Cookingbookclub 9 | recipes from communism

As you remember, this year we are cooking from #321sourcesofinspiration, the proposal of the month being to search the archives for communist books, that maybe a recipe catches our eye.

From a 1962 salad book I found a recipe romantically titled “Vitamin Potato Salad.” At first I thought that as a dressing you pour some vitamins, but surprisingly, no. 🙂 You need 400g potatoes, 2 large carrots, 2 kohlrabi, 4 sour apples, 1/2 lemon, 2-3 tablespoons of oil, salt. I did without kohlrabi, because even though I sat for a good few minutes in front of the supermarket shelf, I left without buying them. 😀 Peeled potatoes, raw vegetables on a grater, large grated apples or thinly sliced. Add the dressing, mix, eat. Good, but it’s still a potato salad. 🙂

The next few days we have two more recipes, căcăuele (I bet you won’t guess what they are ?) and a fake pate recipe. From Oana’s mother’s special recipe book. 🙂

The next virtual meeting of our club will be at the beginning of July.
