Winter is ideal for tasting various delicacies with friends or business partners. Soon you will have a chance to try more than 40 restaurants in all regions of Slovakia – this is the offer of the 2017 Winter Food Festival and the tickets are on sale now! The fifth edition of this exceptional gastronomic event is for anyone who has a passion for quality gastronomy, wants to visit the best and often unaffordable restaurants and get great meals for symbolic prices.
WINTER FOOD FESTIVAL INTRO
The whole idea of this event is to attract the attention to real quality restaurants and good food. Restaurants chosen by gastronomic professionals design special menus for a limited period of time. This way you can get to taste delicacies you maybe would not even know about. All it takes is to buy a voucher – choose how many courses you are able to eat and whether you prefer to visit a local restaurant or join a gourmet bus which has more stops!
The festival kicks off on 13th January 2017 and will last till 15th February 2017.
DISCOVER THE TASTES OF SLOVAKIA
Participating restaurants offer a special menu to the culinary enthusiasts, consisting of three meals:
- Our iconic dish – characterizing a given restaurant
- Tastes of the regions – with an emphasis on using local and seasonal ingredients
- Our grandmas’ recipes – family recipes with a long tradition
The majority of the restaurants is in our capital city, however the organizers thought of other cities as well – and are preparing various gastronomic buses with which you can travel not only to the surrounding towns but also those more distant ones. We tried one gastronomic bus last year and can only recommend it – you’ ll be able to please your taste buds from the very morning till late afternoon, and drink the fantastic food down with some quality wines. The info on these buses is coming to their webpage soon.
SOMETHING FOR THE WINE LOVERS
Slovakia produces some high quality wines and if you are into wines, we recommend you go for a bus trip that includes a stop in one of the wineries in the region. These are usually small family wineries producing special products – and you get to see the wine cellars as well :)
GASTRONOMIC OVERNIGHT TRIPS
Treat yourself to experience the festival with a three course menu combined with relaxation in one of the participating hotels – the price of gastronomic overnight trips includes accommodation with discounts up to 75 % and a three course festival evening for each guest. For more information, refer to the offer of a specific hotel or guesthouse (more info coming soon).
