One of Croatia’s largest culinary festivals brings 4 days of fun and great food.
If you’re a foodie, then Supetar on island Brač is the place to be, since the 11th edition of the utterly scrumptious culinary festival Biser mora (Pearl of the Sea) started on April 7, 2016, and it will continue until Sunday, April 10.
Before you roll your eyes and say here’s just another gastro presentation like so many other ones popping up across Croatia, here are some facts. 11th edition brings together professional chefs and students from 20 countries and for the first time, the opening was organised on the Riva in Supetar at 13:30. Chefs will be cooking around the clock with the first ever 24-hour cooking competition and since all proposed categories were filled with contestants months ago, we will definitely be witnessing some great performances and, of course, memorable dishes coming to life before our very eyes.
Biser Mora is not just about food, it is also about getting to know the micro-location and its customs so all visitors will be able to participate in various bike tours across the island, exhibitions, themed nights, visits to wineries on the island and an unforgettable trip to pustinja Blaca.
Svpetrvs Hotel Group will one again host the festival, much to the satisfaction of both the management and head chef Ivica Katić:“ We are delighted to host this event again this year. We have tried our best to be good hosts and considering that the number of participants and visitors is growing, we would like to think that we helped in the creation of the brand that „Biser Mora“ has become. As a company that accents the vast eno-gastro offerings of the island, it is very important for us to see so many distinguished professionals in our hotels each year since they are the ones who create global culinary trends and Brač and Dalmatia are becoming a must-visit destination for ll lovers of great food“ Katić commented.
Biser mora is open until Sunday, so make sure you plan a visit to the beautiful island Brač. It’s just a short ferry ride from Split and well worth the trip. And if you need a reminder what to do while you’re on Brač, here’s Total Croatia News 25 things to know about Croatia’s tallest island.
