Easter is an odd sort of hotchpotch of beliefs and myths festival…it has its roots in paganism and indeed its date is set by the cycles of the moon…yet is all about death, sacrifice and resurrection to Christians. Whatever it is, its very big in Romania, perhaps bigger than Christmas even, and I for one love Romanian Easter food and the tradition of dyed eggs. I’ve made a rougher textured “drob”, a moist fluffy “cozonac” with chocolate & dates and a “post” compliant spinach & “stevie” soup for this week’s menu. The Fourme D’Ambert tart and pear tart is something I haven’t made for years and now I wish I had! Week #16 Menu & Week #16 Wine Notes.
However you celebrate and whatever you celebrate: Happy Easter! Paste Fericit!
