Volcano Dinner (Cozido Das Furnas)

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.

Delightful experience! Ali was a charming and excellent host into the world of gin and tonics. A great antidote to a rainy afternoon - hanging out in a stunning gin library on an estate in the spectacular azorean landscape.

An activity both locals and visitors can enjoy. I live in Achadinha, on the other side of the island, and the experience was worth the drive. My two nieces (ages 5 and 8) still mention the special day they had at Solar Branco. It was quite nice to see both children and adults

This experience was such good fun and so tasty too! Caroline has this down to a science and makes the whole process simple and fun for those of us rookies in the sausage making game. She walked us through the details of what ingredients were required and how to combine them
