În rețetele franțuzești, adjectivul „forestier” indică prezența ciupercilor în rețetă, iar „pâté forestier” poate însemna multe lucruri, de la ceea ce cunoaștem noi drept pate de ficat, până la ceva asemănător drobului. Continue reading „Pâté forestier”
Prăjitura aceasta s-a născut dintr-o combinație de rețete. De fapt, a plecat de la o prăjitură testată într-un restaurant, a cărei rețetă exactă nu aveam cum s-o aflu. Rețeta asta, care purta același nume, a fost destul de aproape și cu mici modificări am obținut rezultatul dorit. Și da, amintește destul de mult de ciocolata Snickers.

Today I’m getting to another one of my favorite tours, despite the fact that it covers a less „pretty” area and reminds of the communist period, that did quite a bit of damage to some of the city’s most interesting areas and buildings. The tour combines several main tourist attractions, but also places a foreign visitor would probably never think of seeing while in Bucharest. So I really hope you enjoy it.

This tour takes you on a journey on Bucharest’s largest and best known boulevard: Calea Victoriei. Calea Victoriei (Victory Avenue) was named this way in 1877 to celebrate the victory of Romania in the Independence War against the Ottoman Empire. It stretches from the old center all the way to Piaţa Victoriei, where the Romanian Government building is found.
You may think that there’s a lot to see in Piața Romană, but did you know that from the roundabout (ASE building area) you can easily walk all the way to Aviatorilor area? And as a bonus, you will get to take a walk in one of Bucharest’s cleanest, greenest (and wealthiest) areas. Continue reading „Discover Bucharest: from Piața Romană to Herăstrău”
So, you’ve come to Bucharest for the weekend, or even a few days, and are uncertain about what you might visit? You’ve read about the Palace of Parliament and the Old Center, and perhaps the Ateheaneum and Herăstrău Park. But other than that, you have little idea of what could be nice to see in the city and will stick to the most touristic areas, bars and restaurants. Continue reading „Discover Bucharest: Old City Center”
After exploring the old center of Bucharest for one or two days, you, the first time visitor, might wonder what else is worth doing besides that. The closest thing (in the immediate vicinity of the old center restaurants and terraces) is the University area, with Piața Universității (University Square).
