The tour will continue onto Lagoa das Furnas, where you will watch the preparation of Cozido das Furnas – a local speciality dish prepared by lowering the pot into a hot spring heated by volcanic steam.  The food cooks slowly, for around 5 hours, and the only liquid used are the juices from the ingredients.  This special dish, named after the village, will be served later for lunch.
