Taste the Best of Central & Eastern Europe
Central and Eastern Europe, and Italy, offer a wide range of flavors, with each country serving its own unique cuisines and cooking traditions. You can enjoy the world's best beer in the Czech Republic, delicious fresh seafood along the Croatian coast, award-winning wines in Slovenia, the spices of Hungary, homemade vodkas in Poland and grilled meat specialties in Bosnia to name a few. Beyond the traditional you'll find young chefs in many of these countries have trained abroad, in England, France, Italy, and Spain, picking up techniques they bring home and apply to local ingredients and in so doing creating “modern” versions of their cuisines.
