Bulgarian Wine or Rakia
Bulgarian spices and herbs
Chubritsa (Summer Savory) Чубрица - herb with a very distinct flavour used in many Bulgarian dishes, especially the famous Shopska salad.
Sharena Sol Шарена Сол - Literally means colourful salt and is a popular spice mix here in Bulgaria, made up of salt, paprika and chubritsa although these days often other spices and herbs are added. Surprisingly tasty sprinkled over a slice of toated bread with some olive oil or over your 'sirene' (white cheese). It is often presented in a little dish along with some fresh bread when visiting a Bulgarian home as a welcome gesture. The guest breaks off a piece of bread and dips it into the salt mixture.
