Bulgarians often eat salad for appetizer, shopska salad being the best known. They use some philodeig and make banitsa and börek. Pita is also used a lot and huge amounts of yogurt are eaten.
The main courses are often power-based casseroles, either vegetarian or with lamb, goat meat, veal, chicken or pork. They grill a lot, preferably sausages or pork mixed with veal or lamb. They also use a lot of fish and chicken. Cattle are mostly bred for dairy farming and not meat, but grilled veal is popular for appetizer (meze) and in some main courses.
Bulgaria shares many dishes with the Middle East, Turkey and Greece, including moussaka, gyuvetch, kyufte and baklava. They also have their variant of feta, which is called siren and which is used in salads and several types of pastries.
