The plov cooking tour is a truly complete cultural experience where you will have the chance to shop for ingredients, cook and taste a traditional plov. The tour starts with a little stroll through the local markets to shop for all the ingredients needed to prepare the dish. Tourists and the guide then will move on to a local family house where they will have the chance to help in the making of the plov. Nevertheless, the best part of this experience is sharing the meal with the group!
