traditional-easter-products-neamt-2011Easter is the most important orthodox holiday and that is why the traditional Easter dinner has to be a special one. The Easter traditions are well preserved in Neamt County and transmitted from one generation to another. On the Easter table should be red painted eggs, cozonac, pasca, lamb and drob (made from lamb meat). These are only few of the culinary delights that every person from Neamt County has on his Easter table.

The tradition says that the Easter day is celebrated with your family, around a table filled with all the goodies. The traditional recipes are well kept by women and the delicious food products can be tasted if you’re also a tourist in these parts during Easter.

The red painted eggs are prepared starting with the Tuesday from the “big week” (it’s the last week before the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ) especially in the days of Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The red eggs symbolize the blood of Christ and the miracle of His resurrection: these are the defining food elements of the Easter holiday.

Pasca is a special cake that is made only on Easter. The cake can be with salted or sweet cheese or chocolate, with a big cross on top of it.

Another food that can’t miss from the Easter table if the lamb stake, that symbolizes the sacrifice of Christ. From lamb, people from Neamt County make stake, drob and bors.

In the Neamt area the celebration of Easter is made in church and after that around a table filled with all the goodies: red eggs, lamb stake and drob, cozonac, pasca, and red wine.
