City Compass Tours & Events organised in April a New Romanian Cuisine Cooking Class in Bucharest together with their partners from Terra Carpatica. The participants discovered the unspoiled culinary treasures of the Carpathian Mountains, one of Europe’s most amazing natural environments.
The event gathered a very diverse crowd of participants from toddlers to seniors and all of them enjoyed being part of the class. They were split into several teams and were assigned a part of the menu.
After finding out the story behind the ingredients and the recipes they started cooking under the careful guidance and instruction of Juranda who mingled and offered advice every step of the way. The children enjoyed in particular making the focaccia and the bread together with their parents whilst the adults found out more about several types of wine they could pair with the selected dishes.
The teams were also impressed by the choice of ingredients and spices and surprised by the use of some of them. Who would have thought about adding cranberries to the foie gras or replacing the mushrooms or cheese with prunes and quince confit in a turkey roll?
Juranda, co-founder of Terra Carpatica, combined traditional Romanian food recipes with international influences creating a unique Romanian slow food cuisine.
The menu included:
- Homemade pate with cranberries
- Turkey rolls with prunes and quince confit, red cabbage salad with apples
- Stuffed focaccia with seasonal salad
- Homemade bread with caramelised onion and cumin
- Homemade bread with olives and goat cheese
- Salty Caramel apple nests

Enjoy the result!
