First course dishes occupy an honorable place in the national cuisine. The choice of soups is so rich that both vegetarians and meat lovers will easily find dishes that suite their taste. Fans of vegetable dishes should not forget to order watercress salad soup, and fans of fish dishes will be delighted with soup with tuna. Many first course dishes are so hearty that they can easily replace a complete meal. It should be noted that local chefs use not only vegetables, fish and meat in the preparation of some first course dishes, but also fruits. Slices of pears and other fresh fruit make local soups even more original.
When it comes to meat dishes, marinated rabbit remains the undisputed leader here. The preparation of this dish has already transformed into a kind of a ritual. First rabbit meat is marinated with various spices and herbs, and then it’s cooked in clay pots. Sturdy potatoes boiled in salt water are traditionally served as a garnish for the meat. The potatoes look very original because during the preparation their peel is covered with tiny crystals of salt.
