-Romanian CUISINE –
What is the typical Romanian cuisine?
Romanian cuisine has its origins in the folk cuisine of Central Europe and the Balkans. Romanian cuisine has also borrowed quite a few dishes from Turkish cuisine. The national dish is polenta, a type of simple corn cake similar to polenta. Polenta is served as a classic side dish for dinner. Diners eat mostly meat dishes, such as Romanian stuffed cabbage rolls wrapped in grape leaves, grilled minced meat cutlets or sausage-style dishes. A classic dish is the rich, sour ciorba soup, which is cooked in countless variations.
