Janez Bogataj, PhD, foremost author and authority on Slovenian cooking and gastronomy, gave two talks on the subject at the SWUA- the Slovenian Women’s Union of America convention, held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in June 2011. He also arrived early to teach a class in making potica a walnut cake which is most well known among Slovene Americans.
Editorial Review: This inspirational new book reveals the full potential of this little-known cuisine, a fascinating blend of European and Slavic tastes. Whether one chooses to start with the smoky flavored sweet-and-sour Bean and Sauerkraut Hotpot from the Primorska region close to the Adriatic sea, or the celebrated multi-layered Prekmurje Gibanica Pie from the north east, the selection of dishes gives a delightful insight into the varied and wholesome tastes of Slovenia.
The cookbook is available at Amazon starting at $11.95.
Dr. Bogataj is a consultant and guest presentor in the upcoming food tour to Slovenia, Taste of Slovenia, which will be offered for June 2012.
