About the Experience

! This tour does not include pick-up and drop-off & transportation from the meeting point to Furnas. You have to drive in your own car from Fenais da Luz to Furnas.


With this unique cooking class, you'll learn how to prepare the famous "cozido", a traditional Azorean stew cooked in the underground steam of volcanic vents!

Our local chef will teach you about the ingredients used for this delicious, hearty stew before taking you to the special location where your meal has been cooking. You'll get to see your pot be taken out of the underground at the fumaroles next to Furnas' beautiful lake, where your stew has been cooking naturally, underground for 6 hours. 

In this class you will:

  • Meet Maria at her house at 10:30 AM (in Fenais da Luz, a 20-minute drive from Ponta Delgada) and there she will teach you how the dish "cozido" is put together (the ingredients it requires, the layering of the ingredients, among other things)
  • Drive from Maria's House to Furnas and once you arrive you will see how the "cozido" is taken out of the underground, where it has been cooking for 6 hours
  • Eat the delicious "cozido" near the margins of the beautiful Furnas lake! If the weather does not allow to eat outdoors near Furnas Lake, the "cozido" will be brought back to Maria's place so you can enjoy your meal there. This meal also includes beverages and dessert.

Note: Dietary restrictions and special requests can be made after booking.
