Being on the same latitude as Piemont in Italy, having favourable climate conditions and abundant forests, Buzau County has excellent conditions for the growth of truffles. Truffles can be found from June to January in the forests of Buzau- depending on the weather conditions of each year. Truffle hunting needs a lot of experience, knowledge of local places and special trained dogs.

There are only very few truffle hunters in Buzau and truffles are generally not commercialised, but mainly used for own consumption or culinary events.

Tuica mortala din Chiojdu“Tuica mortala” (mortal plum brandy) is a local brand registered at the Romanian trade mark office OSIM and produced by Tata Lice, a guest-house owner in the village of Chiojdu. The plum brandy has been matured for more than 10 years in oak barrels and has – despite his name – a very mild and extraordinary taste.
