Food & Drinks
We try to source and produce locally as much food as possible for our guests.
We have our own vegetable gardens. We breed the rare ‘Transylvanian Black Bare-Necked’ chicken. Eggs, milk, yoghurt, cheeses and honey come from local sources. All jams and preserves are prepared in our kitchens. The two-course lunches and three-course dinners are prepared as of old by the cooks who have been passing down the recipes for generations. We also cater for vegetarians or special dietary requests. During tours, lunch is provided at a restaurant or in the form of a picnic (if you are in the countryside ).
Since 2019, our kitchen staff is enjoying additional trainings by the culinary team of Valea Verde restaurant which is well known for its gastronomy.
We offer an exhaustive list of fine Romanian wines à la carte.
Dinner is usually served as ‘table d’hôte’ in the common dining rooms. The evenings have often been praised as a continuous dinner party and a stay at the guesthouses as if you were transported into the novels of Tolstoy or Banffy and had come to visit friends in the countryside.
