Turet Kulinare 2018 - Edhe Ksamili shijohet ndryshe!

Albanian Food Tours 2018 - Ksamili
Të rekomandosh Ksamilin si vend të përshtatshëm për të provuar ushqime të veçanta duke gati si herezi sepse me fluksin e jashtëzakonshëm të verës, është e pamundur të gjesh apo të dallosh shije unike. Por e vërteta është që pikërisht Ksamili i rrëmujës së madhe të verës është ai që vjen në turet tona në mënyrën më origjinale të mundshme.
Në numrin e kaluar bashkëpunëtori ynë Soraldo Nebo, guxoi ta ofronte zonën e Ksamilit dhe të Butrintit përmes Turit të Midhjes, në një mënyrë krejtësisht të veçantë, duke e bërë këtë tur edhe suksesin e verës 2017. Dhe në këtë vazhdë, në vjeshtë erdhën Turet e Ullirit e të Mandarinës, për të vijuar këtë vit me një rekomandim që gradualisht mori edhe tiparet e të gjithë listës së tureve të revistës Travel për këtë vit. “Ksamili Taste & Suggest”, lindi si ide nga përshtypjet e shkëlqyera të turistëve për restorantet e Ksamilit ku kishin shijuar vaktet e tyre. Po atëherë, përse të mos e rekomandojmë Ksamilin pikërisht përmes këtyre përshtypjeve? Do të jetë kartvizita më e mirë. Dhe ashtu bëmë.
Në numrin e ardhshëm, do t`ju rekomandojmë ne listën tonë të restoranteve më të mira ose më mirë, të mënyrave më të mira se si të shijohet kuzhina e Ksamilit. travel

If we told you since the beginning of the tour that we will take you to Berat, you would certainly recall the magical Mangalem, white houses, the castle, Gorica in the front and the bridge connecting two historical neighborhoods. But, not this time. We will not take you to Berat. We could go after the tour to visit and see from up close the 2500-years-old city of Berat. For our culinary tour we decided to go to a new place, one that you haven’t perhaps visited yet. If you heard about the famous wine of Berat or its figs, they come from Roshnik. This is the place you will visit today, a place where grapes are cultivated to make wine and where the most famous figs of Albania come from. Roshniku is a village in Berat, at the foot of Tomorri Mountain that is known for grapes, figs, organic wine production known as "Pules of Berat,” and the best organic dishes in the area. The nature of Roshniku is breathtaking and the locals would even tell you Roshniku has the best nature. Locals are known to be hard working loving people. All of them are busy with viticulture and arboriculture, making the village a well-known destination for culinary tourism.

Belsh is so beautiful! It has always been beautiful because nature has given it eighty gorgeous pearls which seemed to form the necklace of a badly dressed women…Now that Belsh has become a little Pogradec, adorned and decorated with a new waterfront, with re-qualified architecture and many tourism objects ready to welcome visitors, the pearl necklace is shining!

A long culinary tour, wineries and extra virgin olive oil factories in the Tirana-Durres area

This tour is offered from the Regional Developmet Agency 2
Should we suggest and you accept a culinary travel-tale through Middle Albania, it is likely that those who are at least a little familiar with that part of Albania would think of the traditional dishes like ‘tava e dheut’, ‘tava e kosit’, all kinds of roasted meat, and other dishes either inherited or influenced from the Ottoman cuisine that presently has gained all of its own characteristics and is called the Middle Albania Cuisine.
We, in fact, would introduce this beautiful part of Albania to you in a completely different way – by presenting two ancient cultures in Albania: vine-growing and olive-growing.
Our country, as a typical Mediterranean country, is a well provided one for the cultivation of vine and, as the archeological findings show, it is one of the most ancient places of vine-growing. Presently, the enological market in Albania is represented by several successful wine producers like Kallmeti, Arbëri, Kokomani, Belba, Bardha, Herta, Skënderbeu, etc. who are now working together with the native viticulturists, agronomists and enologists to implement their know-how in the Albanian land.
So, as soon as you would find yourself among the endless vineries where we are about to travel to, or in any of the wineries like the wonderful Kokomani Winery, you couldn’t probably help yourself exclaiming in amazement: “What does Tuscany has more?”
Naturally Tuscany has more, but the Middle Albania has a lot too. It presently is the richest area in wineries in Albania that produce a high quality wine well confirmed by the numerous prizes awarded in national and international events. It also has an abundant amount of traditional factories that produce extra virgin olive oil. We are about to show you the best of this agro-tourist industry that entered the list of tourist itineraries right away.

Albanian Food Tours 2018 - The Best Culinary Tours from Travel Magazine

The North Albania itineraries, not only culinary but also a pilgrimage in history, in  authentic natural heritage and in the Albanian culture

This long culinary and cultural tour is offered from CABRA, a GIZ project, in collaboration with Regional Developmet Agency 1 
Prepared from: Luan Dervishej

Albania is as small as also big: most of the edges of Albania can now be easily reached and with the increase of tourists’ interest for exploration and improvement of touristic supply, the range and density of cultural and natural assets enjoyed by the visitors proves a wealth with substantial values. Nowadays, to travel from Tirana to the northernmost point Vermosh, it could be achieved within 4 hours drive. However, as a tourist we want to explore step by step the touristic attractions along the way, which would extend the travelling time up to a week.
Gastronomy degustation as part of tourism should not be left out from the exploration of nature and cultures of the destinations. This means to dive in and understand the environment, traditions, the origin of the products and the culture behind cooking. At this point, you can understand and choose what is special and authentic, an experience that you can probably find it even at a modest corner.
What you will need is: the desire to ask, to explore and enjoy the beauty; the necessary information and reference for the destinations, and a mobile phone with google map. For tourists who are not keen to drive themselves and undertake such adventures, with the exception of the road Qafë-Thore-Theth, all the other main destinations as described could be reached with common cars as the roads are well asphalted.
Beyond experiencing and enjoying the touristic journey, the itineraries offer a possibility of enrichment for the memories and the photography archive; enrichment from historical and geographical knowledge; enrichment of the house basket with local products and why not the feeling of appreciations for the country’s values.
The touristic package of the north itinerary exposes a touristic arrangement that covers a region with a historical cohesion, cultural and geographical, which is an important part of the identity and the Albanian autochthonous heritage.
Therefore, in accordance with the cultural or natural interest, the exploration of the region could be experienced as a pilgrimage in history, cultural heritage and Albanian nature.
The itineraries in the district cover all the main categories of the touristic products: natural, rural, cultural. Products of the sun and wind originated from a complex picturesque view and biodiversity. The wide range of biodiversity passes through areas and parks awarded with national values, international or regional like the reservoir of Kune – Vain, up to the protected area of Buna river, near the Natural Park of Shkoda’s lake, the regional park of Shkrel, the National Park of Theth and even up to Vermosh as the future park of the Albanian Alps. The itineraries pass through the Adriatic coast across lagoons, exotic and affirmed beaches, fields and hills areas rich with not only agro-biodiversity but also historical and cultural. On the way you get to pass by the large water streams rivers like Drini and Buna, offering picturesque mountains river valleys like Kiri, Rrjolli, Prroi i Thate, Cemi or Vermoshi. It follows with Shkodra’s lake and panoramic villages, cities with a rich historical and cultural heritage like Shkodra, considered the capital of the northern region of the country that stretches beyond the borders and the Albanian Alps, which are the symbol of mountains and heroic heritage of the Albanian landscape.
The touristic package includes different regional destinations where you can spend a whole day and one night stop. The itineraries consist in embracing cultural, historical, regional, natural, rural, agro-biodiversity and gastronomy heritage, with a dominant main theme of different specialties from the respective areas.
