Traditional Products from Sibiu County

Cheeses are, by excellence, part of this region’s culinary and cultural tradition and its diversity is given by its high pastures and specific production techniques. In the alpine pastures of Mărginimea Sibiului the locals continue the ancestral tradition of telemea cheese, sour milk, burduf cheese, kneaded cheese or urda. If in the 18th and 19th centuries the shepherds would travel all to way to Crimea during the transhumance periods, today some of them have settled mainly in Banat and Dobrogea and others still practice the local shepherding at the

Traditional Products from Sibiu County

To get through the frosty mountain winters, shepherds from Sibiu eat a lot of proteins and fat accompanied by “just a tiny bit of strong plum brandy”; this is a widespread habit in our county where the best “vegetable” will always be the pork. The killing of the pig takes place during the ritual of St. Ignatius on December 20th. The sacrifice strictly follows a whole set of customs and it ends with a thanksgiving dinner called “the pig’s funeral feast”.


Meat delicacies

Traditional Products from Sibiu County

Did you know?

Nothing is thrown away from the pig and the housewives skilfully prepare meat delicacies made after century-old recipes: liver sausages, sausages, headcheese, meat jelly, deepfried lard, lard-preserved meat, salted pork rinds or meat jelly seasoned with thyme, pepper, tarragon, coriander, allspice and paprika for they say these spices are all perfect for pork meat. An exquisite delicacy is well smoked, salt-cured lard. The Saxons used to keep it in the church’s steeple. Villagers from Mărginimea smoke it with beech wood smoke and then hang it in the pantry. The lamb haggis with basil and rosemary or the smoke-dried mutton with garlic sauce are also constantly present on the villagers’ table. If you go to a sheepfold you will feel the smell of the mutton stew from a long distance.

• The fortified churches from around Sibiu still take pride in their Lard Steeple. Back in the old days, each Saxon family would keep their lard in the tower throughout the year as it was chilly and windy even in summer; the lard chunks were properly marked, to make sure no one would dare steal from their neighbour’s lard. • A typical local delicacy is chisătura – a paste of fi ne cut lard mixed with parsley and onion. Th is is the shepherds’ sandwich; spread on large slices of bread whose crust was beaten off, it just makes your mouth water. • The pâté from Sibiu has a tradition of over 90 years. Besides the pâté tins made in Sibiu and sold in supermarkets, the local housewives also prepare lebar which is a paste made of pork or chicken liver.

Traditional Products from Sibiu County

For many of us the taste of country bread baked on a wooden fire has remained just a nice childhood memory. However, in the region of Sibiu there still are many households where women wake up before dawn to put the dough in the oven. The locals of Sibiu prefer the sweet, rich taste of the potatoes bread which can be kept for several weeks. Next to the traditional white potatoes bread, people also bake linseeds, pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds breads.

Did you know? • Bread is believed to be a sacred element and people show a mystical respect towards it.

Transylvania is “the land of breads as big as a cart wheel” and naturally Sibiu lives up to this reputation. Bakers bake big, round breads of up to one kilogram, to have enough for everybody. When taken out of the oven, the bread crust is coal black so you don’t really feel like eating it. But while still hot, the baker hurries to beat it on all sides and… what a wonder: the burnt crust falls off and the bread remains nice and brown, just perfect for breakfast. To discover the secrets of traditional bakeries, visit the Old Mill from Hosman (www.moara-veche.ro).

• In Transylvania it is considered a sin to throw away any leftover bread or breadcrumbs. The customs of drawing an imaginary cross on the bread before cutting it and putting it into a white towel are symbols of purity and are believed to keep the evil away. • At Galeş you may still find a water mill running. • At Şura Mică, at no. 99 on Principală St. they sell sponge cake “by the meter” prepared after a Saxon recipe.

The people of Sibiu are very hardworking people with a long tradition of crop growing both in the fields and in their home garden. They divide their gardens in two: on one side they plant cereals, on the other vegetables and then they rotate the crops. In villagers’ gardens one will always find potatoes, beans, cabbage, cauliflower, carrots, bell peppers, zucchinis, tomatoes, cucumbers, turnips, pumpkins but also flavoured herbs such as dill, lovage, mint, orache, parsley, tarragon or wild garlic.

sylvanian pork soup is served with a bit of vinegar-preserved tarragon and the wild garlic is mostly used by the women from Mărginimea Sibiului. Besides the vegetables, in the local gardens you will also find fruits: strawberries, black, red and white currants, raspberries and rhubarb. Every household has its own orchard with various assortments of apples, pears, plums, quinces, cherries, sour cherries, cherry plums and walnuts and on the village streets in front of their houses people plant plum and pear trees. From early spring to late autumn, the markets of Sibiu are full of fresh and tasty fruits and vegetables. name Novac Constantin

From August to October the women of Sibiu are as busy as bees preparing preserves for the winter. Big, smartly decorated jars struggle to find their place on the pantry shelves. In winter time, all meals are accompanied by preserved vegetables which are said to ease digestion, provide vitamins and give extra flavour to all dishes. Imagine a traditional pork roast with peasant style potatoes accompanied by a platter of pickled bell peppers, cucumbers, cauliflowers, green tomatoes or cabbage seasoned with tarragon or a bit of dill‌ a genuine feast of colours and flavours. The pantry shelves are stacked with jars of vegetable spread, horseradish paste or hot peppers which go perfectly with a bowl of beef soup. Nothing less can be said of jams and marmalades.

• The hip berry jam (Hetschenpetsch) was initially made by the Saxons living in the region of Sibiu. To prepare the actual jam, you need a hip berry paste which you get by separating the fruit from the seeds and then boiling it; the resulted paste is then passed through a sieve and baked in traditional ovens.

Non-alcoholic beverages Thanks to the terraced, sunny hills and to the rich soil the people of the region of Sibiu could grow nice orchards, especially apple and plum orchards in several areas of the county. The natural apple juice from Slimnic and Mălâncrav is largely known for its nutritional values. Try also the natural berries syrups, the delicious fir-tree buds syrup or the elder-flower soft drink known as socata, sweetened with honey and prepared after ancient recipes. The locals still use various infused medicinal plants. If you ask for an herbal tea you will receive an energizing infusion of St. John’s wort, lime and mint with healing properties.

Alcoholic beverages Fruits are also used to prepare alcoholic drinks. A rich table is not complete without some Tălmaciu or Sadu brandy drunk as appetizers. The liquors made of raspberries, blueberries or sour cherries are tasty, strong flavoured drinks with healing properties if consumed moderately; they are said to heal illnesses of the intestines or of the stomach.
