Food & Wine Tasting Tours
You probably didn't know this, but Romanians love eating and drinking!
Benefiting from rich, fertile lands and a strong rural lifestyle and history, Romanian cuisine is dominated by products and dishes made with peasant (farmer) food: garden vegetables, livestock meat, dairies, nuts and fruits, all transformed into delicious dishes such as sarmale, _ciorba_ (sour soup), stews, cured meats, matured cheeses, fruity cakes or jams! What's more, Romanian gastronomy drew heavy influences from its neighbours, particularly Hungarian, Turkish or Slavic, so you will find some similarities or even familiar adaptations.

Reviews about Food & Wine Tasting Tours
My sister and I shared a delightful day with Elena exploring the Obor Market and other locally known food stops. Elena was knowledgeable about the history of the areas we encountered. She was friendly and welcoming. I am in Bucharest another week and plan to take my husband to all the places Elena introduced me to because they were so good!
I had a wonderful tour with Elena. She was very knowledgeable and pursued a route which included old and new districts with tasty stops along the way. Fabulous farmers’ market — be prepared to shop if you can! We finished with a lunch sampling of typical Romanian specialties. Good balance of food stops to not become overwhelming while walking. I recommend this tour for local insight.
This tour was absolutly excellent and the best thing on my Romania trip so far! I had a great time and learned a lot about local beer but also the city. Lots of fun, highly recommend!
This was a great tour. It was nice to see and learn more of the back streets in Bucharest. The food tastings were all great and fun. Our guide was wonderful and customized the tour to our preferences. I would highly recommend this tour.
