January 4, 2020 – Top Croatian chefs Hrvoje Zirojević, Braco Sanjin, and Ivan Pažanin will cook for Wolt Split from Tuesday, January 5, until Sunday, January 10, with all proceeds going to Petrinja earthquake victims. 

Jutarnji List reports that in cooperation with and the Foundation, the Split chefs, with colleagues Stjepan Vukadin, Soniboj Grgin, the Kadena restaurant team, and volunteer chefs, will cook delicious and creative dishes that can be ordered online through the Wolt delivery service.

This is a unique opportunity because, while enjoying this gastronomic treat, you will directly help those in the Sisak-Moslavina County area affected by the Petrinja earthquake.

“It is important to develop a system that will work, and we want to be sure that the money will go to the right hands. Because the Croatian Civil Protection Headquarters’ decision has temporarily closed restaurants to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and we are unable to serve and consume food in our facilities, we are therefore quite limited. Sincerely and from the bottom of our hearts, we want to contribute to the affected areas, respecting all measures and recommendations of the Civil Protection Headquarters. We have found a solution and hope for a great response and positive reactions,” said Braco Sanjin.

Thus, every day from noon to midnight, you will be able to order their famous pasticada with gnocchi and other traditional dishes that they did not want to reveal just yet. There will also be pasta and risotto according to their recipes, and the price of each dish will be 60 kuna.

Numerous small and large local entrepreneurs, family farm owners, butchers, fishers, bakers, chefs from all over Croatia, olive oil producers, spices, retail chains, and associations, as well as winemakers from all over Croatia, responded to this laudable action. Each guest who orders four dishes will receive a small token of their gratitude and a bottle of wine.

“We would like to point out that all funds raised from this action will be paid into the crisis account of the Foundation and Fund 5.5 with Petrinja and Sisak Moslavina County and by mutual agreement redirected to the neediest families for the renovation or construction of their homes,” revealed chef Braco Sanjin.

This is just the beginning of their wholehearted and selfless action to the Sisak and Petrinja area victims, and they are already thinking of new action to help the way they know best – by cooking!

“This way, we want to emphasize that we sympathize with all the families who lost their homes and lost their loved ones in this great tragedy, and that united, both in all the misfortunes that have befallen us together and for good, we are all moving together towards a happier and brighter future in 2021. Many thanks to everyone who participates and who will participate,” concluded chef Braco Sanjin.
