To add more flavor to the private tour in Romania, a “MUST DO” is to visit some local ladies that shall actually welcome you in their homes and sometimes even in their own kitchen (especially during the off season period) to serve a traditional lunch or dinner prepared by themselves.
If you are in Transylvania visiting the famous castles Peles and Bran (aka Dracula’s) or the hidden treasures which are the Saxon Villages and their Fortified Churches (UNESCO), exploring Maramures region with the most lively traditions and the beautiful Wooden Chruches (UNESCO), visiting the Painted Monasteries (UNESCO) of Bucovina or taking some boat trips in the Danube Delta (UNESCO) we shall invite you to have an authentic experience and visit some local ladies for lunch or dinner.
It sounds like a dream meal nowadays, most of their food is organic and here I mean the vegetables are grown in their own gardens, the eggs, cheese, milk and sour cream come from their own cows, sheep or chicken, the meat (either pork, chicken, beef, sheep/lamb) comes also from their own animals or some other people in the village. Some of these ladies hardly buy anything from a shop. Also the local moonshine (made of plums, apples or other fruits) is something to experience, just not in large quantities.
Apart from the food experience, you shall have the chance to find out more about the cooks themselves and even get their secret recipes shared with you.
