    How to Cook dishes from Romania


    Romanian cuisine is a diverse cuisine. It includes many typically Balkan recipes, and is also influenced by German cuisine, Hungarian cuisine, and Serbian cuisine.

    Some popular Romanian recipes and dishes include:
    • Ardei umpluti - Bell peppers stuffed with ground pork, rice, onion and other vegetables.

      Ardei umpluti

    • Chiftele - Breaded meatballs.

    • Cioba de burta - Tripe soup, made from the stomach of a cow with milk and various seasonings.

    • Cioba de ciocanele - A soup made from leg of pork with milk.

    • Cioba de perisoare - Meatball soup.

    • Frigarui - Smalled pieces of meat cooked on a skewer. Beef, chicken, lamb, mutton or pork may be used, and the pieces of meat on the skewer may be alternated between bacon, sausages or various vegetables such as bell peppers, mushrooms, onions or tomatoes. Frigarui are seasoned with spices such as garlic, laurel, and marjoram, pepper, and rosemary.

    • Mamaliga - Cornmeal mush made from yellow maize, similar to Italian cuisine's polenta.

      Mamaliga

    • Mititei - Grilled rolls made from beef mixed with mutton or pork.

    • Papricas - A meat stew flavored with paprika, similar to Hungarian cuisine's pörkölt.

    • Rasol - Boiled meat, potatoes and vegetables. If chicken is used for the meat, the whole chicken is typically is cut into pieces and used, whereas if pork is used, the pig's leg is used. It is item with a spicy garlic sauce known as mujdei or horseradish.

    • Salata de boeuf - A salad made from chopped beef and root vegetables in mayonnaise. It is eaten garnished with pickled vegetables.

    • Salata de vinete - A salad made from chopped grill eggplants with chopped onions and sunflower oil. Mayonnaise, or crushed garlic and pepper powder may be added.

    • Sarmale - Rolls of cabbage stuffed with ground meat, rice and onions. These rolls are often eaten on Christmas Eve and at Easter.

    • Snitel - Pork tenderloin stuffed with cheese and ham, covered with breadcrumbs and fried. It is the Romanian version of Austrian cuisine's Wiener schnitzel. Sometimes other meats such as beef, chicken or pork may be used, a fast-food version eaten in a sandwich is also popular, and in Western Romania the dish is made from two layers of meat with mushrooms between them.

    • Zacusca - A vegetable spread made from cooked eggplant, beans, red peppers and chopped onion. It is typically matured for several months before eating, but once the jar is opened must be eaten within a few days. Zacusca is typically spread on to bread.

    Product Description:
    We think of the smells and tastes of our childhood and say, "Grandma made it best." This nostalgic experience is part of our personal history, while the process of cooking maps the cultural history of a nation. Romanian cooking is therefore, at its core, the most eclectic, varied and complex cooking found it Eastern Europe because of its national history. Romanian cooking encompasses the taste of the Mediterranean because of the Ottoman occupation and the Slavic and Austro-Hungarian influences due to its geographical proximity to Russia and Hungary. With such culinary influences from South, East and West, the richness of the food does not come from the hearty ingredients, but from the history of occupation, integration and symbiosis with its surrounding regions. Romanian cuisine is not simply the amalgamation or duplication of these nation's dishes, but has a flavor all its own. The richness and variety of tastes found in uniquely Romanian food satisfy not only the appetite but the soul as well. Romanian dishes are considered comfort foods because of their complex and savory character. The rich ingredients, local to the Romanian heartland, come together to create the seductive flavors that warm the body and nourish the heart. We hope that this cookbook will be a treasure for you and your family as you explore all that the nation has to offer and share the recipes with your loved ones.
