The spirit of Bulgarian villages and small towns preserves the atmosphere, emotions, knowledge and customs that make us appreciate the little things that truly make us happy. We invite you to leave the urban jungle behind for a while and immerse yourself in an unforgettable village experience with a delicious aftertaste. In an idyllic setting and with the help of an authentic culinary master, you will experience the magic of preparing a typical regional dish, you will taste local food and learn more about village life. Indulge in a rest for the mind, open your senses to new knowledge and tastes, get to know the unknown Bulgarian village!

You probably think that the Rhodope cuisine cannot surprise you, but the people of Mogilitsa keep unique local recipes with tastes unknown to city people. Some of them are an ancient technology for "shrinking" couscous and a dish with the twisty name "sindermyo". We invite you to taste these dishes and  to prepare them together with cooks from the village.

Couscous originated from the Berbers and, like many other ancient foods, it was introduced to Bulgaria from the Middle East. Today, we know little about this product in contrast to the widely used Italian "couscous" - a pasta that is actually called peperini, acini di pepe or piombi in Italy. Gastronomists point out that there is a difference between the two products, not only in the origin, in the ingredients and in the preparation technique, but also in their taste.

It may sound incredible, but the ancient Middle Eastern technique of "shrinking" couscous has been preserved as a living tradition in Mogilitsa, and nowadays the hosts at the village continue to apply it.

Sindermyo on the other hand is a traditional regional dish with a strange name that looks like kachamak but isn't. It's also made from corn semolina, but with a generous amount of yellow cheese or mature cheese added to it. Legends say that in the past, it was prepared by the locals only on festive occasions for the family. Get to know the mastery of preparing these dishes!

The experience includes:

  • Demonstration of “shrinking” couscous
  • Culinary workshop for two  for preparing sindermyo 
  • Homemade treats for two with local dishes

Duration: 3 h. 

Location: Mogilitsa village

Idea: combine your culinary workshop with a visit to the nearby cave "Uhlovitsa" and the Gorlo Canyon of Arda river
