Foodies - Grand tour of Romania in 10 days!

Eat, drink and discover Romania!

We like food too! Tasty food!  Eat, drink and discover Romania!

While Romania is better known internationally for other attractions as Dracula, medieval towns, fortified churches, painting monasteries, and Nadia Comaneci or Ilie Nastase and recently Simona Halep, its lesser-known cuisine is something well worth exploring. Traditional Romanian recipes bring together a mix of ingredients and are heavily influenced by Balkan, Turkish, Serbian, German, and Hungarian cuisines. Due to this enriched experience, Romanian food is varied, filling, and very savory.

Coming to Romania is a must for any travel enthusiast and food lover because there is such richness in terms of traditional cuisine, that your senses will be absolutely spoiled with amazing and intense flavors.

Meantime our tour is based on tasting real food and drinks, we will combine very well with discovering the most important and attractive attractions.

Bucovina is the land of boletus (mushrooms), cream and fish. These three ingredients are often in the main dishes of the region. The food is plentiful and delicious, and if you eat at a local’s house, make sure you finish everything because it is considered impolite to leave food on your plate. But that shouldn’t be too hard to do with such appetizing cuisine.
One of the dishes specific to the region is the "Hârzob with smoked trout", which is trout smoked in fir branches and spiced with salt, pepper, garlic and "boia", a powder made from red peppers. 
Pork dishes are also popular, including the Tochitură Bucovineană, a pork stew served with polenta and a fried egg.
For something lighter, try the Ciorbă Rădăuțeană – chicken soup with vegetables and a broth thickened with eggs, cream and flour – or the Boletus stew, typical for the region.

As we will combine visits with food, after a delicious local breakfast that includes also local cheese and homemade jam and others very tasty, we will go on a visit.

These depict Biblical and other scenes, designed in sequences almost like strip cartoons to educate the local people in the Orthodox religion. Due to their singleness, the monasteries in Bucovina are now UNESCO protected cultural sites. The art historians compare their artistic value with the mural paintings of San Marco church of Venice or the church of Orvietto. The secret of the Moldavian painters who prepared the colors and the techniques that made the paintings incredibly resistant is still a mystery.

In the afternoon, we will cross the Carpathian Mountains to Maramures, the famous region in the north-west of Romania, the countryside carved in wood!

That region is Maramureș, a place where technology hasn’t yet replaced the ancestral practices, boasting a civilization that today proudly displays a bucolic countryside carved in wood.
The local cuisine is mainly based on pork meat and cheese made from sheep-milk or cow-milk, typical for the pastoral way of life of the region. Some of the specialities are “bulz”, polenta balls stuffed with “brânză de burduf”, a sheep-milk cheese with a strong flavour, homemade pork sausages, made just after the “pig-slaughter” around Christmas by filling gut casings with ground pork meat.
Each meal starts with a glass of horincă and if you are invited to a local’s house, remember that they consider it impolite to leave food on the plate. However, once they see that you have finished, you will start hearing ‘Do you want some more? What can I serve you with?’.
