Stop wondering ... and taste the Gastronomy of Terceira Island
Cows are raised in pastures, free and happy, and their meat is juicy and tasty. There are quite 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.
However, the most traditional dish in Terceira Island is Alcatra. It’s a beef marinated in red wine, garlic and spices like cloves, allspice, then it’s roasted in a clay pot. A true culinary masterpiece from Terceira.
