    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!

  • More villages around Sibiu: Rășinari and Cisnădioara

    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.
