cooking class volcano style

Cooking in a traditional house with a view of the big volcano - a unique experience in the crater landscape of Chã das Caldeiras. 

It used to be considered a dish for the poor - today the delicious stew is an integral part of Cape Verdean society. The Katxupa was developed during the colonial period. Local products were used to prepare the rich stew, as the imported products were simply too expensive for many local families.

Our cooking class takes place in a traditional family house in the crater landscape of Chã das Caldeiras on Fogo island.

And while the Katxupa is cooking over the fire, hike to Pico Pequeno (3 hours, moderate). In November 2014 the Pico Pequeno broke out for the last time. Here you can see the sulfur vents, reminiscent of a life underground.

Day-Tour: 6-7 hours
