I have just returned from my X.mas break in Bulgaria. In previous Posts I had the chance of praising and advertising a wonderful country, a melting pot of Folks, cultures and landscapes.
It is still a diamond in the rough, meaning that it has so many great potentialities still to be explored.
Today, I am going to share with you one of my favorite Bulgarian “Tapas”, it is a quick delicious dish to be enjoyed with friends and family.
Any typical Bulgarian Restaurant will have it in its Menù, so next time that you go there do not forget to ask for it.
You can have it with a strong full bodied Bulgarian Red Wine, I recommend Black C.
Hope that you will enjoy it as much as my family and I does it.
