It’s always a bonus when a cookbook with mouthwatering recipes also has fascinating facts and fascinating information. That is the case of From Dill to Dracula: A Romanian Food & Folklore Cookbook by A M Ruggirello. This is a gorgeous book and makes readers want to visit Romania, which is to most a very unfamiliar place. One thing that is intriguing is that Dracula is said to come from Romania, and it’s fun to read all the background and data on that fictional character based on a real Romanian man.

Generally when I review a new cookbook, I bookmark the recipes that interest me; there are usually a few, and then I try them. The problem with this cookbook is that I wanted to bookmark almost every recipe; I have so many in the queue to try that it will take me a year to prepare all of them. The photographs for both the recipes and the history and facts about Romania are spectacular. The recipes are easy-to-follow, although some don’t follow standard recipe protocol. There are recipes for appetizers and spreads, yummy soups, interesting and unique main and side dishes and a large number of mouthwatering desserts.

This is one of those books to put on the coffee table, and also one to curl up in a corner and read for hours. Everything about this cookbook is top notch. Anyone who wants to learn something about Romania, and cook some of the food from that country, will definitely want to add this excellent cookbook to their collection.
