Fabulous taste of Burzeland region

The Burzeland (Tara Barsei) is a historic and ethnographic area in southeastern Transylvania, with a mixed population of Romanians, Germans and Hungarians. A mix, centuries-old culinary tradition based on fresh local ingredients (lamb, beef, sausages), breads and pastries and fruits(plums, apples, pears and mountain berries).Yoghurt, crud and local cheese (known as branza) are made from locally sourced sheep or cow’s milk. Notable local dishes include ciorba de vacuta (the soup usually contains beef, a variety of vegetables such as celery stalks, onions, carrots, potatoes, bell pepperes, cauliflower, or zucchinis), mamaliga cu branza si smantana (MBS)(a traditional Romanian porridge topped with butter, sour cream, or cascaval cheese), sarmale pe varza (a mixture of rice and minced meat or vegetables wrapped in pickled cabbage leaves and steamed), papanasi brasovenesti (sweet white cheese donuts covered with blueberry, sour cherry, or forest fruit jam). The dishes of the resident chef are complemented and enhanced, at the choice of the guests, by selection of the wines of our wine cellar.
