Cuisine: Bulgarian


Plum Cake

One of my favorite movies is “The English Patient”. In one of the scenes Hana brings to the patient plums from the garden. “It is a very plum plum”, he says.


Roasted Branzini with Fresh Herbs and Aromatic Potatoes

I love how simply perfect this dish is. Once you try the aromatic potatoes you will want to keep the recipe in secret. Hush-Hush.


Stuffed Red Peppers

On the scale for Bulgarian soulful home cooking this will be one of the top choices. The sweetness of the baked red peppers is well balanced with the aromatic stuffing.



Buhti was a favorite breakfast. My cousin liked them with sour cherry jam, my brother with apricot jam. I like them dipped in honey.


Trout with Hazelnut Pesto

Roasting the trout on a salted plate will keep the inside juicy and the outside crispy. The citrusy hints of the potato salad enrich the finishing touch of the dish.


Yogurt Bread with Feta Cheese

Add spinach, mushrooms and pancetta for a different twist on this traditional Bulgarian bread.


Midnight Confession

“It’s beyond my control”, as Vicomte de Valmont said in Les Liaisons Dangereuses. The hardness of the cake soaked in chocolate-rum syrup makes it impossible to resist.
