The Banat Bulgarians are families that escaped from the country 2 centuries ago in the suppression of the rebellions during Ottoman rule. Some of them return after the liberation of Bulgaria, and other descendants still live abroad. This also affects the Banat kitchen. At the festival, you will be able to see exhibitions-bazaars of traditional Banat dishes, authentic food from different localities and contemporary readings of the dishes.

Since the 2017th year is also the year of the rooster, there is also a special culinary exhibition where the dishes will be subordinate to the taste or shape of the bird.

I love to travel because of the encounters with diverse people and cultures and the chance to touch other worlds. And this can happen even without leaving the borders of your own country. For example, at a festival, you can travel thousands of years and dozens of borders without leaving your place. For me, the journey is not only beautiful landscapes and ancient landmarks but also thousands of human stories. Let's learn them together.
