More than a traditional Transylvanian lunch, this is a complete immersion into the Transylvanian culture and family life and a nice way to interact with the locals, to explore the traditional way of living in Transylvania and to discover the authentic local gastronomy and wines.
The lunch is served in a local family house located in a Transylvanian Saxon village established over 700 years ago, 40 km away from Sighisoara. The food is cooked and served by the local family according to Slow Food principles: local ingredients cooked on traditional old receipts with great care for cleanliness.
A seasonal soup followed by a steak with seasonal garnish and/or pickles. As a desert a home-made cake, usually a fruit pie based on season`s fruits will be served.
Included drinks: water, home-made palinka (traditional local home-made brandy out of fruits), tea made out of local herbs, coffee and fruit syrups such as elderflower cordial or lemonade.
There are no portions, the quantity of the food served is at the discretion of tourists.
Wine tasting: 5 different types of local home-made wines will be served accompanied by explanations about the over 2000 year old local wine culture, wine making techniques, and a lot of fun.
A homemade jams tasting such as raspberry, strawberries, blackberries, etc as the family are well known jams producers.
