All the aliments are 100% natural.

Victuals against the Invaders

The event is an original continuation of an old habit, by the time when people used to take refuge in the 272 chambers full of victuals within the Prejmer Fortress against the sieges of the invaders. ?Rumour says that the inhabitants used to pick up a fat woman that they perch on the citadel walls, with a big bread in her hands. The woman showed the Turks the bread than her naked bottom, taping on it. The gesture was meant to confirm that the besiegers had plenty of supplies. Thenceforth, the housewives have theirs larders full?, says Cristina Balog, the citadel?s curator.
