Tussen de Pannen

From Almere (III)


Tussen de Pannen: Koken bij 15 culturen in Almere Bouwmeesterbuurt [Between the Pans: Cuisine from 15 cultures in Almere Architects neighbourhood] is a very special cooking book I got last Christmas from my Romanian friend, Mihaela.

This colourful cooking book is a multicultural project of Booming Bouwmeester and Woningcorporatie Ymere.
This project involved 15 participants coming from different nationalities and living actually in Almere Buiten, neighbourhood of Bouwmeesterbuurt.
This book aim is to get people closer, knowing better each others cooking traditions.

My friend Mihaela has participated in this book representing her home country, Romania (page 45).
She tells us how to cook a typical Romanian main course, Ciorba de perisoare and a typical Romanian dessert, Papanas. Lekker! Delicious!

What a great idea to bring together all these lovely recipes!
Was the representative from Spain a guy? :D Bendito tú eres, entre todas las mujeres, aaaaaaaaaaaméeeeeeeeeeeen :D
I've had a couple of these dishes. I'll pass on the zuurkool, but I'd be willing to try all the rest!
Is the Egyptian baklavá made with the threaded pastry, that looks like very thin threads or very thin spaghetti? I've made it with the normal filo pastry, but I'd like to know where you can get the threaded kiind, which I don't know the name of...
Why didn't they invite you?!!!!
