Recipe adjustments

Not certain as to why User:Constantinoprea increased the bacon to 200g and removed the garlic (the recipe does state: whilst the following is a guideline, you can add whatever ingredients are in seasona guideline, which I feel covers this adequately without the need to remove ingredients.

I have reverted the ingredients and quantities and added mamaliga as a link, which I will shortly complete unless someone beats me to it.

Hi there, so sorry to be a pain but this is not your typical romanian bean soup recipe. Your recipe is merely for a bean stew let alone soup. I've been living almost all my life in Romania and i can tell you for sure that the most popular and widely accepted recipe differs from yours. Romanias like myself would know this but since the article is read by so many worldwide readers ..i find it a bit misleading. Over here , we would call your recipe a variation of the bean stew. Anyway, just wanted to let you know. Have a great day

Thanks for your input, feedback like that helps us to improve as we certainly don't want to mislead our readers. However, the article does clarify that it is just a starting point.

Would you have a recipe that you would consider more appropriate or could you point us to a more authentic recipe? That would be very helpful.

You an even add one yourself if you wish.

Do please let me know.

Kind regards --Jerry, aka Chef 12:42, 5 October 2012 (BST)
