It's a mine of information and a beautiful read--a wonderful and thrilling way of discovering Romania. --Claudia Roden, author of The New Book of Middle Eastern Food
. . . dishes like creamy cauliflower soup, sour cream-enriched mamaliga (the Romanian polenta), lamb stewed in sauerkraut juice and scallions, mititei (exactly like the ones I tasted so long ago in Bucharest) are simple and appealing . . . Klepper paints a pretty picture of his native country's culinary possibilities. --Colman Andrews, SAVEUR magazine
A brilliant cultural and culinary history...a collection of recipes to be treasured, tested, and enjoyed. --George Lang, Restauranteur, former owner Cafe des Artistes
