Cultural Experiences Through Food: Serbia
While showroom 101-b hosts an exhibition arranged by the embassy of Serbia, today Sakura-Tei Restaurant hosted a Serbian cuisine workshop.
It began with a presentation to give everyone a basic understanding of the country from which the food we were about to prepare came from.
Serbian Embassy vice-consul Nemanja GRBIC and embassy secretary Tijana NAGATO were our lecturers, and both presented in traditional Serbian costume! They welcomed the bombardment of picture-taking visitors and were extremely kind.
Then it was on to the workshop with the crafting of authentic Serbian cuisine.
Our challenge was sopska salata, a Serbian salad, meatloaf known as pljeskavice, cornbread called proja and crepes (palacinke), concluding with a Serbian wine tasting.
We had to form a waiting list after receiving a surge of enthusiastic applicants, and, as you can see, participants were thrilled with the experience!
A big thank you to event sponsors: the NPO’s International Artists Center and the Serbian Embassy in Japan.
