Massa Sovada: Azorean Sweet Bread - not just for Easter
10 chefs for 10 days to give you a taste of the Azores: 10FEST 2014

The amazing fresh cheese in the Azores called "queijo fresco"

Every meal in the Azores seems to start with a fresh cheese called queijo fresco that is served with pimenta da terra (red pepper paste). This fresh, creamy, soft cheese has a mild taste and is un-aged- hence the name. And, given the multitude of cows on the Azores- you know just how fresh it is!  While queijo fresco is commonly served around Portugal, the Azores variety is velvety and delicious-served with fresh white corn bread – and the already mentioned tangy red peeper sauce... yum!
