Azerbaijan has one of the most delicious cuisines ever. It is a mixture of turkish, iranian, middles eastern region and definitely with local elements and tastes.
Tour is mainly about visiting granny's house locating in Sumqayit city and taste the great examples of national cuisine. Generally, there will be a fixed menu, but we can discuss it after booking according to your preferences. All food, pickles etc will be homemade. (So it includes different variety of food which can be prepared at home, example - kebabs are not available in our menu).
There will be around 5 types of main meal on the table - example Dolma, Qutab, Pilaf etc, soup, some salads, juice, pickles etc. At the end, you will have chance to take some meals with yourself as takeaway.
Then, you will enjoy the tea with local traditional sweet (it can be shekerbura, paxlava or qogal etc depending on some reasons)
Everybody goes to restaurant while travelling to try national cuisine, but we are offering you national cuisine in homemade style.
Some important notes:
1. Almost everything will be homemade (even including juice and bread)
2. Please let us know about vegeterian options.
3. Meal will be prepared in halal, muslim conditions (so there will not be pork at all), but we can take a wine or beer with ourselves to their house.
4. Mainly chicken and beef will be used - so please after booking it would be very nice to be in touch about menu and your health conditions (anything allergic or you can not eat) to inform granny beforehand as the meal will be ready when we already reach there
