The rest of Romania

Sorry for the lack of updates the past couple of weeks – Romania was hectic but amazing and I hardly had time to think, let alone blog!

I’m back home now, and looking through my photographs from the trip is just about the only thing making me smile – I always get so down after an amazing time away, coming back to reality isn’t easy!

Since my last update, I have eaten LOTS more delicious Romanian food, including cakes, patisserie, and some of the most delicious fresh produce you can imagine. Here is the rest of my food journey in pictures…

This is Orannia, my honourary little sister for week three – together we baked a 12″ chocolate cake which everybody loved!

Tiramisu AND ice cream – they must have known I was coming…

Cozonac – a traditional bread made at Christmas and Easter with swirls of chocolate and nuts

Freshly picked cucumber

Cherry trees are abundant in Romania, but these rose ones were unlike any I’ve tried before

Possibly the sweetest strawberries I’ve ever tasted

There was a fair bit of wine tasting to go with all the food…

Not sure how traditional these cakes are, but they look delicious!

Right, normal blog service will resume shortly – I have plenty lined up including chocolate, vegetables and a cheesecake to die for – it should be a busy month of blogging and baking!

  1. It seems that someone had a great time in Romania ;). Gosh, I so miss those places, considering that I’ve been living for the last 10 years in Milan. I do go back though from time to time. If you’re interested in the Cozonac recipe, let me know. It might not be top secret after all 😉 ( but you must know it’s not a piece of cake preparing it 🙂 ).

    • I had the best time ever – I’ve already booked my next trip back!

      I didn’t realise you were in Milan now but that does explain the style of a lot of your delicious looking food… If you have a Cozonac recipe that you’d be happy to share I would be very, very grateful and would enjoy the challenge of making it! My email is
