Favorite meal everyone should try

(Livramento, Sao Miguel)

Hi Rob,
I was thinking today. After 5 years of living here full time, I have decided my favorite meal is the Cozido. There are many excellent traditional meals in the Azores but this one I keep coming back to regularly. It has many different foods cooked together to make one great flavor. Everyone who tries this dish, seems to like it.
The cozido( Furnas stew), is a very traditional Sao Miguel meal made up with different local vegetables and meats cooked together in a large pot set in the steaming hot ground of the volcano hot springs next to the Furnas lake.

Here is a great video to show how the Cozido is done. Mmmmm good! Enjoy!

Hello Bonita,

Thanks for this tip! I have enjoyed the cozido on several occasions.

Hope all is well with you. I hear the winter weather has been nice again this year.

Please say hi to my dad. I bet you'll see him before I talk to him.
