Tours for Gourmands
If you are exploring national cuisines of the world, work in a restaurant business, dream about opening your own cafe, or just enjoy cooking and eating delicious foods, then taking a so-called "Gourmand Tour" about Ukraine is right for you! Being a bordering state between Europe and Asia, Ukraine provides place of living to dozens of nationalities, each having its unique culture, beliefs, traditions and, of course, cuisines. Through centuries, various areas of Ukraine have developed a peculiar co-existence of cultures, where one completes another, providing a special "cultural scent" to each city and area of the country.
Discover Ukraine can help you to survey the unique variety of multinational cuisines by suggesting you a tour about the main centers of national cultures. You can trace changes in eating habits of local population, depending on their national roots, traditions, beliefs, natural environment and lifestyles of local population in each area. Depending on your priorities to the areas/cities to visit, we can develop a great itinerary for your tour, and include visiting national cuisine restaurants, private people's homes, food producing factories, winery and brewery plants, and museums of national cuisines all over the country. You will trace the history of national cuisines of Ukrainians, Russians, Polish, Hutsuls, Carpathian peoples, Tatars, Karaims, Georgians, Caucasus nationalities, Turkish settlers, and other nations inhabiting Ukraine.
