Overview

Galia Sperber's earliest memories of her Romanian grandmother's home are of little chocolate treats made with rum in pretty cupcake holders, and of flaky white fish in a mouth-watering tomato sauce. These recipes and more are included in this fascinating look into this richly blended cuisine.

Family favorites demonstrate the diverse influences: polenta is a staple in Romanian cooking, including the delicious baked snack ours ("bear"). From the country's history as part of the Ottoman Empire, coffee, especially Turkish coffee, is a much-loved beverage in Romania, but it is also an important ingredient in other recipes, such as the Coffee Mold, great for dessert. Home cooks are sure to find fresh and interesting versions of old favorites, and to enjoy trying new dishes from this little-known cuisine to add exciting variety to meals.

    Easy to follow delicious recipes.

    This new Romanian cookbook not only gives an insite into what made the country's cuisine what it is today, but is full of mouthwatering recipes. There is so much to choose from, whether you're looking for a starter, a meat or fish dish, a different soup to try, or something original for dessert. I had no idea Romanian cooking was so delicious and I recommend this book to anyone looking for inspiration in the kitchen.
