What you'll do

(Can request the opening of some date to be agreed, depending on the number of people.)

Unique experience for those who really enjoy savoring traditional food and especially getting involved in food preparation and learning techniques that can lead to their homes. The food is made in a wood-fired oven made of lava stones, similar to our ancestors and that gives an unmistakable flavor that can not be found in the local restaurants. Besides the food, the drink is always present and I give tips of the best wines and we talk above all about what characterizes us as islanders in the middle of this immense ocean, speaking of ocean, you never know how the dinner ends ... one of the last was in water at 2 in the morning on a natural beach surrounded by this beautiful nature.

Another of my hobbies is the underwater fishing and the walks in the interior of the island by zones that do not usually come in the books of the tourism, maybe if we still add some of my hobbies to the day of the dinner
Other things to note
Cooking is not service ... Cooking is a way to love others.

We speak English and Spanish and then the wine speaks for itself :)

I'm Hugo. After studying in tourism and having worked for 12 years as a public health official, I decided to dedicate myself to what I really liked and decided to give wings to one of my passions, the cuisine. After many experiences with tourists that I received in my local accommodations and until today we created bonds of friendship, one of the things so simple and that we loved was to spend a serenade next to the wood oven to cook traditional recipes, good meat, fish, make the dough for the homemade bread or even see the children's face making their pizza and all with good wine and laughter

Excellent way to start our trip. I cannot say enough good things about this experience and Hugo and his wonderful family. Hugo and Rosa welcomed us into their home and treated us like family. We all felt extremely comfortable with them, their children played with some of the people in our group and Hugo and Rosa sat and talked with us for hours, making us feel like old friends. Their home is great, super spacious and beautiful. Our party of 9 had plenty of room and didn't feel cramped at all. Everything was extraordinary. The bread, that we helped to make, was absolutely amazing; I think all of the loaves were devoured within minutes. The beef and tuna Hugo made was delicious as well as the sweet potatoes. Rosa's tarts at the end were also great. We all left completely stuffed and happy. We were extremely happy that we did this experience on the first night we were there because we were able to get Hugo's expert opinion as a local on what to do and where to go while we were there. The dinner started our trip off on a great note and I cannot recommend enough for everyone visiting Terceira Island to make Hugo's a must on their list.

A lovely evening with a wonderful family in Terceira. My partner and I were welcomed like family at Hugo and Rosa’s lovely home. The hours passed so quickly sharing great food, wine and stories. Overall, a lovely warm and special welcome to the island of Terceira. We left feeling so connected to this lovely family.

Dinner at Hugo and Rosemaria’s is an excellent way to enjoy a home made meal (which is delicious) and learn more about the Azores and the culture of the island.

zusammen mit einer sehr netten Polnischen Famile, Hugos Familie und einem Freund haben wir einen unvergleichlich geselligen und leckeren Abend verbracht. Wir haben so viele interessante Gespräche führen können, dass das Mithelfen beim Essen machen nebenbei erfolgte. Dafür war das Brot, das Fleisch und der Fisch nachher trotzdem unvergleichlich lecker. Es ist schon eine besondere Art der Zubereitung, wenn alles im Holzbackofen zubereitet wird. Zusammen mit dann doch ein wenig zu viel Rotwein hat man sich auch durch die anregenden Gespräche richtig wie in einer einheimischen Familie gefühlt. Der Nachtisch aus Natas und Likören war eine gelungene Abrundung des Abends. Vielen Dank an Hugo und seine Famile für diesen wunderschönen Abend
