“This is a classic. In Romanian you'd call it Mamaliga cu Branza. Branza/turos is a kind of cheese you can only find here in Romania. It's a soft, strong tasting cheese that's like a mixture between feta and ricotta. That's what I'll suggest for American cooks. If you can get branza burduf use it. This is great wih marinated red onions on top.”
