100 Bulgarian dishes
Bulgaria is a country of diverse landscapes, thousands of years of turbulent history and an unexpectedly rich cuisine. Based on the ancient Thracian and Slavic culinary heritage, the Bulgarian cuisine also combines the great Ottoman, Persian and Greek traditions. These are reflected through the highly varied local natural conditions,
way of life and the people’s soul and mentality.
Inspired by Bulgaria’s enormous culinary variety, experienced Chef Ivelina Ivanova has selected one hundred recipes. Some of them are typically cooked throughout the country while others have the unique character of a specific region. All dishes reflect the authentic Bulgarian taste to the greatest extent and are in keeping with the modern trends in healthy food.
