A rich collection of authentic Romanian recipes, now in a handy bilingual format – brilliant idea!
Easy to follow, carefully detailed, traditional recipes for zacuscă, sarmale, mamaligă, chiftele, mititei, colivă, placinte, cozonac, etc. – the much beloved dishes I grew up with; lots of rustic, healthy, vegetable based recipes as well as more sophisticated meat dishes or fancy pastries; I liked that it includes estimated cooking time and specifies the traditional herbs used in flavoring Romanian dishes (ex. lovage ); a well received gift to my English speaking kids now able to continue the family tradition on their own .
A must for anyone interested in or curious about Romanian cuisine and culture.
