Macedonia has a well-developed coffee culture, and Turkish coffee is by far the most popular coffee drink. With over 5,000 units across the country, the traditional Macedonian cafe - kafana - is one of the most common places to serve a cup of coffee. However, due to negative stereotypes around kafana, many young people prefer to drink their coffee in Western-style bars.
From the days of the Ottoman Empire until today, coffee has played an important role in the Macedonian lifestyle and culture. Serving and drinking coffee had a special effect on engagement and gender habits, political and social interactions, prayer and hospitality. Although many of the rituals are no longer practiced today, coffee has remained an integral part of Macedonian culture.
Other coffee beverages, such as latte, caffè mocha or cappuccino, are becoming increasingly popular with the opening of luxury cafes. Workers and business people have contributed to the popularization of instant coffee (especially frappé).
Rakija is the traditional Macedonian drink. A very strong alcoholic beverage (50–60% alcohol),  rakija is obtained by distilling fermented fruits. Its taste is often enriched with various herbs or nuts.  Other popular alcoholic beverages in Macedonia are mastic and boza. Traditionally, white wine is consumed in summer and red wine in winter. 
NOVINI. Bulgarian Foreign Minister: "Northern Macedonia does not systematically respect & # 8230"
"The Republic of Northern Macedonia does not systematically comply with the Good Neighborhood Treaty. In recent weeks, following a visit by the Macedonian foreign minister, intense negotiations have been taking place in Bulgaria. In the last year, I have noticed a permanent and systematic non-compliance with this treaty and I am not just talking about the historical commission.
We have comments on important infrastructure projects, such as corridor number VIII, the reluctance of the Republic of Northern Macedonia to comply with the language formula. We cannot close our eyes and pretend that we do not see a breach of the treaty.
We still have a chance to agree on a negotiating framework. Skopje to use this opportunity, because not all countries are enthusiastic about EU enlargement & quotquotot; Bulgaria and Northern Macedonia must resolve their disagreements by 10 November.
"The position of the Prime Minister and the government in Sofia is benevolent, but an anti-Bulgarian campaign will not be tolerated. It would be difficult for the whole of the European Union to have open problems. And right now, there are examples that don't
they are pleasant ", mentioned Minister Zaharieva.
Bulgarian Defense Minister: "Sofia has lost confidence in Skopje"
Bulgarian Deputy Prime Minister and Defense Minister Krasimir Karakaceanov commented on the latest developments in talks between Bulgaria and the Republic of Northern Macedonia. "First of all, I would like to note the efforts of the Bulgarian Foreign Minister, Ekaterina Zaharieva, and of Germany, which holds the EU presidency, to bring the positions of the Bulgarian and Macedonian sides closer together.
I support the main findings of the head of Bulgarian diplomacy, according to which the Treaty of Good Neighborhood between Bulgaria and Northern Macedonia is not respected by the Macedonian side. As a result, Sofia's confidence in Skopje has been lost at this time due to the Macedonian party's systematic failure to meet its commitments.
I recall that, as of October 2019, there is a framework position, approved by the Bulgarian Parliament, which clearly defines the terms and conditions under which Bulgaria will support the accession of the Republic of Northern Macedonia to the European Union. No conditions in the framework position have been met by the Macedonian side, especially those relating to progress in the work of the bilateral historical commission, which has been virtually unilaterally blocked by the Skopje government.
It is completely unacceptable for me for North Macedonia to receive support for the start of EU negotiations,
without Skopje's clear recognition of the Bulgarian roots of modern Macedonian language and history after 1944. I do not think that at this time Bulgaria has guarantees from Northern Macedonia on the implementation of the August 2017 Treaty.
The only guarantee could be a written annex to the 2017 Treaty, reflecting Bulgaria's framework position and statement
Bulgarian Parliament of October 2019. Otherwise, Bulgaria cannot support the accession of Northern Macedonia to the EU, under any conditions and under any external pressure, if for this purpose the Bulgarian side will have to sacrifice its national interests by admitting to the EU. an anti-Bulgarian state ideology, inherited from the communist Yugoslavia and unfortunately maintained with all efforts by the current government in Skopje & ampquot, said Minister Karakaceanov.

In the history of Romanian culinary literature, Costache Negruzzi and Mihail Kogălniceanu were the compilers of a cookbook "200 tried recipes for dishes, pastries and other household things" printed in 1841. [ 2] Also, Negruzzi writes in "Alexandru Lăpușneanu": "In Moldavia, at this time, fine food wasn't fashioned. The greatest feast only offered a few types of dishes. After the Polish borș, Greek dishes would follow, boiled with herbs floating in butter, after that, Turkish pilaf, and finally cosmopolitan steaks ". 
Cheese has been a part of Romanian cuisine since ancient history. Cheese is the generic term for cheese in Romanian it is originally a Dacian word. Traditional Dacian cuisine included vegetables (lentils, peas, spinach, garlic) and fruits (grapes, apples, raspberries) with high nutritional values.  The Dacians produced wine in massive quantities. Once, Burebista, a Dacian king, angered by the wine abuse of his warriors, cut down the vines his people gave up drinking wine.  Legend says that the Dacian people created their own beer. [ citation needed ] Romans helped introduce different pastries made with cheese, including alivenci, feed, or crullers. They also introduced different variations of millet porridge.
Maize and potatoes became staples of Romanian cuisine after their introduction to Europe. Maize, in particular, contributed to health and nutrition improvements of Romanians in the 16th and 17th centuries, resulting in a population boom.
For more than four centuries, Wallachia and Moldavia, the two medieval Romanian principalities, were strongly influenced by their neighbor, the Ottoman Empire. Ottoman cuisine changed the Romanian table with appetizers made from various vegetables, such as eggplant and bell peppers, as well as various meat preparations, such as meatballs (deep-fried meatballs, a variation of kofta) and sMALL (short sausages without casings, usually barbecued). The various kinds of soup / borscht (sour soups) and meat-and-vegetable stews, such as baked beans (beans), stuffed peppers (stuffed peppers), and cabbage (stuffed cabbage) are influenced by Turkish cuisine. The Romanian tomato salad is a variation of the Turkish çoban salad. Many traditional desserts and pastries combine honey and nuts, such as baklava, sarailie (or seraigli), halvah, and bullshit (Turkish delight).
Romanian recipes bear the same influences as the rest of Romanian culture. The Turks brought meatballs (meatball in a meatball soup), from the Greeks there is moussaka, from the Austrians there is the schnitzel, and the list could continue. The Romanians share many foods with the Balkan area (in which Turkey was the cultural vehicle), and Eastern Europe (including Moldova and Ukraine). Some others are original or can be traced to the Romans, as well as other ancient civilizations. The lack of written sources in Eastern Europe makes it impossible to determine today the exact origin for most of them.
One of the most common meals is the polenta, the precursor of polenta, served on its own or as an accompaniment. Pork is the main meat used in Romanian cuisine, but also beef is consumed and a good lamb or fish dish is never to be refused.
Before Christmas, on December 20 (Ignat's Day or Ignatius in Romanian),  a pig is traditionally sacrificed by every rural family.  A variety of foods for Christmas are prepared from the slaughtered pig, such as:
- Sausages - garlicky pork sausages, which may be smoked or dry-cured
- Lebar - an emulsified sausage based on liver with the consistency of the filling ranging from fine (pâté) to coarse
- blood sausage (black pudding) - an emulsified sausage obtained from a mixture of pig's blood with fat and meat, breadcrumbs or other grains, and spices
- drum (head cheese) - based on pig's feet, ears, and meat from the head suspended in aspic and stuffed in the pig's stomach
- stew - a stew made with pork, smoked and fresh sausage simmered in a tomato sauce and served with polenta and wine ("so that the pork can swim"). There are many variations of this stew throughout Romania, with some versions combining different meats, including chicken, lamb, beef, pork and sometimes even offal
- Pig alms—Pan-fried cubed pork served right after the pig's sacrifice to thank the relatives and friends who helped with the process
- Fries / cooling - inferior parts of the pig, mainly the tail, feet, and ears, spiced with garlic and served in aspic
- Greaves - dried pork remaining from rendering of the fat and tumbled through various spices
The Christmas meal is sweetened with the traditional sweet bread, a sweet bread made with nuts, poppy seeds, or bullshit (Turkish delight).
At Easter, lamb is served: the main dishes are lamb borscht (lamb sour soup), roast lamb, and Lamb tripe - a Romanian-style lamb haggis made from minced offal (heart, liver, lungs), lamb meat and spring onions with spices, wrapped in a caul and roasted.   The traditional Easter cake is feed, a pie made from yeast dough with a sweet cottage cheese filling at the center.  
Romanian pancakes, called pancakes, are thin (like the French crêpe) and can be prepared with savory or sweet fillings: ground meat, cheese, or jam. Different recipes are prepared depending on the season or the occasion. 
Wine is the preferred drink, and Romanian wine has a tradition of over three millennia.  Romania is currently the world's ninth largest wine producer, and recently the export market has begun to grow.  Romania produces a wide selection of domestic varieties (Fetească, Grasă, Tămâioasă, Busuioacă, and Băbească), as well as varieties from around the world (Italian Riesling, Merlot, Sauvignon blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, and Muscat Ottonel) . Beer is also highly regarded, generally blonde pilsener beer, made with German influences. There are also Romanian breweries with a long tradition.
According to the 2009 data of FAOSTAT, Romania is the world's second largest plum producer (after the United States),  and as much as 75% of Romania's plum production is processed into the famous plum brandy, a plum brandy obtained through one or more distillation steps. 
Vegetarianism / Veganism Edit
Followers of the Romanian Orthodox Church keep fast during several periods throughout the ecclesiastical calendar amounting to a majority of the year. In the Romanian Orthodox tradition, devotees keep to a diet without any animal products during these times. As a result, vegan foods are abundant in stores and restaurants however, Romanians may not be familiar with a vegan or vegetarian diet as a full-time lifestyle choice.  Many recipes below have vegan versions, and the Vegetables section below contains many common fasting foods.
Fertigation recipes for selected crops in the Mediterranean region | I. Papadopoulos, C. Metochis and N. Seraphides
Abstract: Fertigation increases efficient use of water and fertilizers, produces higher yields, improves quality of the production and protects environment. To ensure uniform distribution of water and fertilizers, the irrigation system must be properly designed and operated. The choice of suitable fertilizers is also very important and must be based on several factors like nutrient form, purity, solubility and cost. To implement a fertigation program, particularly under intensive greenhouse production, good knowledge is required of water and nutrient requirements over the growing season. The fertigation model developed to be used at farmers level concerns drip-irrigated greenhouse tomato, pepper, cucumber and melon. It takes into account the amount of nutrients which may be available to the crop from soil and calculates for a target yield the quantities of N, P and K fertilizers which may be supplied through the irrigation stream over the growing season.
