Tasty Heritage

Diets changed through time, but one thing remained the same – need and desire for food. Everyone loves to eat, and Balkans is famous for it's tasty and diverse cuisine. It varies from Mediterranean to strong mountain dishes, and is a combination of different climates, peoples and rulers.

By tasting food, one can learn a lot about history and (dis)similarities of population that live in the same region. The same folk can have diverse food habits according to the part of the region and rulers they were influanced by, likewise different peoples can have customs and diets that are very much alike . In the Balkans this is all noticeable, in the same way a hospitality is.

In the root of hospitality and love lays shering. Since most of the SEE region has never been commonly known as well-heeled, offering a food to guests was a usual practice of showing respect and friendship. What a host ate, guest ate as well. For a host it has always been improper not to offer, and for a guest it has always been offensive not to accept. This legacy lives today.
