Famous Romanian Food - Love At First Sight

Jan 29, 2008
Romanians really enjoy eating. They like to have a full table with every type of goodies, especially for the holidays. Nowadays, nutritionists recommend us to eat healthy food, meaning many raw vegetables and fruits, which are specific to the area where we live and according to the ongoing season.

Romanians know what healthy food means, but that does not mean they give up their famous food. Romanians have special traditional food. As in every country, there are different regions with different original famous specific food.

For example, in Transylvania, to prepare the traditional Sunday meal, housewives get a fat chicken from the household, pick the feathers and cook a noodle soup, but not any type of noodles. They make those noodles, as well as the rest of the food at home. That soup is part of the Romanian famous food list.

There are some types of famous Romanian foods, which have been borrowed from the Austrians, for example the schnitzel prepared with fried potatoes. That specialty is cooked after coming back from church, because Romanians have a tradition in this field too, as many others do. They always go to church on Sunday. As a proof, the schnitzel ritual is still kept today all over Transylvania. Of course, this all comes with good quality wine and homemade "palinca" (a strong beverage made of grapes or prunes).

For dessert, women usually bake special cookies and all sort of pies. The most famous of them are the pies and the cookies made with nuts cream or vanilla, baked, of course, in the oven of the wood stove. Romanians also have a tradition in baking homemade bread in a special earth made oven.

That is one of the traditional famous Romanian food specialties. The huge fluffy bread was, and still is made with potatoes and wheat flour, and all the ingredients used for baking it are natural. Everybody should taste this type of bread, because it is very tasty, the crust is very crunchy and the taste is special.

Whether there are special original traditional famous Romanian food specialties, or some borrowed influences, the variety of the cooking department is huge. No matter what we are talking about, all the results can be categorized as tasty.

Many people choose their food today being influenced by the colours of the wrappings or the colour of the food itself. Unfortunately, there are generations, which do not know the taste of a garden grown tomato, or the taste of a chicken grown up on corn.

Romanians can still afford to be conservative about the culinary art. Of course, not all of the Romanians cook at home and they do not always eat traditional famous food. There are people, who have got used to eating ready-made food, and they just heat it in the microwave oven.

However, the traditional world famous Romanian food is something that each individual should try. It is impossible not to like the famous "sarmale", (cabbage rolls), or the different soups and "ciorba", (broth), cooked according to special Romanian recipes.
