Looking for genuine Romanian food?

Lately, Bio (organic) and Homemade Bucharest fairs are actually ”invaded” by urban people in search of genuine food.

Why? Yummy – it’s easy to understand just looking at these photos!

Homemade cheese, sausages, bread, rachie (a Romanian traditional alcoholic drink) and many more at Indagrafarm Fair in Romexpo Exhibition Centre Bucharest.

plum marmaladeTraditional Romanian product made by an old, unchanged recipe, in a little town factory : Magiun de Prune Topoloveni (Topoloveni Plum Marmalade).

It is produced from the best quality fruits and it contains no sugar, additives and artificial flavours.

Plum Marmalade is highly recomanded to people who are not allowed to eat sugar. Or you can use it to prepare delicious cakes

Last, a traditional Romanian cake called Cozonac. We prepare it for Christmas, Easter and other special occasions. It’s very tasty and flavoured.

And this is only the beginning !

Organic recycling in Indonesia

Danamon Peduli’s Danamon Go Green project turns organic waste from Indonesia’s produce markets into fertiliser.

This approach has two benefits: it improves hygiene around marketplaces by getting rid of waste before it starts to rot; and it helps the local farming industry improve yields by up to 30% by providing chemical free fertiliser.

The project is a finalist on the BBC’s World Challenge competition, and you can watch the BBC programme about Danamon Peduli’s work in Indonesia on this site.

Looks like technology the rest of the world could use too.
