Cook and Eat with Locals in Sofia: authentic food experience

Our Food Experience usually begins at 10:00. We meet in front of St Alexander Nevsky cathedral in Sofia.

Together we will go and buy all the products, needed for the cooking class and take you to a local home. There you will learn more about the Bulgarian food and traditions.

Let us cook and prepare our light lunch or dinner together. Cook and Eat will begin with making banitsa (salty pastry with eggs and cheese). We prepare a mixture of eggs, white cheese, yoghurt, baking soda and oil or butter. We put it in between the pastry layers. Then we will put the banitsa in the oven for 30-40 minutes. While we are waiting for it to get ready, we will taste the Shopska salad (white Bulgarian cheese, tomatoes and cucumbers). During our Sofia cooking class, you will taste not only Bulgarian food, but local alcohol as well. The local drink, which is the best friend of the salad, is called rakia. You will get a glass as a starter, but don’t drink it at once. :)

With the banitsa you will have the option to taste a local beer or wine and learn how to say Nazdrave (Cheers). Smile and have fun, because we will send you the photos after that to make sure you have a good memory of this day after the Bulgarian alcohol tasting.

At the end of our cooking class, we will give you as a present the recipe for the banitsa. You can prepare it at home for your family and friends and share with them your experience with the Bulgarian food.

Добър апетит = Bon appetit!
