The people of Bucovina are truly passionate about food. Their cooking tradition has been influenced in the past centuries not only by the local ethnic minorities, but also by the Orthodox heritage. Vegetable sour soups and hot pepper (borş cu ardei iute), nests of meat stuffed cabbage rolls and polenta (sarmale cu mămăligă) and tinted trout (păstrăv la baiţ), all topped with organic sour cream. The local housewives cooking techniques can only be matched by monastery kitchens where exquisite fasting or vegetarian meals are prepared. These are entirely homemade, including the bread. Nonetheless, the masterpiece of cuisine is by far the freshly puffy and delightful poale-n brâu, cottage cheese and raisins filled pie.
Every dish is thoroughly matched with the finest Moldavian wines, from the rich flavored farmer harvest to the award-winning boutique wines.
