Caraway Brandy
Secărică (Caraway Brandy)Landon Nordeman

In Transylvania, it's not unsual to be offered a shot of homemade brandy as a gesture of hospitality upon arriving at a home or guest house. This one has a spicy caraway flavor that balances nicely with the rich walnut cake, Chec Cu Nuca. This recipe first appeared in our March 2012 issue with Alexander Lobrano's article Eternal Terrain.
