Maria’s cooking class was a unique and incredible cooking experience. my fiancé and I started the class by meeting another couple in Maria’s home where she gave us a tour of her impressive garden, allowed us to taste the fresh fruits and smell the various herbs. we then prepared the food and then drove to Furnas to cook the video in the natural hot springs. Maria gave us great recommendations to tour the city of Furnas, (recommend the botanical garden). Then in the evening we returned to finish preparing the food and enjoyed an evening of great conversation, over delicious wine and food! I highly recommend this experience to anyone who is interested in immersing themselves in the traditional culinary culture of the Azores.
