Review; From Dill to Dracula: A Romanian Food & Folklore Cookbook by A M Ruggirello

Last year I was fortunate enough to recieve an ARC of the cookbook From Dill to Dracula: A Romanian Food & Folklore Cookbook by A M Ruggirello through Netgalley. I read it shortly afterwards and today I'll post my review.

Description from Goodreads
Romania-a hidden gem of Eastern Europe-is better known for its brush with communism than its cuisine. But, just because it's hidden, doesn't mean it's forgotten. Filled with lush ingredients, many picked fresh from the field, you'll find a traditional Romanian plate loaded to the brim with vegetables and lean proteins, never lacking in flavor.

And nestled in those hidden hills and winding landscapes, lies a culture as rich and decadent as their meals. Journey through the countryside with over 80 recipes as unique as the people who have been perfecting them for centuries, all the while learning about the folklore and traditions that have steeped Romania in mystical mystery for so long.

My Thoughts on the Book
I really liked From Dill to Dracula. It has plenty of interesting recipes and it also tells about folklore, traditions and Vlad the Impaler. There's also some really amazing photographs in this book. That said, one of the recipes I'd love to try is the Piersici (peach cookies).
