Taste the Slavic delicacies – Taste the Shopska salad from Bulgaria


The rich cultural culinary heritage and cooking traditions as components of intangible cultural heritage co-create the contemporary image of healthy Bulgarian cooking. Bulgarian salads are an essential part of the so-called “Bulgarian diet”. Served as starters, they are often accompanied by rakia, a Bulgarian version of slivovitz plum brandy. Bulgarian salads are both hearty and large and can be enjoyed as a meal in themselves. Shopska salad is characteristic for the Sofia region and is one of the most emblematic Bulgarian dishes today, famous the world over.

We are happy to be able to share with you the recipe from our book At the Table with the Slavs, a proud winner of the Best in the World – Gourmand World Cookbook Award.
