Csíkszereda Musings

My life in and around Csíkszereda, also known as Miercurea Ciuc.

Uninteresting miscellany

Posted by Andy Hockley on 13 December, 2007

Just discovered through a friend that the Romanian Orthodox Church in London (which actually exists inside another church called St Dunstans) is led by the marvellously named Father Pufulete. A pufulete is a kind of repulsive puffed corn snack that dissolves into dust in your mouth. They are very popular in Romania for some unknown reason (though it is quite amusing to put a couple in your mouth and then say “pufulete” since it occasions hilarious amounts of corn and additive dust exploding into the air around your mouth).

Just in case you don’t believe me: Romanian Orthodox Church in London (scroll down about 1/3rd of the way on the left hand side under contact details). Pufuleti (that’s more than one pufulete) as reported upon by Sean Romerican, sadly no longer with us (he’s not dead, just living in Texas, which to an non-Texan sounds almost worse).
