This tour is a part of the Urban Adventures Home Cooked series and 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. Your local host speaks English well, so you won’t need sign language to understand each other! The aim is for you to experience life exactly how it is in Brasov. It is the chance for you to hang out with everyday locals, and get to know Romanian culture through their eyes, and their food. Could there be a more perfect way to get to know local life in Brasov?! We don’t think so.
You will be met at the meeting point by a member of the family who speaks English. We’ll head back to your hosts’ home, and after you’re introduced, 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. They 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 to share the meal prepared. 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 Brasov! The beauty of this project is that everyone involved in our Home Cooked Series is someone who wants to meet travellers and share experiences with them.
