UNESCO 2019: The Romanian Fish Brine Among Favourites

The old fish brine recipe from the Romanian side of the Danube Delta have been selected this year on the UNESCO's short list to be presented at the International Day for Biological Diversity, together with other 10 traditional recipes from the world's heritage sites (http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/).

The Danube Delta is the second largest wetland and reed bed in Europe, and the best preserved on the continent; the main part of the marshy Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve lies in Romania, and it is inscribed on UNESCO's World Heritage List since 1991.

The freshwater ecosystems give the reserve a rich biodiversity: 312 bird species can be found including the glossy ibis, the purple heron, the white-tailed eagle, and the largest population of great white pelicans in Europe. Fish species include the starlet, the thornback ray and the spined loach.

 

On the 18th of May, the Embassy of Romania hosted “Rowmania“, a rowing contest disputed on Lake Bled (https://ljubljana.mae.ro), and after the awarding ceremony, the competitors warmed themselves with home-made plum brandy and the delicious fish soup, prepared by Janez Klemenčič, following the original Danube Delta recipe provided by Ivan Patzaichin, the most decorated Romanian canoeist of all times.
