Dear readers, dear friends,
It is with great pleasure that I introduce to you this collection of traditional recipes encompassing all 27 countries of the European Union.
The tradition of the breaking of bread has been connecting people for centuries. Sharing a meal with our families and friends is the occasion of happiness common through all cultures. When we selected the recipes for this book with the Ambassadors to Mongolia, we wanted to bring Mongolians closer to the European Union. On the pages of this book we are sharing with you a piece of the cultural heritage of the European Union. This cookbook is a celebration of community, friendship and diversity that make the European Union so unique.
My hope is that in this book you will find new favourites to share with your family and your friends, to celebrate many moments of joy and that you will have a culinary adventure to the countries of the European Union.
Ambassador / Head of the Delegation of the European Union to Mongolia
