You can also try cooking other Bulgarian dishes that are featured on the tour: tarator, kavarma and shopska salad. We can also teach you to make the infamous Bulgarian yogurt – Lactobacillus Bulgaricus – but please be aware that because of the length of time it takes, you’ll need to come back the next day to see the finished result.

Each class is prepared to ensure you receive the maximum experience of cooking in combination with learning how each dish is special to Bulgarian cultural cuisine. If there’s a recipe not on our list but you’d like to learn how to cook it, just let us know when you get in touch and we’ll adapt the lesson accordingly.
