Bucharest - Farmer's market visit - Cooking class in Sacele village - Bucharest
Meet your guide at your Bucharest hotel, and travel in the comfort of a private vehicle to the mythical province of Transylvania, where dense forests, mountain scenery, and traditional ways of life help create a storybook atmosphere. Along the way, learn how Romanians do their shopping with a visit to a farmers market for fresh produce and herbs, plus a supermarket stop to collect other ingredients.
When you arrive at a small Transylvanian village, you'll be welcomed by a local housewife and cook into her private home kitchen. Follow her guidance to prepare the main course and dessert using family recipes passed down through generations. Learn about the history and dominant flavors of Romanian cuisine, which carries heavy Ottoman influence and traits of neighboring Germany, Serbia, Bulgaria, and Hungary.
You may make a typical dish like the cabbage rolls or other hearty dishes, and something sweet for dessert. When the cooking’s done, sit down with your host to enjoy the meal, along with a glass of wine or a shot of homemade palinka (plum brandy). Then, relax on the scenic return drive to the capital, where the 10-hour tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.
