The locals of the mountain villages have developed a true tradition of smoked trout. This method is used to conserve the meat of this fish, and the result is very tasty.
The recipe from this region is unique because of the wood chips mix made by beechwood, pine cones and juniper berries. This flavors ennobles the trout putting it in the real unique products sphere.
Valeputna takes further this tradition, as a tribute to the first trout stream from Romania, founded here in 1896.
Here in Valea Putnei was invented the local delicacy named Cobza: smoked trout made with beechwood, covered with fir branches and walnut twigs. Besides of the fact that it’s a traditional way to prepare the trout, cobza has also a history behind it. The story tells that cobza was invented in 1927 for the Royal Castel from Poiana Itcani (in Valea Putnei), upon the coronation party of King Mihai.
