Cooking classes at Conacul Grigorescu

The mansion was always a landmark of the Buzau valley region thanks to the landlord Grigorescu, who produced wine and cognac there some decades ago. The mansion was a meeting point for locals and travellers.

  • You will get a homemade welcome drink upon arrival

Testimonials

Zâna Boemă – Lifestyle Blog

Gazda noastră a fost un reprezentant al firmei Terra Carpatica, o femeie pasionată de fine cooking, cu abilități gastronomice de invidiat.” www.zanaboema.wordpress.com


CityBest – Restaurant Guide

“Terra Romana & Terra Carpatica – Întâmplătoare sau nu potrivirea de nume a celor două brand-uri (colaborarea cu firma de catering Terra Carpatica este deja una de tradiţie), cert este că asocierile vin/ mâncare au fost extrem de reuşite…Aş mai remarca paringurile senzaţionale de Cuvée Charlotte 2011 cu vânat (căprioară) cu chutney din smochine şi piure de dovleac cu nucşoară şi the best for last  – Cuvée Guy de Poix 2012 cu roast de vită, excelent înnobilat cu sos de ciocolată neagră şi reducţie din acelaşi vin.” www.citybest.ro

Răzvan Pascu – Travel Communication PR &Event Agency

“Nevertheless, the highlight of the day was a wine & food pairing, presented by a representative of Terra Carpatica. The bloggers and journalist learned how to combine certain dishes with a particular type of wine in order to make their culinary experience a memorable one.” www.travelcommunication.ro

Provin – Blog de vinuri

“Nu am uitat nici tratatia culinara din partea gazdelor (pregatita de cei de la Terra Carpatica), respectiv meniul diversificat si pe alocuri cu interpretari foarte interesante ale bucatariei traditionale. O adevarata revelatie din partea unei combinatii foarte simple. Mi-as dori ca mai multi bucatari cu pretentii de la noi, care invart farfurii pe la televizor, sa se inspire din bucataria autohtona si sa incerce sa o reinterpreteze in loc sa ne inunde cu preparate internationale si aranjamente care de care mai fanteziste. Si la bucatarie, ca si la vin, avem nevoie mai mult de substanta si autenticitate la ora actuala, decat de preluari de pe afara.” www.provin.ro

Lumea Mare – Travel Blog

“Vinurile luate deoparte pentru o aprofundare a calităţilor intrinseci sunt asociate cu preparate româneşti, în parte re-inventate de către cei la Terra Carpatica. Iar folosesc un clişeu, dar nu pot decât să mă bucur că se poate ca bucătăria românească să fie un pic regândită, să iasă din tiparele clasice,. Să păstrăm tradiţia, da, dar în acelaşi timp să experimentăm, să ne jucăm cu ingredientele şi să ne bucurăm de gusturi rafinate.” www.lumeamare.ro

Lucruri Bune – Blog de vinuri

“Licorile, care au fost analizate si ulterior la bufetul maiastru pregatit de cei de la Terra Carpatica, s-au prezentat destul de bine…” www.lucuribune.blogspot.ro

Vinul.Ro – Revistă de vinuri 

 “Ca la orice vizita la SERVE, mancarea a constituit si ea o surpriza. Anul acesta, Mihaela de Poix a ales ceva nou, mai precis serviciile de catering oferite de Terra Carpatica, o societate prin care un neamt getbeget, Thorsten Kirschner pe numele sau, vrea sa infrumuseteze Romania cu gastronomia. Iar cand omul da de mancare si de vinuri bune, normal ca se intinde la vorba.” www.vinul.ro

WineRiders – Agenție de evenimente

“Ca de obicei, felurile de mancare pregatite de Terra Carpatica au fost excelente. Întorși în grădina, am fost surprinși plăcut cu masa de prânz sub forma unei prezentări de food & wine pairing. Preparatele pregătite de Terra Carpatica au fost asociate întocmai vinurilor cramei…” www.wineriders.ro

Ecuisine – Portal culinar
