Topic: The Flavors of Slovenia
Tuesday, April 13, 2021, 7:00 PM CT

There’s a lot more to Slovenian cooking than sausage and potica.
Joe will present some of the unique dishes and pastries that define the different regions of Slovenia.
The country is a crossroads culture and Slovenian menus reflect the best of Mediterranean, Alpine and Balkan cookery.
 Learn what they serve over pasta or polenta on the coast, or what to stew in the mountains, or how they like their buckwheat grits in the east.
There are also more obscure traditions. In Notranjsko you can bake a dormouse or serve a tasty turnip hot-pot in Prekmurje.
Joe will have easy-to-prepare recipes available for classic and specialty Slovenian favorites you can try at home.
 Do you have a favorite Slovenian recipe? Let us know and we'll share it.
