Project promoter: Progress Foundation

Project value: 14,869.47 EUR

Grant value (85% EEA Grant and 15% national budget): 58,852 lei (13,360.27 EUR)


Project summary

The project aimed to underline that home cooking is an authentic treasure of health and culture for the traditional communities (especially for ritual events: weddings, funerals, etc.).
The objective of the project was to record – in writing or digitally – the recipes of the skilled community caterers, who are recognized by the whole community. The project was based on:

  • The presentation of the protagonists ( the community caterers), which, without having an official training, are experts;
  • The underlining of the practical part of the activity and the way they do it;
  • The creation of a competition, with practical demonstration and the giving out of an award for the most valued competitor;
  • The combining of gastronomical practices with elements from the musical and dance inheritance.
