Bulgarian Recipes


People from overseas are not always aware of the foods that Bulgaria has to offer. Bulgarian cuisine is a unique mix of Slavic traditions combined with influences from Greek cuisine and Turkish cuisine.

Popular Bulgarian dishes include:
  • Kiselo Mlyako - Yoghurt

  • Tarator - A cold (often served with ice) soup made from yoghurt, cucumbers, nuts, vegetable oil and water, and flavored with garlic and dill.

  • Shkembe chorba - A soup made from the stomach lining of cattle, mixed with milk, and seasoned with vinegar, garlic, and chili. The soup is sometimes claimed to be a hangover cure.

  • Elenski but - Dry-cured ham from the town of Elena in northern Bulgaria.

  • Soujouk - A spicy sausage made from ground beef. Soujouk is cooked in its own fat (without oil) and sometimes eaten for breakfast.

  • Lukanka - A spicy sausage made from pork or veal, traditionally in a dried cow's intestine, and hung to dry. Once dried, the sausage is pressed to flatten it. Once prepared, the sausage may be covered in a white fungus, which is removed before eating. Lukanka is served cold, cut into finely slices.

  • Shopska salad - A salad made with tomatoes, onions and cucumbers, and either raw or roasted peppers, and then covered with a layer of grated sirene (a salty white cheese that is unique to Bulgaria and Macedonia).

  • Lyutika - A mixture of vegetables (roasted peppers, onions and tomatoes), crushed and flavored with garlic or parsley. Yoghurt, boiled eggs, cooked chicken breasts, or sirene (white salty cheese) are sometimes added to the mixture.

  • Banitsa - A baked pastry with whisked eggs and sirene (white salty cheese).

  • Popara - Dry bread cooked with tea, milk or water, with butter, a small amount of sugar, and sirene (salty white cheese) or kajmak (similar to clotted cream).

  • Gyuvetch - A casserole made using beef, peppers, onions, aubergine, okra and tomatoes.

  • Sarma - A leaf-roll filled with minced meat, onions and rice.

    Sarma

  • Tsarska turshiya - A mixture of pickled vegetables, containing carrots, cauliflower, celery and red peppers.

  • Selska turshiya - Another mix of pickled vegetables. This one is made using cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, celery, green peppers and green tomatoes.

  • Garash - A walnut cake, frosted with cream and bitter chocolate, then covered with chocolate icing.

    Garash

  • Kozunak - Sweet bread with milk, butter, sugar, eggs, raisins and lemon zest.

Product Description:
I've always loved American tv, but when I was a kid I wondered, why do the people on the tv don't eat the meals I do? Do they don't like them? Obviously, the reason was that Bulgaria is just a small country in the Balkans, that no one’s heard about, but I didn’t know that. As I grew up, more and more tourists started visiting and do you know what? THEY LOVE BULGARIAN FOOD! When they come here, they don't want pizza or spaghetti, they want to eat what we eat. They want traditional breakfast and authentic lunch and dinner. I figured, if Bulgarian food is tasty for them, probably many people would like it, but they just don’t have access because our kitchen is not as famous as the French or the Japanese. So, I decided to write a book series on Bulgarian national kitchen. I went to my grandma, who is the best cook I have ever seen, and asked her to tell me the best recipes she knows. In this first book, I’ve put 72 vegetarian (non-vegan, that’s for the next one) salads, soups, main dishes and desserts, traditionally cooked in Bulgaria. My evil plan for you is to fall in love with our food, to tell your friends and they tell their friends, and so on, until everyone in the world is eating Banitsa!

Product Description:
This special edition of “The Oriental Cook Book : Recipes of Turkey, Armenia, Bulgaria, Greece and the Middle East” was written by Ardasheas H. Keoleian, and first published in 1913. At first glance, in this day and age, we don't think of Turkey, Armenia, Bulgaria, Greece or the Middle East as being part of what we know as “The Orient.” But back when this book was published, just after the turn of the last century, everything in the “east” was considered “The Orient,” and not just what we consider “Oriental” countries, like Japan, China, Indonesia, Thailand, etc,. This book features an eclectic mix of all these wonderful cuisines from the diverse cultures of Turkey, Armenia, Bulgaria, Greece and the Middle East. With sections on Soups, Roasts, Pilafs, Fish, Lobsters, Oysters, Vegetables – with Meat, Stuffed Dishes – with Meat, Sauces, Eggs, Desserts and much more. Also features menu plans for dinner parties and other gatherings. IMPORTANT NOTE – Please read BEFORE buying! THIS BOOK IS A REPRINT. IT IS NOT AN ORIGINAL COPY. This book is a reprint edition and is a perfect facsimile of the original book. It is not set in a modern typeface and has not been digitally rendered. As a result, some characters and images might suffer from slight imperfections, blurring, or minor shadows in the page background. This book appears exactly as it did when it was first printed.
