Romanian Cuisine is little known in most of the Western world, so it was nice to see Gabriel Chirita's marvelous Romanian Food : Best recipes. The book is reasonably well laid out, has an interactive Table of Contents and even includes pictures for most recipes. Most unfortunately, however, there is not a single thing in the book that is unique.

All of the introduction, literally word for word, can be read at a half-dozen or more sites online. Grandma read it at a site called Romanian Monasteries. You can see for yourself by pasting this line, including the quotation marks, into your favorite search engine.

"Beekeeping has always been one of the traditional occupations in Romania, and the products (honey, wax, honeycombs) are also sold on the market."

(Chirita, Gabriel (2012-01-02). Romanian Food : Best recipes (Kindle Locations 23-24). . Kindle Edition.)

Grandma followed a similar procedure with a unique line from Gabriel's Polenta recipe: "Mamaliguta (better known by it's Italian name Polenta) is as old as time in the Romanian culinary history."

(Chirita, Gabriel (2012-01-02). Romanian Food : Best recipes (Kindle Location 547). . Kindle Edition.)

That search led to the discovery of many of the recipes included in this book at a blog called Romanian Cuisine, authored by a student named Flo who lives in Romania. The lovely pictures that accompany the recipes are Flo's too.

Just so there can be no dispute, Grandma has taken screenshots of several recipes as they appear both on Flo's blog and in Gabriel's book and has uploaded them here. You'll find them directly under the large cover illustration in the upper left corner of the page.

Two thumbs down! Definitely NOT recommended!

The recipes are exactly how we used to make them in Romania. I've bought 'traditional Romanian cooking' book and those recipes were not as authentic. Please don't post a review that does not pertain to the quality of the recipes. If you have issues with the copyright then contact the publisher! This book was made to benefit people that want to replicate Romanian home cooking. You can tell the person spent a good amount of time putting this together and for $3 it's MORE than a keeper!!

This fascinating book presents a not widely known cuisine - that of Romania. While many foodies know and love mamaliga, not many have tried it together with nettles (the gardener's revenge!) - an amazing combination. Then there's the soup made with tripe, another now little used ingredient that was once common in tough times, and surely deserves a revival. The Little Meatballs recipes reveals some of the influences on food in Romania, a country that so many armies and peoples trekked through: the spices used are savory, allspice, coriander , cumin, and star anise, reflecting all those influences. Recommended for anyone in search of a very different and delicious European kitchen.
