Cooking Around the World: Cabbage Rolls. Beet Salad. Chickpea Pudding {Moldova}

I had to get out my atlas for this one. Moldova? Never heard of it!

Landlocked Moldova lies between Romania and Ukraine and consists of hilly grasslands flanked by the Prut and Dniester Rivers. Mostly pastoral lands, Moldova was part of Romania before World War II, and a majority of Moldovans still speak Romanian. Soviets annexed Moldova in 1940, and Russians and Ukrainians settled in the industrial region east of the Dniester (known as Transdniestria). After Moldova gained independence in 1991, Transdniestria seceded, making Tiraspol its capital.

Here's what we made. Click on the titles to go to the recipe post.
