Description

This is one of the most emblematic dishes of the island of S. Miguel in the Azores, baked beneath the earth in the Furnas lagoon. Several ingredients are placed in a pot that is buried next to the hot water springs. It takes five hours to bake them by the natural heat that seeps up, produced by volcanic activity. Tasting the Furnas stew is an unmissable experience for all visitors of the island.
