The eight 30-minute episodes were filmed between the island of São Miguel in the Azores, parts of California and Rhode Island, Lusa told the creator of the series. They will be broadcasted initially on PBS Rhode Island and will then be available to other affiliates of the public television network.

“We are making history on television,” said Maria Lawton, pointing to the fact that there has never been a program on Portuguese cuisine in the United States, as opposed to “all that is nationality” and immigrant communities.
