Global efforts for sufficient and healthy food are gaining new dimensions. Discovering and learning about foods and beverages opens the door to local and regional cultures, economy, people’s daily routines and festivities as well as their spiritual creativity. All this goes hand in hand with efforts for sustainable development, for nature- and people-friendly ways of producing and consuming food.
The Forum of Slavic Cultures introduces to the map of the world the culinary traditions and gastronomy of the Slavs, a wealth of diversity which is to shape the culinary diversity of the world along with the already established gastronomic traditions.
The first world monograph AT THE TABLE WITH THE SLAVS presents, in one comprehensive volume, selected characteristic dishes of thirteen Slavic countries: Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Macedonia, Montenegro, Poland, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia and Ukraine.
Through the rich tradition of culinary cultural heritage with recipes for three selected dishes representing each country, this first joint presentation of Slavic culinary art in the world with exceptional photographs and short introductions to the gastronomy and culinary tradition of each country reflects the similarities and differences that distinguish the Slavic culinary identity and the identity of more than 300 million Slavs across the world.
