Coming to the Azores is all about connecting with nature. And enjoying some of the unique experiences that these islands have to offer. One of the most unique and exciting things to enjoy is the Cozido das Furnas – a meal cooked in a volcano. This famous rustic dish is traditionally made with meat and vegetables. Solar Branco’s version is a modern interpretation of the dish, using fresh local seasonal ingredients and a special blend of herbs and spices delivering a delicious and refined twist with homemade sausages. Your host, Caroline, is famous for her homemade sausages! These delicious pork sausages are made using the freshest, top-quality Azorean ingredients.

Your evening starts by joining us to pick up the pot from the cooking site. Thanks to the volcanic heat, the pot is kept naturally at a temperature of 80 – 90 degrees Celsius and cooks for there for at least 6 hours. It’s a fun photo opportunity to show friends and family how you hauled your dinner out of the steam of the volcano. You’ll return to The Solar Branco Eco Estate to enjoy this unique food with local wines, beer and accompaniments.
Your meal starts with a gin and tonic. Red and white wine, beer and water are served throughout. We end with a delicious dessert. The dinner takes place at our gin library and terrace, where you can enjoy your meal as you watch the sun go down over the hills and ocean beyond. We love to host friends and family for lunches and dinners, and are known for our rustic meals, served family style. We delight in using fresh, seasonal local ingredients and surprising our guests with something unexpected.
Please note: This does not include transportation. You will need to make your own way to and from the cooking site.
