Serbian cooking class in Belgrade may be the best way to taste this budding city!
Start your Serbian cooking class with grocery picking at farmers market with your host Vlad. Taste the fresh seasonal produce right from the stalls. Have a savory snack at an old school bakery.
On your way to Vlad’s kitchen, you will briefly walk through the heart of old town Zemun. The Serbian cooking class takes place at a family home of real Belgrade people, with a tucked-in green garden!
The cooking happens in the garden when the weather is nice, or inside a funky and comfortable kitchen in winter or on a rainy day.
For the start you get an appetizer, the famous Serbian meze of charcuterie, kajmak (the most delicious milk fat cream) and ajvar (roasted peppers delight) and rakija (a strong spirit made of plum).
Then you roll up the sleeves!
In the next two hours you will chop, squeeze, shape, bake, taste, shape, cook, decorate, serve, eat and drink. By the end of the Serbian cooking class you will be able to prepare a complete meal! Including the favorite dessert from granny’s cookbook.
Serbian salad is a warm up exercise. You chop the fresh local veggies, add some delicious local cheese that you have grated and learn the right proportions to make the perfect dressing.
The star dish is ćevapčići. This is one of all time favorites of our cuisine.
You’ll learn how to make a perfect proportion of beef and pork. You will mold those perfect little batons with your own hands! And then you get to grill them, like a pro.
