Learn how to make traditional Slovenian sweet roll potica with Jana Štrumbelj - owner of the brand Le Potica
Hands-on workshop on preparing traditional potica from scratch, while debunking myths that potica is difficult to make.
Potica is the pearl of Slovenian culinary heritage and the pride of Slovenian households. To be considered a real Slovenian, they say you have to climb mount Triglav and (if you are a woman) bake potica at least once in your life. The process of making potica includes such specific, ceremonial preparation and requires our grandmother’s careful selection of ingredients so a myth has formed over the centuries that baking potica is very difficult. Almost like climbing Triglav. But is it really?
Janja Štrumbelj, owner of the brand Le Potica and a long term journalism lady turned professional potica baker (hey, does this change of career sound familiar? Read Iva’s story too!) will prove that potica baking can be especially fun as well as instructive. She’ll equip you with traditional preparation knowledge, reveal the secrets of successful baking and help you bake your own potica too, of course.
