 It's time to spoil your taste buds!

Transylvania is an undiscovered foodies paradise, but when it comes to savouring the fantastic local cuisine and drinks, appetites of all sizes will be satisfied.  With a large variety of flavours,  local recipes have got plenty of surprises for you, that cover all tastes and preferences. Locals will be happy to welcome you with their local wine, brandy and beer.  It is home to the fifth largest wine producer in Europe and among the top ten in the world. Following an old tradition in beer production, and famous for its strong plum brandy, Transylvania  is a true culinary gem that has yet to be discovered!

We'll give you a few hints: mince meat sausages (mici), local cheese, sour soups, home made stews or cakes will satisfy your tummy.  When you get thirsty try the diverse range of local wine. If you fancy something sweet have a shot of sour cherry brandy (visinata), or if you want a strong sensation have a shot of plum brandy (palinca).
