Here's a little Christmas present for readers, especially in the USA. The Pofta Buna Cookbook is an authentic source of Romanian recipes written in English and published in the USA, which means all the measurements are in pounds and ounces!
The book was originally published in Ohio over fifty years ago by the young Romanian congregation of St. Mary's Orthodox church in Cleveland and contains many typical Romanian recipes, particularly from the Transylvanian region. Since then, its popularity has seen it go through fourteen reprints and a fifteenth is currently in progress.
