What You'll Do
  • Try delicious local food
  • Meet a local person and chat about their life
  • Have the privilege to spend time in a local home
  • Help with the food preparation
  • Be treated like one of the family
Join this Bucharest Home Cooked experience with Andrei, Anca and their friends, who welcome you into their home for a delicious, traditional meal. Tantalize your taste buds with foods such as ciroba, sarmale, stuffed peppers and fish, tocanita and more.
What to Expect
This tour is one of the richest travelling experiences you can ever have; the opportunity to enjoy a meal with a family in a local home. 

Andrei and Anca, your local hosts, speak English well. The aim is for you to experience life exactly how it is in Bucharest. It is the chance for you to hang out with everyday locals and get to know Romanian culture through their eyes and their food. 

You will be met at the meeting point by one of the family who speaks English. Head back to your hosts home, and after you are introduced to the family, it is time to get your chef hats on. In terms of the cooking, you can do as much or as little as you like. If you want to learn some Romanian cooking techniques and recipes, this is your chance to learn from a local. Raluca will be happy to show you the ropes but if you prefer to just sit back, chat, and relax, that is ok too. 

When the food is ready you will all sit down together and share the meal prepared, enjoy the conversation, or maybe you will even look at each other’s photographs and maybe take some more all together. 

This experience is real. Your families come from all walks of life. Some you might find have a similar lifestyle to your own, whereas others might come from a very different background. This is your chance to get to know the people of Romania in their own homes. The beauty of this project is that everyone involved in the Home Cooked Series is someone who wants to meet travellers and share experiences with them.
