A taste of Romania

Enrich your cooking repertoire with our Romanian ABOs’ favourite recipes

In the first instalment of our new interactive recipe feature, ABOs from the beautiful country of Romania share their favourite recipes and iCookTM preparation tips. Ready for your mouth to water? Here we go.

A melting pot of flavour

Although Romania is perhaps best known for its enchanting medieval towns, fortified castles and, of course, the Dracula legend, it is also home to a rich cuisine. Influenced by a long history of cultural interaction, Romanian food borrows from its neighbours, as well as the world at large, to offer its own distinct taste, while also embracing an international offering.

Our Romanian ABOs share their favourite recipes and offer tips on how to best prepare – and demonstrate – the dishes for customers and prospects, with iCook cookware.

A slice of tradition

Sapphire ABOs, Maria and Ioan Prelipcean, from the charming village of Hordonic de Jos in Suceava, Romania, share a longstanding family favourite: fluffy bread made on the stove with the iCook Family Prestige Set.

“We cook this bread at least once a week and complement it with other recipes,” they say, adding that while traditionally the bread is made in the oven, they prefer to use iCook products to elevate the classic.

“The taste of the bread cooked like this is very different and much better,” they say, “For us this recipe is five stars plus (in taste) and perfect for demonstrating the qualities of iCook products.”

Exotic adaptation

For ABO Cornel Robu – an Emerald in Romania and Pearl in Italy – who hails from the Romanian city of Braila, ease of preparation takes centre stage.

“In front of a group, a longer demonstration can be boring,” he explains. For this reason, he names sweet and sour veal with pleurotus mushrooms and rice noodles as an all-time favourite.

“Once you have all the ingredients ready, the cooking time is only 30 minutes,” he says, “And during preparation we talk about the benefits of iCook cookware and use a video projector to show images.”
