Gastronomy - Bulgaria
Torta Garash (Bulgarian: Торта Гараш) is a palatable cake and one of the most famous desserts in Bulgaria. It consists of five delicate walnut sponges layered with dark chocolate. The whole cake is then covered in a glistening chocolate icing or creamy ganache, and it is decorated with walnuts, desiccated coconut, sliced almonds or chocolate ornaments. Torta Garash was created by Kosta Garash, an Austro-Hungarian confectioner. In 1885, he was working at a lavish hotel in the city of Ruse, where he first served the cake. Later, Garash went to Sofia and this impressive cake soon became a popular Bulgarian dessert. Nowadays, Torta Garash is part of the menus of numerous pâtisseries and restaurants all over the country.
