How exciting is it to go to the Azores? A special place with endless ocean views in the middle of the Atlantic, thousand of kilometres from the rest of the world?
The Azores are a group of nine volcanic islands that were for a long time so hidden, that their stories are often still waiting to be discovered under the hot-boiling lava surface.
As Hungry Whales, with spacious bellies and hearts, we are always looking for good food and stories that make our culi-dreams come true and bring glowing eruptions to our senses: aromas, colours, textures.
In the end of 2018 the Hungry Whales family swam to the rocky shores of the beautiful Azores islands with only one purpose in mind:
to satisfy our hunger and investigate the (food) traditions of the Azores, and who their inhabitants and visitors are: nicely behaved sailor men, naughty pirates and adventurous travellers from Greenland to Australia, from Patagonia to Iceland.
We listened to all their stories and got to know the soul of this wonderful, mysterious archipelago. Now, it's time to share it with the world.
Hungry Whales dove deep in to the nature and culture of the Azores islands, from music vibes to secret sites, pure people talks to surprising city walks, spicy sambal steaks to Azorean lava cakes, from earthy quakes to oceanic shakes. Our Hungry Whale family definitely found those special experiences of which we could only dream of, and we combined and wrapped them all in an unforgettable food experience that will make you enjoy the islands in a special way. The mix of Azorean specialties will let all your senses sing and dance, so that you return home with a full belly and a heart of special memories.
You’ll get to see special locations, the stories behind and tastings that will melt your big whale tong and all of this together with other hungry explorers from all around the world!
