Today we had the pleasure of tasting Bulgarian food, as well as learning about delicacies of the nation. We learned the Bulgarian recipe for a traditional Bulgarian salad (Шопска салата) and it provided an insight into not only the language of Bulgaria, but also the culture of the people. This culture is vibrant and completely unique to the country and the food created even more curiosity regarding the Bulgarian culture amongst our group. The food went down a treat and we learned about other traditional foods such as Tapotop (cucumber and yoghurt soup), and КИСЕЛО МЛЯКО (another yoghurt-based speciality)
Although we were all nursing full stomachs, the tasting language session has made us all only more eager to begin the second week of the project, and complete our film, poster, and blog posts about such an interesting country.
We are all thoroughly looking forward to our long session of filming on Monday!
