What To Expect
This tour aims to give you one of the richest travelling experiences you can ever have; the opportunity to enjoy a meal with a family in a local home.
Stefan and Raluca, your local hosts, speak English well so you won't need sign language to understand each other! The aim is for you to experience life exactly like a local. It is the chance for you to hang out with everyday locals, and get to know Romanian culture through their eyes, and their food.
Go straight to your hosts' home and after you're introduced to the family, it's time to get our 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 want to just sit back, chat and relax, that's cool too.
When the food is ready you will all sit down together and share the meal prepared, enjoy the conversation, or maybe even look at each others' photographs and take some more all together. This experience is real. Our 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; something that you certainly won't find on every tour in Bucharest! The beauty of this project is that everyone involved in our Home Cooked Series is someone who wants to meet travelers and share experiences with them.
