The Traditional Cuisine of Romania

Scoala Gimnaziala nr.1
Saveni
Romania 2
Romania has a rich
and varied cuisine,
with Turkish,
Serbian, German,
Bulgarian and
Hungarian
influences.
Despite this blend of
traditions and
cultures, Romanian
cuisine has its
strong character.
The hospitality of the
Romanians is mainly
translated into their
cuisine.
A guest will be happily
served with delicious
dishes, which are full
of flavour!
Let’s see some of the
most common ones!
The soups
Usually, Romanians prefer
sour soups, named
‘ciorbă ’.
These may be meat and
vegetable soups, or fish
soups, all of them being
soured with lemon or
sauerkraut juice,
vinegar, or the
traditional ‘borş ’.
Meat dishes

There is a wide variety of
meat dishes, made of
pork, beef, poultry, or
fish. In some areas,
people also eat venison.
Some of the meat dishes
are:
- cârnaţi - a garlicky
sausage
- pârjoale- a type of
meatball covered with a
flour or breadcrumb
crust
Meat dishes
- mititei (mici) - grilled
minced-meat rolls

- tobă - sausage (usually
pig's stomach, stuffed
with pork jelly, liver,
and skin)
Meat dishes
- tochitură - a
Romanian-style
stew
- sarmale - minced
meat with rice,
wrapped in pickled
cabbage or vine
leaves.
Fish dishes
Fish makes an exquisite
dish, and here are
some examples:
- salata de icre - roe
salad with onion
- saramură de crap carp in brine
- ghiveci cu peşte vegetable stew with
fish.
Vegetable dishes
Vegetables are cooked in
many ways, and the
results are always
excellent!
Some of these dishes are:
- ardei umpluţi - stuffed
bell peppers
- dovlecei umpluţi stuffed zucchini
Vegetable dishes
- ghiveci - vegetable
stew
- mămăligă - cornmeal
mush, also known as
Romanian-style polenta
- pilaf - rice, vegetables,
and pieces of meat.
Salads

In summer, Romanians prefer
fresh vegetable salads, like:
- tomato salad, with cucumber
and onion
- salată de vinete - eggplant
salad, with eggplant, onion, oil
and mayonnaise.
In winter, we like to eat pickles:
- castraveţi muraţi - pickled
small cucumbers
- gogonele - pickled green
tomatoes
- salată de murături - a
combination of pickled
vegetables.
Cheese
There are many varieties
of cheeses, made from
cow’s or sheep’s milk.
Some of them are:
- caş - a semi-soft fresh
white cheese, unsalted
or lightly salted
-

caşcaval - a semi-hard
cheese made from
sheep's or cow's milk

- telemea - cow's or
sheep's milk white
cheese, similar to feta.
Desserts
Romanians have a sweet tooth.
Our grandmothers prepare a
lot of:
- cozonac - a kind of Stollen
made with leavened dough,
poppy seeds, nuts, or Turkish
delight
- mucenici - sweet cookies
(shaped like "8", made of
boiled or baked dough, with
walnuts, sugar or honey, eaten
on 9th March)
- papanaşi - Romanian doughnuts.
Desserts
Modern desserts include:
- clătite – pancakes
- turtă dulce – gingerbread
- chec - coffee cake
- şarlotă - a custard made with
milk, eggs, sugar, whipped
cream, gelatin, fruits, and lady
fingers
- cremă de zahăr ars – crème
brulee.
Drinks
Romania has always been
known for its wines and
beer. Also, Romanians
enjoy:
- ţuică, pălincă or rachiu, a
brandy made of fruit,
mainly plums.
Other drinks include
liquers made of
- blueberries – afinată
- sour cherries – vişinată
- raspberries – zmeurată.
Special dishes for special holidays
The two most important holidays for the
Romanians are Christmas and Easter.
And we like to eat like kings on these
occasions.
So, we prepare dishes like the following.
Special dishes for Christmas
In the rural regions, a pig is
sacrificed before
Christmas. The foods made
from that pig are:
- cârnaţi
- caltaboş – sausage made of
liver
- tobă
- tochitură
- piftie – the tail, feet and
ears of the pig, spiced with
garlic and served in aspic.
For the sweet part of the
meal, women prepare
cozonac.
Special dishes for Easter

The star of the Easter meal
is lamb. And it is prepared
in various ways:
- borş de miel - lamb sour
soup
- drob de miel – a Romanianstyle lamb haggis made of
minced offal (heart, liver,
lungs) with spices.
The Easter cake is pască, a
pie made of yeast dough
with a sweet cottage
cheese filling.
Thank you for watching!
We hope you enjoyed our culinary
feast!
