Brief description: Well, our inquisitive travelers, today you have to get acquainted with the cuisine of Uzbekistan. Without exaggeration, we can say that for a European Uzbek cuisine is a great discovery.

Uzbek cuisine is probably one of the richest in the East! Located on the caravan roads of the Great Silk Road, Uzbekistan for many centuries absorbed the most interesting and unusual recipes of dishes from different countries. Each of the Uzbek dishes has its own traditional rituals and ways of cooking, and in different parts of Uzbekistan the same food is prepared in completely different ways!

This crumbly Uzbek pilaf, gentle manta rays, fragrant samosa, fine horse meat sausage - kazi, succulent shourpa festive Naryn and everyday honum, stunningly delicious meat - Bukhara tandoor-kabob, juicy Tashkent kebabs, exotic Khorezm tuhum-hut is far from complete list! You are also waiting for workshops on cooking national dishes. Do not forget about the dessert - dozens of varieties of oriental sweets, sunny fruits, dried apricots, raisins and various types of nuts!

And in order to return every time to the generous Uzbek dastarkhan with a healthy appetite, we offer you a rich cultural program, during which you will get acquainted with the ancient history of Uzbekistan. The grand monuments of Samarkand, Bukhara, Shakhrisabz and Khiva still keep the memory of Tamerlane, Alexander the Great, Genghis Khan and numerous trade caravans of the Great Silk Road to this day.

This trip will be the most delicious in your collection! Discover tours to Uzbekistan and the world of oriental cooking!
