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:
Have you ever tasted authentic Bulgarian food? It is hearty, tasty and fresh. Can you make their recipes at home? Yes, you can, with this concise cookbook!

Bulgaria is known for the quality of its dairy products and vegetables, and it boasts a wide variety of mild spices. They often use beef and pork in their main meal recipes, although they do have some seafood dishes. They enjoy dishes made with lamb, as well.

Many staple foods in Bulgaria can also be found in Serbia, Turkey and Greece. However, each country, and even each region, has a local flavor that sets it apart from the others. From grilled meats to pastries and salads, you will be amazed at the Bulgarian dishes you can make yourself, at home.

Some of the ingredients in Bulgarian foods are not readily available out of the country, so I have offered local alternatives that will suit you well. Most of the ingredients are not too complicated. Their spices are more difficult to source, but I have described similar spices you can use in your cooking at home.

The chefs and homemakers in Bulgaria have created many nutritious and tasty dishes, which are an integral part of the country’s cuisine. You can enjoy this heritage in your own kitchen. Turn the page and let’s get cooking!

Welcome to Traditional Macedonian Recipes. The Ladies’ Section Mara Buneva (St. George’s Macedono-Bulgarian Eastern Orthodox Church, Toronto) originally assembled this cookbook as a Canadian Centennial Project, but in fact created a timeless treasure. On the 50th anniversary of the original printing of the book, it was found that there was still a demand for these cherished recipes, and that our audience had grown far and wide. The design and format are new, but the content is exactly the same (including the 40 additional recipes in the latter version). We hope that you will enjoy the book and maybe cast a thought back to the traditional cooking of those who came before us.

Bulgarian cuisine is distinct, yet eclectic at the same time with Mediterranean influence and flavors of its surrounding countries. Bulgaria borders the Black Sea, between Romania and Turkey. Greece is also a neighbor, along with Serbia and Macedonia to the west. This cookbook features 50 personal, but authentic recipes in attempts to further the tradition of keeping alive century old recipes of Bulgarian cuisine. I have tried to keep the recipes as authentic as possible with using American based ingredients and with every dish, dessert or drink there is a story to be told…

Product Description:
This cookbook features nearly two dozen truly ancient recipes of Bulgarian cooking. Some of these dishes are distant relatives to ones found in ancient Roman manuscripts believed to have been compiled in the late 4th or early 5th century AD. Others are among those far before the time of Christ. As Bulgaria is a country of oral history, recipes are typically not written, but passed down from one generation to the next by experiencing the method of preparation. With nearly every dish in Bulgarian cooking comes a story and custom. This cookbook attempts to preserve these century year old stories for many years to come so they can continue to be passed down.
