to my Romanian cuisine


NewsNew Cookery Book


Carpathia will introduce you to Romania’s bold and delicious cuisine: an amalgamation of all its cultural influences. In doing so, it will take you on a culinary journey to the very heart of this fascinating European country, exploring its history, landscape and traditions through food.

“I am such a huge admirer of Irina Georgescu in general, and of this extraordinarily impressive and important book in particular. A must-have, not just for enquiring bakers but, crucially, for all those interested in the context and evolution of culinary culture.” 

Nigella Lawson

“A joy and an education. Irina Georgescu has disentangled the strands woven into Romanian cooking and identity and she has done so deliciously, through glorious cakes, pies, strudels and doughnuts. Cook, eat, learn.“
