Balkan Gastro-Cultural Event
Music Concept by Radio Kibuț
Tasting of Balkan dishes accompanied by fine beverages


Awarded by Gault&Millau, having served the King of England, and us at La Căpițe, Musiu, or Kibuț, Alina Săftulescu descends from the mountains with a bag full of delicacies, from her own pantry or gathered from small local producers and farmers. She comes to Taifas to celebrate Balkan gastronomy as a common cultural heritage.

Alina Săftulescu is the Creative Director @Kibuț/Gărâna.

A graduate of the Faculty of Industrial Chemistry and the Faculty of Arts and Design in Timișoara, Alina Săftulescu permanently left Timișoara, her birthplace, to live peacefully in the mountains, in Gărâna, alongside her husband. She left behind several projects in her hometown (The Note, River Deck, La Căpițe, Musiu), as well as cultural events (Joie de Vivre Festival, exhibitions, concerts, curatorship projects) to open a gastronomic and cultural hub, Kibuț, in Gărâna, where she fulfills and intertwines her two great passions: art and gastronomy.
