Moments to expect in this food tour in Transylvania:

The villages around Sibiu: Cristian and Sibiel

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!
