Trying the local and most authentic foods when you travel should always be a top priority! It's one of the best ways to experience local culture. Today, I got to try the very best local cuisine Madeira has to offer.


Starting at Taberna Ruel restaurant, we try the traditional bread Bolo do caco, scabbard fish with fried banana, Polvo (octopus), local fresh cheese, Espetada and Madeira's famous pork Christmas dish. Then we drink Madeira's famous Poncha, before heading to the farmers market. Somehow, I managed to save room for Madeira Cake, Madeiran tea, local biscuits, chocolate infused with local fruits (Uau Cacau), Portugals famous pastel de nata (egg tart), and local cheesecake. Of course, we couldn't forget, Blandy's Madeira wine!
