Time Out Market brings the best of the city under one roof. We visited the kitchens of some of the Time Out Market Miami's chefs to discover the behind-the-scenes secrets of their iconic dishes.

Then, we headed to the Time Out Market's Academia to see some of Lisbon's finest chefs at work. Watch and learn.
