Albania’s Culinary Treasures
Pick, harvest, process and enjoy! We visit vineyards, olive oil factories, agrotoursim farms and family gardens. From humble roadside restaurants in the middle of nowhere to top restaurants with former Noma chefs in the kitchen – you will be served outstanding culinary experiences and creative environments.
Everybody who visits Albania returns home remembering the fantastic food. Nearly everything grows in the country (with the exception of some exotic fruits), thanks to 300 days of sunshine per year, the varied topography and the never-ending supply of water from the mountains. The country’s culinary heritage is rich, and young chefs are rediscovering and preserving this cultural heritage. Albanian cuisine has gained increased international attention recently, and international visitors travel to the country’s restaurants, agrotourism farms and vinyards to find out what this little country has been hiding in its culinary treasure chest.
The country is covered with olive trees, fruit orchards, nut trees and the list continues. The Ionian and Adriatic sea, alongside large lagoons provide fresh mussels, fish and seafood.
The soil is rich with nutrients and farming has not been industrialised. Small farms and family gardens are the main source of agricultural produce. Everywhere along the roads, you will find stands with people selling sunkissed fruits and vegetables according to season.
The restaurants are numerous and serve fantastic food. Nearly every restaurant has its own farm. The flavors are heavenly.
