Description

“At a time when we are all forced to stay at home, travelling in the kitchen can be a great comfort. And I have been so grateful for Irina Georgescu for taking me to Romania through the pages of her wonderful book, Carpathia. Every page is imbued with generosity, the spirit of community, and the flavours of a rich and varied culture: it makes for an uplifting, inspiring and gorgeously transporting read right now.” Nigella Lawson

Carpathia invites you to explore Romania’s unique, bold and delicious cuisine: an exciting and unexpected amalgamation of all its diverse influences. As a cultural melting pot its character is rooted in many traditions from Greek, Turkish and Slavic in the south and east, to Austrian, Hungarian and Saxon in the north and west. 
From chargrilled aubergines, polenta fritters and butterbean hummus, to tangy borş, stuffed breads and Viennese-style layer cakes, Irina Georgescu has created over 100 mouth-watering dishes that are easy to make and a joy to share.
 
“I couldn’t be happier to see one of my favourite cuisines being represented by a voice as warm and thoughtful as Irina Georgescu's. Carpathia is full of delicious and interesting recipes and photos that will tempt you to travel to the Carpathian Mountains immediately.”
Olia Hercules, author of Mamushka and Kaukasis
 
"An absolutely beautiful book showcasing Romanian food as a wondrous amalgam of Europe's diverse cuisines.  Real, delicious and accessible - I will be making everything from the plācintā to prajitura, cremsnit to cataif!" 
Helen Goh, co-author of Sweet with Yotam Ottolenghi. 
 
"Carpathia takes the reader roaming through Romania from Transylvania to the Danube Delta while introducing dozens of satisfying recipes that express the landscape, culture and joys of traditional Romanian hospitality. This is a book of many virtues, filled with new ideas, flavours and insights.”
Caroline Eden, author of Samarkand and Black Sea.
 
"A beautiful book full of life and flavour; I not only want to try so many of the recipes, I now want to visit the country that inspired them.” 
Mark Diacono, author of SourThe New Kitchen Garden and A Year at Otter Farm.
