Throughout your Explore The Azores trip, you will be fully catered for with breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks in between.
Azorean cuisine is a rich, hearty and peasant-based style of cooking. Here's a typical daily menu.
Here are a few of the most popular dishes:
Cozida - A unique stew from the island of Såo Miguel. This is a sort of one-pot meal that is actually cooked by digging a hole in the ground near the famous caldeiras (hot geysers) of Furnas.
Alcatra - A popular Azorean dish that
hails from the island of Terçeira. This pot roast-style dish can be made
from pork, beef, or another meat and is slow-baked with tomatoes,
onions, garlic and cloves.
Ananas - Pineapples are grown throughout the islands - they feature on most desert menus!
Massa Sovada - Portuguese sweet bread, massa sovada, originated in the Azores and is a common part of Christmas and Easter.
Dairy - The Azores are famous for their rich dairy products. Cows tend to be used for milk
rather than as meat (pork is the main meat used in cooking). At
breakfast, you are likely to be served a small glass jar filled with
local yogurt, bread and rich butter, and coffee with lots of
steamed whole milk.
