Daily Sofia tours – Bulgarian cuisine
Daily Sofia tours – Bulgarian cuisine is definitely worth trying. All the meat dishes and a lot of flower based food. Even if you try a tomato; you will taste the difference. Here, we are proud to have the best tomatoes in the world.
The traditional Bulgarian cuisine is influenced partly by the culinary customs of the other Balkans nations and shares common features with the Greek, Turkish and the Serbian cuisines. The Bulgarian food is tasty and diverse. The geographical location of the country and its mild climate are perfect conditions for growing different vegetables; fruits, spices and herbs which are basic ingredients in the Bulgarian dishes.
Bulgaria is also famous for the diversity and the quality of its diary products which are widely used in the preparation of the typical Bulgarian food. The most favorite meat of the Bulgarians is the pork, followed by the chicken and the fish. The beef and the lamb meat are less common in the country’s cooking traditions; because most cattle here are actually bred for their milk and not for their meat. Another interesting feature in the Bulgarian cuisine is the fresh bread – the standard wheat bread (made mainly from white or wholegrain flour) is present on the Bulgarian table every day and is a constant companion to any main meal.
