Traditional gastronomy and confectionery proved to be in a relationship of complicity with the best wines produced in this territory, to which the interpretations of the popular Algarve Group of Cantares Fonte Nova were associated.

About 5pm, it was time for the presentation and tasting of the “Florados de Lagoa”, flavored by the soft and sweet Algarmoscatel of adega ÚNICA. At dinner time, at 8pm, a remarkable gastronomic moment again took place, this time entitled "Lagoa, its history, its products and the kitchen". Snacks such as the “Biqueirão”, the canned mackerel with seasoned carrot, the Seafood Soup with sweet potatoes and the Corn Porridges with clams were served.

The Charneco Restaurant was the gastronomic ambassador of Lagoa, while the confectionery was represented by specialist Cremilde Paias Andrez, both originally from Estômbar.
