Bulgarian Rhapsody: The Best of Balkan Cuisine

When I returned to the United States, I started networking with the Bulgarian community in the Washington, D.C. area. One day I realized I had collected enough recipes to write a cookbook and the lack of Bulgarian cookbooks encouraged me to proceed. The end product was a labor of love called Bulgarian Rhapsody: The Best of Balkan Cuisine.  Since one of the best windows into a culture is its cuisine, Bulgarian Rhapsody explores the culinary and cultural traditions of this wonderful country that lay hidden behind the Iron Curtain for almost fifty years.

Since I published Bulgarian Rhapsody, I haven't stopped collecting recipes. Here's the link to my recipe page. The extra Bulgarian recipes are under the Bulgarian heading.

In December 2018, I published a 20th anniversary 2nd edition of Bulgarian Rhapsody, or Bulgarian Rhapsody 2.0.

If you want to buy a copy from Amazon, you can still do that... see below, but you can also buy Bulgarian Rhapsody 2.0 directly from me through PayPal.

It's $20.00 + $4.00 for S&H, shipped Media Mail, for a total of $24.00 USD. Alternatively, I can ship Priority, for a total of $27.00 USD.

Just click the right PayPal Buy Now bottom below.

$20.00 + Media shipping = $24.00, US orders only

$20.00 + Priority shipping = $27.00, US orders only


You can also buy Bulgarian Rhapsody through Amazon.com by clicking the box below. To buy from me directly, look for the seller mother_linda. I can even autograph it for you. Just send me a message through the Amazon.com messaging system or send me a separate email after you order.

If you would like me to consider one of your family recipes for publication on this Web site and possible inclusion in an updated revision of Bulgarian Rhapsody, send it to me at: momlinda, then the @ symbol, followed by motherlindas.com
