September 26, 2023 – This weekend will mark the beginning of an entire Month of Baranja Cuisine. This delicious event will last from September 30 to October 28, and will take place pretty much wherever you go in Baranja.
As SiB writes, this weekend, on 30th September, the second month of Baranja Cuisine is starting. The project opens the doors of Baranja to all fans, and who isn’t, of Baranja cuisine and those who want to learn the skills of preparing authentic Baranja dishes.
Famous Baranja chefs, guardians of tradition, and connoisseurs of Baranja cuisine will perform their art at picturesque locations in Baranja.
On the first day of the event, on Saturday, September 30, the host is Stipo Golubov from Gajić. He will introduce visitors to the preparation of mutton stew. On Sunday, October 1, chef Šandor Juhas will open the doors of his yard in Zmajevac, where he will cook chicken stew and trganci (fresh pasta).
BAranja Cuisine Workshops
For the duration of the Month of Baranja Cuisine, workshop participants will have a unique opportunity to make use of their “Recipes” notebooks and note all the secret ingredients and dishes with unusual names. Our favourites include catfish perkelt, turos teszto, glupani, trganci, and zavezanci. Other fish, meat, and vegetarian delicacies will also be presented, all with tips and tricks from chefs Baka Bela from Kopačevo and Boban Đurić from the Society of Friends of Baranja Antiquities – Šokačka House in Topolje.
In Čeminac, chef Stipe Dumančić will lead a workshop for all ‘repeaters’, on the preparation of the world-famous Baranja shepherd’s stew (čobanac). A month of Baranja’s gastronomic hedonism will be beautifully rounded up in the luxurious courtyard of chef Kristina Perković. She will close this exciting gastronomic month with her royal veal under the peka!
The organizers of this event include the tourist boards of Bilje-Kopački rit, Baranja, and Draž. The project is financed by the Croatian Tourist Board.
