A week of food and walking in Albania

Food is a science and a hobby itself. It doesn’t matter where you eat, be it a fancy restaurant or a cheap one with local food the thing that matters is the quality of the food and the quantity. I know that many countries are a fan of small amounts of food on the plate, but in Albania is vice-versa.  Albanian people respect all types of food so they rarely throw food away.

Meanwhile, food time is quality time is because it brings people together.  That is why Albania is a family orientated country because people spend at least one meal per day gathering together as a family. Moreover, Albanian food is all about quality and quantity. While the cuisine is Mediterranean and most of the products are ecological as they are grown in the villages nearby.
