Manastirski Gyuvetch

Monastery Gyuvetch

This dish used to be prepared at the Rila Monastery kitchen. Rila Monastery is one of the most famous Bulgarian tourist attractions and a milestone in Bulgarian culture and religion - it has survived almost untouched throughout the years of the Ottoman Yoke and has provided a shelter and education to many people in the years of oppression.

Parjeni Iabalki

Baked Apples


There isn't much to this baked apple recipe, which is probably more universal than Bulgarian - though the walnuts might be a particular Bulgarian touch. It's good if you like baked apples, but it won't turn you into a convert if you don't. That said, the vanilla syrup from the original recipe might have made all the difference, alas I burnt it and didn't have time to make more, so I served them with ice cream instead.

Due to the combination of water, fats, salt, and vinegar used in the preparation, which are known to reduce gastrointestinal discomfort associated with hangovers, this soup is very well known as a hangover remedy.

Sirene po Shopski

(Cheese Shopski Style)


There is no good translation of this meal's name but it definitely comes from the Sofia region. Shopski is the adjective for shop, a mythical person believed to live in or around the city of Sofia. There are a lot of stories for how smart industrious and stubborn these people are but this is not the point here, the point is that after all they left us a pretty good recipe., European Gourmet Food (C) 2015, All Rights Reserved.
