Foods for holiday and every day amongst the Hungarians of Moldavia. „In Moldavia no one ever wrote down a recipe…they didn’t cook according to particular rules.” This article is organized around the following headings: soups, cornmeal/polenta, stuffed leaves, stuffed chicken, „Csiger” lamb offal (innerds) from the freshly butchered animal, „zsufa” (flaxseed gruel), crepe-like sweets filled with cottage cheese and a dumpling-like sweet. It should be noted that the Moldavian Csángó Hungarians lived in poverty surviving mainly by subsistence farming, so they ate what they could produce at home. By Halász Péter.
