Romanian writer Irina Georgescu introduces her first book, Carpathia,

Food from the Heart of Romania.

FOOD

REPORT

I

ood l Irina Georgescu is a food

writer whose work draws on

her Eastern European heritage.

It is her love of talking about

Romanian culinary traditions

that made her pursue her dream and

write about this heritage and the cooking

inspired by her mother and grandmother

her life in the busy capital city Bucharest

and by her constant explorations into the

history and food of her country. While

keeping close to the traditional ways

of cooking, she also brings her own

interpretation to these dishes.

She says, "I am fascinated by the

flavours and textures of Romanian cuisine

and I am excited to write and share its

secrets with the world. My dream is to

build a life around food, discovering new

flavours and changing perceptions with

the help of recipes, photography and

travel stories. The recipes are my own,

inspired by my mother, my family and

Romania's culinary heritage."

Romania is a cultural melting pot, its

character and dishes rooted in a culture

living at the crossroads of eastern and

western traditions, from Greek, Turkish

and Slavic in the south and east and

Austrian, Hungarian and Saxon in the

north and west.

Carpathia, Georgescu's first

cookbook, aims to introduce readers

to Romania's unique and bold cuisine,

bringing the country to life with stunning

photography and recipes. It's a culinary

journey to the heart of the country,

exploring its history, traditions and food,

one dish at a time featuring small plates,

starters, salads, breads and street

food bakes, borş and ciorbş (broths)

as well as traditional main courses and

desserts. Also included are classic

pickles, preserves, compotes and drinks.

On the journey Georgescu champions

ingredients at the heart of Romanian

cooking, many of which will be familiar

-- apples, cheese, garlic, pork, pickles,

polenta, pork, wine and yoghurt.

Born in Bucharest and now living in

the UK, keep up with Georgescu with her
