Depending on weather conditions, please bring a rain coat and wear appropriate shoes as our tour takes places mainly outdoors.
Depending on season, the exact route can be altered and food tastings will vary according to seasons and availability of products.
We will start our trip with a visit to the fortified church of Cristian where we will also taste a very local Romanian product hard to explain in words but made out of natural pork fat, aged in paprika with red onions and delicious bread. Very tasty, you'll see. You'll learn how the surrounding areas influenced local cuisine and talk about the Romanian gastronomical mosaic during our walk through the village of Sibiel.
We will then taste some New Transylvanian Cuisine recipes: locally sourced appetisers and a sauce of local herbs in a refurbished barn - where you also get the chance to roll your own pancakes, and then eat them!
In Rășinari we will experience a traditional lunch at a local family where you also get to taste various specialities of cheese and the Romanian traditional spirit - tuica or palinca! We will then taste the most well-known desert of Cisnădioara: the Hanklich cake, together with the first Transylvanian wine brought by the Cistercian monks in the 12th century.
After this tasty introduction in our local cuisine, you can relax in the orchard, enjoy the view and read about 200 years old local recipes. Did I mention that Sibiu has been named the 2019 European Gastronomy Capital?
