ROMANIAN COOKERY……….. Offered to all, with love, by

Secondary School Vadeni SOUPS AND TCHORBA We, the Romanians, enjoy the benefits of a unique gastronomically blend: we have taken over the vegetable soups and added further influences to them: meat balls from the Turks, lettuce from Austrians, dry beans with smoked meat from the Germans (via Polish meadiation).We added pork meat to our soups during the Turkish reign, because they had taken away our cattle as tribute, and then, during the Austrian rule, in Transylvania, we added tarragon (a German cooking habit).We prepared lamb borsh locally, as we used to be shepherds. Lentil soup is an Arabian import, that came to us also through the Turks.The other notes and shades – oil, vinegar, sour cream, borsh itself, depend on regional gastronomy use and practice.


MEAT BALLS TCHORBA

Ingredients: ●400 g veal marrow bones, ●300g minced beef, ●1 l wheat borsh, ●2 tablespoons rice, ●1 carrot, coarsely grated, ●1 parnsnip, coarsely grated, ●1 cup celery leaves, chopped, ●2 onions, finely chopped, ●1 bell pepper, chopped, ●1 big tomato, coarsely cut, ●1 cup fresh chopped lovage leaves, ●1 cup fresh chopped dill, ●1 cup fresh chopped parsley, ●salt, ● pepper. Preparation: Boil bones in salted water about one hour together with celery leaves and one chopped onion, and then remove bones from pot. Mix meat with remaining onion, rice, half of dill and parsley, salt and pepper. Mold mixture into balls and introduce them into the boiling bone soup. Add remaining vegetables into the soup. Boil for about 30-40 minutes. When the meat is tender, add borsh and let them boil for another 1-2 minutes. Finally, sprinkle with lovage, remaining dill and parsley. Serve hot. You can also add sour cream when serving. Tip: lovage is a must when using borsh. Never boil borsh more than 1-2 minutes - long boiling time will ruin its special flavor.


MAIN COURSES Here, too, we can witness the same show.Romanian meals are subject to plenty odd influences. Meat balls, meat rolls in cabbage leaves, ,,mititei,, (small, grilled forcemeat sausages), moussaka and vegetable ragout, all of them being the legacy we have received from the Turks, Greeks or Bulgarians from the area of Arabian cooking.Certainly, all these different dishes show local influences too (tarragon, sour cream, cabbage, vine leaves, etc). We can ascertain an Austrian import too, originating, actually, in French cooking: this dish is chicken with sour cream from Bucovina, that stressed its local origins by simply replacing the French white sauce with plain sour cream. The only genuine Dacian dish is the ,,bulz,,(polenta chunk with cheese) , which has its own special story: in ancient times, in the days of our ancestors, the dish used to be made of millet and was cooked in live brand, just as it is nowadays. When the Turks took our cereals as a tribute, the Romanians learned to eat ,, cucuruz,, (as maize was called originally, when it arrived in this area under the name of ,, granturco,,, bought from the Genovese merchants).That`s where polenta originates and while neither wheat or millet were available, cheese began to be wrapped in a chunk of corn flour. Originally, it was cooked on live brand and did not contain any butter or sour cream just cheese and nothing else.


SOUR CABBAGE ROLLS

Ingredients:●1 medium brine pickled cabbage,●250 g minced pork,●250 g minced beef, ●200g smoked bacon,●300g smoked spare ribs,●1 cup tomato juice,●250 ml dry white wine,●2 teaspoons dry thyme,●2 teaspoons of dry dill deds,●2 teaspoons whole black pepper,●2 teaspoons of rice, washed, ●ground black pepper.

Preparation: Separate and wash the cabbage leaves in warm water if they are too salty; cut the thick base of the stalks. Depending on its size, cut each leaf in 2-4 parts, no bigger than your hand. Mix well meats, onion, rice, some ground pepper, and ½ teaspoon thyme. Add only a small amount of salt. Place 2 teaspoons of meat mixture on each cabbage piece, and then roll. Push inside with your finger the ends of each roll, to prevent meat getting out. Finely chop the remaining cabbage leaves. Cover the bottom of a pan with some of the chopped cabbage, the smoked spare ribs, whole black pepper, and dill seeds. Put cabbage rolls together in the pan, spread thyme and slices of smoked bacon between them. Cover with chopped cabage. Pour the tomato juice, the wine and enough water to cover well the cabbage. Bake in preheated oven until they are tender and slightly brown. Tip: use a Roman covered clay pot instead of usual pan – it keeps all flavors. Serve it with fresh hot chilly peppers and maize mash. It goes also well served with some sour cream on top.


SWEETS Native Romanian desserts are many and savory.Due to one and the same reason: the meeting between Oriental cooking (probably the most devilish, when it comes to sweets) and French cuisine, brought by the Frenchified youth to the Rmanian Principalities in the mid – 19th century, and also with Austian cookery (a particular blend of relatively poor Anglo – Saxon influences with the same Oriental, Italian and French cooking).You surely understand the result of such historically repeated influences, exposed to mutual corrections.


CHEESE DONUTS WITH SOUR CREAM Ingredients:●200g cottage cheese,●200g wheat flour, sifted, ●2 eggs, beaten,●50g sugar,●2 g baking soda, ●50 g semolina, ●oil for deep frying, ●salt, vanilla, grated lemon peel.

Preparation: Thoroughly mix cheese, flour, eggs, sugar, baking soda, lemon peel, vanilla, semolina and salt. Form donuts, with a hole in the middle made with your finger. Deep fry donuts in hot oil, until golden on both sides. Spread with some powdered sugar, and serve them hot, with sour cream and jam. Tip: sour cherry jam is the best choice.


TRADITIONAL RECIPES

PETROSANI/ROMANIA

SOUR SOUP WITH BORSCHT is a Romanian traditional soup

enjoyed by Romanians every day.Traditionally borscht is added to make the soup sour, which is fermented wheat bran. Ingredients: chicken or beef 3-4 potatoes 1 celery 1 carrot 1 parsley root 1 onion 1 Liter of Borscht (prepared as explained in my first post) 1 Liter of water some green (parsley leafs, celery leafs, dill, garden orache) salt Clean the vegetables, cut them in small pieces (except the potatoes) and put them in a pot with hot water and a little salt, together with the meat. Let them boil on a small fire. When the vegetables and meat are half boiled put over the potatoes peeled and cut in pieces. Let them continue to boil on small fire. When they are almost ready (boiled) put the green cut in small pieces. Let everything boil a little longer. Put some Borscht to give the soar taste (as much as you like, try it to see if it is to soar) and let everything boil a little more. La. At the table you can serve it with some sour cream. Enjoy!


Sweet Bread Dough Recipe: for 2 loaves 4-5 cups bread flour 1 cup milk 3 eggs 2 1/2 tsps instant yeast 3/4 cupsbutter* 3/4 cup sugar pinch of salt, can use a little more to taste lemon/orange peel rum/vanilla extract * I like to use salted butter

Additional: ~1 beaten egg (for brushing the top of the loaves)

Directions: 1. Prepare your loaf pans by buttering and placing a piece of buttered parchment paper at the bottom to ensure that the loaf will not stick in the final baking stage. 2. In a saucepan, heat milk, butter and sugar. 3. Let cool till just warm. 4. Add beaten eggs and blend to incorporate. Add flavorings lemon/orange peel, rum/vanilla. 5. In bowl, add 2 cups flour and instant yeast. Mix to incorporate the yeast into the flour. Add the wet ingredients and knead . 6. Add rest of flour and knead . Cover with plastic wrap and let rise till almost doubled... in a warm environment. 7. Cut the dough in half to yield two equal parts. 8. Roll one part into a large rectangle( 11x14 approximate) and spread nut filling to within 1/2 inch of the edge. 9. Roll dough and braid the dough. 10. Let rise in a warm oven till the dough reaches the top of the pan. Bake until nicely golden brown all over.


COZONAC is a nut filled cake made on special ocasions, especially Easter or Christmas. It is not an easy recipe.

Nut Filling: for 2 loaves You will need: about 2 1/2 cups nuts 1 cup whole milk 3/4 cup sugar 1/4 cup rum/ vanilla 2 tsp orange peel 1/4 cup cocoa

Directions: 1. In a saucepan, melt sugar in milk 2. Add walnuts and keep stirring every so often... until thickened (10-15 minutes) 3. Add cocoa and flavorings. Cook some more to the point that the filling is paste-like. (I think that if the filling is too wet it can cause quite a bit if steam in the final baking stage...causing the cozonac to fall). 4. Set aside to cool....it should thicken even further as it sits.


ROMANIAN TOCHITURA WITH POLENTA

This is one of our homeland's most traditional dishes. Not very light but certainly delicious and easy to make gredients (serves 2 very very hungry people):           

200 g of corn maize 600 ml of water some salt a dash of freshly ground pepper 1 teaspoon sweet paprika 100-150 g thin, crispy and smoked sausages (we used some made after a Tirol recipe) 200 g salted, hard, white cheese (ours was 45% fat) 200 g turkey meat (but any kind of meat or livers will do) some olive oil (or some other cooking oil or grease) 2 eggs about 100 g of cream

Heat the water in a pot with a sprinkle of salt in it. When it starts to boil, add the corn maize very gradually and stirring Make sure it's evenly spread through the water. Let it boil on medium intensity for about 2025 minutes, making sure you stir and check it every 5 minutes. Also, you may want to put a lid on the pot, not because it helps with the making of the polenta, but because it has a habit of popping bubbles of very hot corn maize around it and you may get a burn if you stay too close to it and it's not covered. Next, cut the sausages into little piece


When you're done, the polenta should be about ready and it should look like this:

If it's done, put it aside the flame and place the lid back on the pot to keep it warm until you finish the rest. Next, cut the meat into fine square pieces, immediately sprinkle a pinch of salt, the pepper and half the paprika on them. Roast the meat for 4-5 minutes .Sprinkle the rest of the paprika on the meat and sausages and let them roast for another 4-5 minutes. In the meantime, cut the salty cheese into bits, just like you did with the meat and sausages. ut the cheese bits on top of the polenta, like this:

Put the meat and sausage pieces next to the polenta. Fry the eggs, pour the cream over the cheese in the plates. Put each egg on top of each plate.

KAMA Kama (in Estonian) or talkkuna (in Finnish) is a traditional Estonian and Finnish finely milled flour mixture. The kama or talkkuna powder is a mixture of roasted barley, rye, oat and pea flour. The oat flour may be completely replaced by wheat flour, or kibbled black beans may be added to the mixture. Historically kama was a non-perishable, easy to carry food that could be quickly fashioned into a stomach-filling snack by rolling it into butter or lard; it didn't require baking, as it was already roasted. Nowadays it is used for making some desserts. It is mostly enjoyed for breakfast mixed with milk, buttermilk or kefir as mush. It is frequently sweetened with sugar and especially with blueberry, more rarely with other fruits or honey or served unsweetened. It is also used for milk or sour desserts, together with the forest berries typical in Estonia and Finland. Kama can be bought as a souvenir in Estonia. It is one of the most distinctive national foods of Estonia. Kama is easy to prepare: Pour into cups buttermilk. Add 1 tablespoon to each cup of flour and 1 teaspoon of KAMA wheat bran and mix. Pour berries and honey in a bowl and press with a fork smashed. Distribution of the resulting mixture of two cups away.
