Florentine fish


Leave the fish to thaw in the refrigerator overnight. The next day he is left to fend for himself.

Mix the breadcrumbs with salt, pepper and nutmeg powder. Pass the fish fillets through the breadcrumbs and place them in a tray lined with parchment paper greased with olive oil. Sprinkle the fish with a little olive oil and put in the oven (preheated to 200 degrees C) for 30 minutes. Halfway through, turn the fillets on the other side as well.

Meanwhile, we are preparing the spinach. Peel the garlic and finely chop it. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a wok and sauté the garlic for a few seconds, then add the washed and drained spinach. If you use frozen spinach, put it frozen in the wok, but be careful not to salt the oil. Add 100 ml of dry white wine and simmer for 10 minutes. Season with salt and keep warm until serving.

Serve the fish fillets on a bed of spinach and sprinkle everything with fresh lemon juice.

Good appetite!


& # 8216Cioaca va claca! & # 8217

The story of the mysterious disappearance of the Brasov lawyer Elodia Ghinescu seems to be far from over. Investigators are searching for the body of the 38-year-old woman, who is believed to have been killed, and the main suspect, police officer Cristian Cioaca, is appearing on television. The officer was studied by the forensic psychologist Tudorel Butoi, a specialist with old states in the field.

& # 8216In trying to control himself, the Cioaca policeman often has impulsive remarks or even strange outbursts, as happens when he laughs nervously. In addition, he avoids the gaze of the person he is talking to, has long periods to prepare his answers, his voice trembles or bites his lips and he always rubs his hands. Interpreting his behavior, facial expressions and gestures, it is obvious to me that Cioaca has a duplicitous attitude & # 8217, according to forensic psychologist Tudorel Butoi. After 30 years of career, the expert told us that this case could be solved in the absence of the corpse: & # 8216If the genetic profile on the uniform will be identical to that of the policeman, and on the uniform there will be blood stains with The DNA of the woman sought, then the direct evidence will be made between the perpetrator and the victim.

Thus, the measure of arrest will not be able to be refused by any court on earth & # 8217. Specialist Butoi believes that, if he is guilty, the policeman Cioaca will eventually give in: & # 8216I am convinced that if he is arrested, Cioaca will crack! & # 8217.

The hearings will resume today. Among those who will answer questions from investigators again is Patrik's nanny, the one-year-old and ten-month-old child of Elodia Ghinescu and Cioaca. The nanny is the one who met daily with the two and who entered their apartment both on the day of the lawyer's disappearance, on August 29, and the next morning.

Then, she found only Cioaca and his son at home and was put by the police to pack her child.

Then, Cioaca got in the car with Patrik and they left for Arges, home to the policeman's parents.
In the following days, Cristian Cioaca will be heard.

& # 8222I told him to write what he has on his mind on a piece of paper which we then set on fire & # 8221

The lawyer Florentin Sorescu, the defender of Cristian Cioaca, told us yesterday that he and his client had, from the beginning, an agreement: & # 8216I asked him if he has something to say, something that only I should know, a secret, and I told him to write what's on his mind on a piece of paper and then set it on fire. The lawyer claims that this never happened.

The policeman's defender spent the last days reading Elodia's correspondence with an SPP member, the one with whom she spent her vacation in Dubai, shortly before disappearing. Sorescu says that the last message that Elodia sent to the man is a strange one, in which the woman seems to be living an existential crisis. Elodia's depression was also related to "something bad" that happened while she was in Dubai, but also to the fact that her husband had just announced that he wanted to divorce. & # 8216

Flower customs and superstitions. Why eat fish and what you need to do on Flower Sunday to get lucky

The feast of the Lord's entry into Jerusalem was superimposed on that of the Roman goddess of flowers, Flora, hence the popular name it received. Thus, on the Christian feast of the entry of the Savior into Jerusalem, innumerable customs and traditions appeared, both in the rural environment and in the urban one, most of which are pagan in origin.

For example, Florii is used to being "cursed", so that the girls found out, through various procedures, whether or not they would get married that year. Also by Florii, the martisoar worn on this day is placed on the branches of a flowering tree or on a rosehip, and the dowry is removed from the house for aeration.

Before the holiday, unmarried girls from Banat and Transylvania usually put a mirror and a clean shirt under their grafted hair. After sunrise, these objects are used in charms for luck and love and health.

Also, at midnight, basil is boiled in water, and in the morning the girls wash their heads with this stew, in order to grow their beautiful and shiny hair. What was left was poured at the root of a hair, in the hope that the boys would look after them, like a flowering tree.

It is also said that those who dare to wash their heads on the day of Flowers without holy and sanctified water risk whitening.

In all Christian peoples, different customs can be found, some even similar to ours, most of them with palm or willow in the foreground. These traditions have nothing in common with the Christian spirit of the feast of the coming of the Savior into Jerusalem.

Christians celebrate the Entry of the Savior into Jerusalem by participating in the Holy Mass, decorating with icons of holy willow branches the icons, doors, and windows of their households, and keeping the fast of the fast. These consecrated branches are kept throughout the year, being used with faith in the healing of various diseases. People are also accustomed to digging these branches into freshly sown layers, feeding them to animals, or placing them on graves. The green branches symbolize chastity, but also the rebirth of vegetation, while reminding us of the branches with which Jesus was greeted at the entrance to Jerusalem on this day.

And before the Flowers, women from some parts of the country bring offerings to commemorate the dead and share fasting pies. At the same time, a complex ceremony was held called Lazariţa, after the model of carols, in which only the girls participated. One of the girls, called & quotLazăriţa & quot, was wearing a bridal gown and a carol, along with the others, in front of the windows of the houses where they were received. Lazarus walked slowly, forward and backward, in the circle formed by the carolers who narrate, on a simple song, the drama of Lazarus or "Lazarus": Lazarus' departure from home with the sheep, climbing the tree to give the animals a leaf, death falling from the tree, searching for and finding the lifeless body of his sisters, bringing home, ritual bathing in sweet milk, dressing the dead with walnut leaves, and throwing the dead man's bath under the nuts.

In the past, the consecrated willow branch was also used for therapeutic purposes. People swallowed willows from the willow branch to protect themselves from various diseases, and the old women would gird themselves with willow so that their shawls would no longer hurt.

It was also customary for parents to beat their children with a willow stick when they came from church to grow up healthy and wise.

On flowers, the Arabs light candles, decorated with flowers, which they place among palm leaves, and the Greeks weave crosses from stems. Among the Slavic peoples it is customary for those close to them to donate willow branches on this day.

De Florii eats fish, this being the second release from Lent, after the day of the Annunciation. The Orthodox Church approves of fish, because it is said that on this day Jesus asked to eat fish. It is said by the people that the fish eaten on this day has healing powers and whoever eats it will be cured of any disease.

On Flower Day, people bring willow branches to the church, which are consecrated and then placed on icons, fruit trees to help them bear fruit, or the door of the house to be protected all year round. According to the faith, the branches help to cure diseases, to the abundance of the household and are kept throughout the year, until the next Feast of Flowers.

Around 1.5 million Romanians celebrate the name day. Of those celebrated, nearly 900,000 are women, statistics show. The most popular names for women are Viorica, Florentina, Florica. There are also rom & acircnce with rarer names, such as Garofiţa, Micşunica, Panseluţa or Crizantema.

In men, those named Florin, Viorel, Florian, the most often celebrated, as well as those baptized Trandafir, Bujor, Mărgărit or Crin are celebrated.

Tradition says that as the time of the Flowers will be, so will the first day of Easter.


Let us remember how our grandparents and great-grandparents celebrated Flower Sunday, one of the great Orthodox holidays of the year!

The Sunday of Flowers is the day after the resurrection of Lazarus and is descended from heaven with a divine radiance bringing victory over the death of the next Sunday, that of the Resurrection of Christ. We all look forward to this Feast, as St. John Chrysostom did at the dawn of the Christian Church, and greet it with olive branches, myrtle leaves, and flowering lilac twigs singing hymns of glory, she says. Kera Calița, mistress from Locanta Jariștea.

Flower Sunday is one of the 12 Royal Feasts of the year and therefore, after, according to the ancient ordinance, the Romanian faithful go to church for service, dressed in clean, white clothes, like the purity of soul they want, the joy of the moments of spiritual exaltation is exchanged on the occasion of a beautiful party with the family around a modest table, above which watches an icon around which the willow branches with catkins are consecrated, consecrated in the morning at the church.

After dipping his fingers in the bowl of rose water tongs and fitting the silk napkin embroidered with gold thread on his lap, the boyar ordered the biv-vel-medelnicer dumisale to be brought to the table first, on a silver tip. thoroughly polished, a loaf of bread called "wheat flower", of which everyone in the house must taste a piece to seal the bonds of good soul and to meet again at the other holidays of the year. From Flower Sunday, fasting is easier, because fish and oil are approved. Grilled mackerel was usually prized by those with a helping hand, as was the carp caviar salad, long rubbed with olive oil dripped into a thin thread, and the "caviar" of beans garnished with slices of dusted hashish. At the same time, the pieces of fish brought to the table can be cooked with red and garlic aubergine sauce, and if the burnt ceramic plates containing the pike, the sleeping feather or the hammock are put in the oven, you must put a sage or thyme sprig on top. , according to the boyar. Leurda or the early forest garlic will, in turn, smell the dishes, but as if not a little green butter or some allspice, some smoked flakes of prickly mushroom or, for those dedicated to expensive spices brought by colonial shops, starry and a little turmeric or turmeric, would not do any harm.

Mushrooms and pilafs should not be missing either, whether it's a mushroom stew with plum sauce or a rice with raisins, as in the time of Brâncovean. Lent sarmales, stuffed with capers or with pumpkin pulp and roasted hazelnuts, can be brought, depending on the appetite of the diners, wrapped in small leaves of linden or horseradish (burdock) or, on the contrary, in wide sheets of the first stevia harvested in the spring.

With a proper outpouring of the overflowing of hearts, the humble thoughts of the honest passers-by in feasting can be kept to the rhythm of the sounds of the strings of the zither or the lute.

The sweets will not be missing from the table either, but great care must be taken to respect the canons that any cuhnie will follow now. For fasting pies, which, on Flower Sunday, are also distributed for alms, it is appropriate to use almond milk.

At the Feast of Flowers, at the beginning and end of the meal it is good to look for a few moments at the burning candle and it will flicker uninterruptedly in the days of denial, for every Christian must prepare in the coming week for the Resurrection of the Lord, as his soul. to be able to pass from the darkness of sin to the light of righteous faith.

Șalău cu șampanie, cepe mici și ciuperci

3-4 fileuri frumoase de șalău

400 gr ciuperci prospete tocate, păstrând 10 pălării de ciupercă frumoase

1 linguriţă de zeamă de lămâie proaspăt stoarsă

2 ceşti de smântână groasă

sare şi piper verde proaspăt măcinat

bucheţele de pătrunjel şi mărar verde

Mai întâi, cuptorul este încălzit strașnic, apoi se lasă focul mai moale, înainte cu trei minute de a da peștele la cuptor.

Fileurile de șalău sunt aranjate într-o tavă unsă cu unt. Se adaugă cepele şi ciupercile tocate. Se toarnă şampania peste toate. Peștele se lasă la cuptor o jumătate de ceas, întorcându-l de câteva ori de pe o parte pe alta și verificându-se să nu se ardă.
Între timp, pălăriile de ciupercă păstrate separat se trag în puţină apă cu zeamă de lămâie. Apoi, se lasă la scurs bine.

După ce peștele e gata, se scot fileurile, iar lichidul din tavă este strecurat. Zeama curată este dată într-un clocot, obţinându-se, apoi, o reducţie cam de o jumătate de ceaşcă, căreia i se adaugă smântâna şi puţin unt, amestecând şi obţinând o altă reducţie, asezonată cu sare şi piper. Reducţia finală se toarnă peste fileurile de peşte, având grijă să fie garnisit platoul cu bucheţele de verdeaţă.

După ce le-ai pisat bine, trece prin sită şi, punând piureul pe gheaţă, adaugă şi smântână dublă foarte proaspătă, sare, piper şi puţină nucşoară rasă. Apoi, scoţi câte o lingură şi arunci în apa în clocot.

Panada de care am vorbit se face astfel: 250 grame făină, 1 litru de lapte, 1 ou, sare şi piper se amestecă, se fierb, apoi se freacă cu lingura de lemn până ce se usucă. Panada se răstoarnă pe o marmură presărată cu făină spre a se răci înainte de a fi întrebuinţată.

Din altă parte, racii se prepară astfel. Pui racii vii cu tubul digestiv scos pe un pat de morcovi, ceapă, ţelină etc., torni un pahar de coniac şi-i dai foc. Umpli cu vin alb, adaugi tomate proaspete fără pieliţă şi seminţe, şi laşi să fiarbă 10 minute. Scoţi cojile de pe coada racilor, iar restul le pisezi în piuliţă şi le treci apoi prin sită. Pui piureul iarăşi în sosul în care au fiert racii.

Treci totul iarăşi prin sită, fă să scadă pe foc, adaugă unt proaspăt şi smântână dublă. Pune sare şi mult piper măcinat.

Pui într-o tavă chiftelele de peşte şi cele făcute din raci, pui împrejur cozile racilor şi ciuperci săltate în unt. Torni sosul peste toate şi gratinezi la cuptor foarte cald.” (C. Bacalbașa – Dictatura Gastronomică, 1935)

Pană de somn

„Lăsăm o pană de somn frumoasă să se desăreze două ore în apă rece, pe care o schimbăm din când în când. Apoi, o punem cu apă rece la foc. Să fiarbă încet până va fi moale. Scursă de apă, așezată pe farfurie, o acoperim cu usturoi zdrobit, pe care-l așternem cu cuțitul, apăsând ușor, să nu cadă jos. Apoi, punem peste ea untdelemn și oțet. O lăsăm așa câteva ore, să se pătrundă, înainte de a o servi.” (Simona Racoviță - Meniuri pentru întreg anul, 1935)

Ingrediente și mod de preparare: „Preafericirea Sa Antim Ivireanu, a lăsat cu legătură de nesmintire veşnică, la ctitoria Sa Mânăstirea Antim, ca, de patru ori pe an egumenul aşezământului să se ducă cu plocon în deal, la preasfânta Mitropolie. Şi ploconul era o oca de cafea şi o oca de zahăr, iar pentru cinstirea înaltelor feţe ale bisericii neamului, se ferchezuiau icre de crap pe platouri întinse şi argintate.

Pentru zece feţe bisericeşti se pregătesc la prima geană de lumină: 300 gr icre de crap, 500 ml untdelemn din cel mai bun, zeama de la trei lămâi de mărime nici mari, nici mici şi, după datina mânăstirească, cu o lingură de lemn bine şmirgheluită, încep să se frece icrele cu uleiul care se toarnă cu răbdare monahală, picătură cu picătură. Taina este aceeaşi de sute de ani, icrele se dichisesc cu lingura de lemn într-un singur sens, spre dreapta cu răsuflare molcomită. Dacă din întâmplare icrele se întăresc, se adaugă puţină apă minerală rece şi la sfârşit, salata fiind gata sulemenită, se stropeşte cu zeama celor trei lămâi mijlocii, se potriveşte de gust spilcuite în forma poftită. ”, ne arată Kera Calița, preacinstita păstrătoare a tradițiilor noastre


Alexandroupoli – centrul unui mic univers de vacanțe

Dorul de Grecia ardea și pentru a-l stinge am plecat la Alexandroupoli. Nu am mai fost pe acolo de 2 ani și, cu toate că îmi promisesem să nu mai merg în partea de nord a Greciei mai devreme de 20 iunie, invitația la turul de informare organizat de EOT, Oficiul Natonal de Turism al Greciei și Prefectura Regiunii Macedonia de Est și Tracia, m-a făcut să risc. Riscul era să fie vreme neînsorită. Am pățit asta de câteva ori.

Ne-am îmbarcat în autocar și am pornit la drum. Cu cât ne apropiam de Grecia, cu atât eram, parcă, mai nerăbdători să ajungem pe tărâmul Legendelor Olimpului.

Grecia este una dintre destinațiile mele favorite și aici am avut vacanțe și peripeții care mi-au lăsat amintiri de neuitat.

Alexandroupoli – Intrarea în Grecia

Și am ajuns. Am intrat în Grecia pe la Ormenio și prima oprire a fost la Orestiada. Micuțul oraș este una dintre noile așezări întemeiate de grecii nevoiți să părăsească locurile lor din Turcia în 1923, după Tratatul de la Lausane. Autoritățile ospitaliere și puse pe fapte mari. În oraș sunt 4 hoteluri care oferă în total 261 de camere și este bine să fie luat în seama ca punct de tranzit. Am admirat floarea cu celule fotovoltaice care produce energia electrică necesară funcționării fâtânilor arteziene din centrul urbei.

Ne-am plimbat puțin prin centru și am pornit spre Alexandroupoli unde urma să avem prima înoptare.

Alexandroupoli – Marea Egee văzută de pe terasa Ramada Thrakia Palace

Ramada Thrakia Palace este un hotel primitor care este într-un program de renovare fără a fi închis și lucrările se fac cu responsabilitate maximă. Gazdele ne-au așteptat cu o cină bună și apoi a urmat prima baie în limpedea și albastra Egee. Hotelul este în vestul orașului, într-o zonă liniștită, chiar pe malul mării și are o plajă destul de îngustă, cu nisip și intrare suficient de lentă în mare. Are un centru SPA generos dar căruia i-am preferat marea, săli de conferințe, piscine și cam tot ce poți dori de la un hotel ca acesta.

A doua zi, după un somn bun, am pornit să vizităm orașul. ”Cei mai harnici” alexandroupolitani ocupaseră deja tavernele și discutau de-ale lor, fără telefoane sau alte device-uri de care noi părem că suntem legați ombilical. Acești cei mai harnici cetățeni snt toți de vârsta a treia, pensionari care își permit să pălăvrăgească la tavernă, la o cafea sau la un alt adevărat cult al civilizației elene, ”ouzo me meze”, adică un păhărel de ouzo și diverse gustări din bucătăria mediteraneană.

Alexandroupoli – o tavernă pescărească aproape de prânz

Orașul este relativ nou și a pornit de la un sat de pescari întemeiat, conform lui Herodot, de coloniștii din Samothraki. Dealungul istoriei sale orașul a fost sub mai multe autorități dar cea mai mare influență în dezvoltarea sa nu a avut-o nici ieșirea la Marea Egee, nici că s-a aflat pe drumul roman ce lega Roma de Constantinopol, numit astăzi Egnatia Odos, ci a avut-o contruirea căii ferate Thessaloniki – Constantinopol, în 1871. După aceasta multe țări au decis să-și deshidă aici, la Dedeagats (cum se numea atunci) consulate sau chiar ambasade. În 1897 Orient Express a oprit în gara orașului și asta nu era puțin lucru nici atunci cum nu e nici acum. Numele actual îl are din 14 mai 1920 și a fost pus în cinstea regelui Alexandru I al Greciei care a trecut prin oraș în fruntea trupelor pe care le conducea la Adrianopol. Atunci Alexandroupoli a fost eliberat de sub dominația bulgară.

Alexandroupoli – Grecotel Astir-Egnatia

Delta râului Evros este la o aruncătură de băț de Alexandroupoli. O deltă mică dar care este o foarte importantă stație în migrația păsărilor și pe care nu trebuia să o ratăm. Perioada aceasta nu e cea mai bună pentru vizită și am văzut doar pescăruși, cormorani și doi pelicani despre care administratorii sperau să fie o familie care să cuibărească aici.

Situația se schimbă toamna când, în drumul lor spre zonele de iernat și primăvara când se întorc în zonele de cuibărit, păsările fac popas în această deltă pentru a-și reface forțele și energia înainte și după ce au traversat Mediterana.

Din noiembrie până spre sfârșitul lui martie păsările flamingo fac din delta Evrosului o mare roz iar doritorii de privit și fotografiat păsări iau cu asalt regiunea și cu greu poți găsi un loc de cazare în zonă. Peste drum de Administrația deltei se pot vedea ruinele vechilor terme romane de la Traianoupoli despre care autoritățile spuneau că sunt foarte aproape să obțină finațare pentru renovare.

Alexandroupoli oferă cazări de toate felurile, de la studiouri până la elegante hoteluri de 5 stele ditre care Grecotel iese în evidență în special cu camerele cu piscină privată, cu servicii de calitate prestate de personal profesionist, cu bucătăria fină și nu numai. Un alt hotel cotat la 5 stele este Alexander Beach Hotel care are și un cazino La Alexandroupoli găsiți taverne care te îmbie cu aromele și gusturile Egeei și Traciei. Plajele întinse de la Delta Evrosului la Delta Nestosului îți sunt la îndemâna atât a celor cu cartierul general în Alexandroupoli cât și a celor care au ales cazări în salba de mici sate din această zonă.

Aflat la puțin peste o jumătate de oră de Alexandroupoli, Maronia reprezintă o bună alegere pentru o vacanță de relaxare, iar Hotelul Roxani oferă pe lângă liniștea întreruptă doar de trilurile păsărilor, o priveliște extraordinară către mare, de la 300 m altitudine și este la doar 4 km de plajele ei. Chiar lângo plajă vă așteaptă Hotelul Ismaros care are pe lângă oferte cu plan de masă și studiouri cu bucătărioare dotate, pentru cei ce preferă să-și testeze talentele de chefi.

Dar cel mai bine este să cereți recomandările unei agenții de turism și Edelweiss Travel este una dintre cele căreia daca îi veți cere sprijinul nu veți regret.

Deci, Alexandroupoli și împrejurimile sale sunt o destinație de vacanță ce trebuie luată în calcul, mai ales că este la doar 525 de km de București.
