Varza a la Cluj


Varza (cabbage) a la Cluj is a dish made famous in Romania's second city of Cluj-Napoca. It's a traditional evening meal and, although it may not sound that appetising, it's surprisingly tasty. A mixture of beef and pork mince, cabbage, onions, rice, and passata is layered and baked in the oven to produce something that looks like lasagne but doesn't have the artery-clogging cheesiness of the Italian classic. It doesn't sound good but it's fabulous.
