When lovers of culinary tourism visit new places, they are always tempted by traditional local specialties. Walking through the narrow streets of Bansko, the air carries the aromatic barbecue smell and all guests of this wonderful ski resort suddenly realized that there are other interesting things besides skiing here.

Bansko is one of the places in Bulgaria, which is distinguished by its homemade sausages and stewed meat dishes. There are plenty of hotels in Bansko, offering delicious cuisine and specialties prepared by highly experienced master chefs, but everyone should visit one of the taverns, offering traditional style dishes served with hot Bulgarian rakia or a glass of red wine in the pleasant traditional Bulgarian style atmosphere. There is nothing more enjoyable than a hot drink with an appetizer sitting in front of a burning fireplace after skiing on the slopes of Pirin Mountain.

Typical for Bansko cuisine are delicious meat dishes with whimsical names like Chomlek, Banski Sudzhuk (Salami), Banska karvavitsa, Katino meze, Banska Kapama and Banski starets. These traditional dishes attend mandatory in the menu of all restaurants in Bansko. Those dishes can be interpreted by the chefs in numerous variants, but the way of preparation and the main ingredients are always respected.

Undoubtedly one of the most delicious and popular dishes is the Banska Kapama, for the preparation of which are used several saw meat – pork, beef, chicken, sausage, bacon. All this meat stews on slow fire for several hours (5-9 hours), in a crock with sauerkraut and rice.

You are welcome in Bansko to spend a magical vacation, to enjoy the natural beauty of Pirin and delicious dishes of local cuisine.
