Interestingly enough, The Blot had never heard of the Portuguese Azores islands before reading about this week’s episode of Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations. It’s pretty rare for Tony to travel to an area of the world that I have never even heard of, so it definitely brings a new, exciting dynamic to the episode. Having worked in kitchens alongside many generations of Azorean Portuguese immigrants, Tony decides it's time to find out more about their motherland and explore the culture that molded so much of New England's heritage. Check out this great clip below from tonight’s episode of No Reservations:
In tonight’s episode No Reservations - Azores, Bourdain hops from one island to the next while on the archipelago, dining on potatoes, pork, sausage, cabbage, shellfish, Portuguese soup and washing it all down with Gin and Tonics. From the hot springs in Furnas on Sao Miguel to one of the most remote locations in the world on Sao Jorge, and onto the beautiful wine making region of Pico, Tony experiences the best of Azores.
Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations airs Mondays at 10/9c on the Travel Channel.
