The Azores are an easy flight from New England this summer with 12 weekly flights from Boston’s Logan Airport and Providence’s Green Airport. Azores Airlines is offering multiple non-stops to the Azores, and beyond to other great destinations with one-stop service to Lisbon, Madeira, Porto, the Canaries and Cape Verde.
In the summertime the Portuguese beach sellers spread the word on the send while carrying their bags full of treats: bolas de berlim, línguas da sogra and bolacha americana. It's a Portuguese habit to have the creamy berliners by the sun and to call the vanilla rolls "língua da sogra" as for Mother in law tongues
Every year in October, the National Gastronomic Festival is held in Santarém to gather different regional flavours in one place. Around 10 different Portuguese cities, from North to South, take their best ingredients and show to the world their specialties. A week of showcooking, presentations, competitions, wine tasting cooking and entertainment will please foodies all around.
