Gastronomy and Wine

If food is one of the reasons to travel, you are in the right place. For the people of Terceira Island, life is synonymous with festivities and festivities are synonymous with food and drink!

Stop wondering ...

Cows are raised in pastures, free and happy, and their meat is juicy and tasty. There are quite a few meat dishes and we can find them all over the island, including typical ones, such as beef stews, pork rinds, blood sausages, linguiça sausages and rabbit meat, and simpler ones such as Angus beef on a stick or steaks that “melt” in your mouth.

To sweeten the mouth, the emphasis is given to Dona Amélia cakes, where sugarcane honey and cinnamon are combined with currants and ciders. Legend has it that the name of the cake is associated with the passage of Queen D. Amélia through the island. The “Alfenim”, another sweet characteristic of the island, associated with the Feasts of Espírito Santo, consists of a sugar paste, transformed, by the skillful hands of the ladies, into works of art in the form of flowers, doves, chickens, swans and rabbits, a fantastic world of sugar and fantasy. There are also other options such as Conde da Praia, Cornucopia or Arroz Doce that complement the dessert list
