European Recipes

SOS Children's Villages Romania

European cuisine is comprised of the cuisines and cooking styles of continental Europe, Eurasia, and the Mediterranean islands.

Although the cuisine of Europe varies greatly depending on place and culture, there are some common styles of cooking found throughout Europe and Eurasia. Meat, for example, is more prominent [steak in particular is a European favorite], sauces are important as seasonings, and dairy products often take center stage. Of course, wheat-based products are also important -- it's hard to imagine European cooking without pasta!

Our SOS Mothers across Europe regularly make these recipes for SOS children, and thankfully they’ve passed them along so we can share them with you!
