Signature Dish

Welcome to Kempinski Hotel Zografski to discover the unique tastes of Bulgaria brought together with an artistic touch!
Our Signature Dish: Roasted St George’s Day Lamb with a Traditional Shopska Salad.

St George’s Day Lamb, prepared by our Executive Chef Andrey Stoilov according to his grandmother’s recipe, is complemented by the authentic “drob surma” prepared from lamb liver and rice and Rhodope Mountain capes mushrooms crowned with Bulgarian yoghurt mint sauce. It is also garnished with a traditional Shopska salad – a wonderful and fresh mix of sliced cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers and onion and topped with grated sheep cheese.

“This typical national dish embodies the culinary traditions of Bulgaria relating the tastes and lifestyle of a whole nation,” says Andrey Stoilov. “We went through dozens of suggestions until we decided on the authentic lamb recipe. It combines ingredients of the best quality, it is popular, easy to identify – easy even to prepare and has its own story!”
