The cuisine of Bansko is unique for the borders of the town. The answer to that is in the development of Bansko as a town of merchants in the 18th century. While traveling to Austro-Hungarian Empire, Italy and Germany with their caravan, the tradesman of Bansko were bringing back influences and inspiration.
Thanks to the ladies of the town, who had to run the household throughout the year, specific dishes were prepared in Bansko and nowhere else. Nowadays those recipes are part of the traditional Bulgarian cuisine.
