Abstract:

The Romanian heritage is very rich in traditions, rituals and superstitions associated with kitchen utensils and tools, as well as with the preparation of various foods and dishes, most of them unknown to a large segment of the population nowadays. The process of preparing a certain dish is a ritual in itself, with clearly established rules and steps. The aim of our paper is to reveal the ritualistic values of some Romanian kitchen tools and utensils as a statement of the vast national intangible heritage. Our broader aim is to promote, at an international level, aspects of Romanian cultural life from the visible and invisible Romanian cultural heritage. The research methodology combines methods of cultural and ethnographic studies: literature review and field survey.

Keywords:
