Moldovan Magic at Boon
What can you say about Moldova that hasn’t already been said? Or at least been turned into a music video? ?
Except, of course the words: “I don’t need to google Moldova right now, because I already know where it is.” But, close that browser window open to Wikipedia. Allow us to give you a little song and dance about Moldova.
The lovely people of Moldova are a cheerfully dancing folk living in sort-of Romania, kind-of Ukraine, some-times called Bessarabia.
Theirs is a landlocked country (ironically with a great number of off-shore accounts) with a lyrical agrarian temperament, that can still keep up with a more modern tempo.
And who doesn’t love Moldova’s national motto: “Things are bound to get better eventually. Meanwhile, we eat!”
We’ve lined up some favorite Moldovan (Moldoffal?) dishes for you to try: Tripe, tongue, and rabbit with mamaliga (their version of polenta). And trust us, their food is as excellent as their longstanding tradition of musicians singing while frolicking in fields.
