When I was in Romania in 1985, that was 4 years before the Revolution, I remember my family and I were complaining about having schnitzel every evening at the restaurant at the hotel.
A Romanian friend said later to me : “You should’ve been happy having that every day, we had meat 4 times per year in those days. For Easter , on the National Day the 23rd of August, at Christmas and when the president had his birthday”.
Today, food in Romania is very Mediterranean inspired. Fruits and vegs are everywhere. Finding Honey, nuts and cheese at a Romanian market is like going to a French equivalent. Inviting and abundant.
I would become a vegetarian if I lived there…
Forget about apples : A chili a day keeps the doctor away…
One of a kind. Yes, Romania is that. Unexplored. In Europe. Go see it, before everyone else does !
Garlic…goes with…almost anything ! Super healthy .
Chocolate cake sold at the Market in the Old Town. MONDIEU, are they good with sweet things!!!
If ever invited to a Romanian home to eat….say YES!!!! Homemade food is great ! This is sarmale.
SARMALE, one of my Romanian favourites : Minced meat and rice wrapped in cabbage or wine leaves.
Lovely fresh bread in the morning from a corner bakery in Bucharest.
