2:d International Junior culinary cup

To be part of the international junior cup in Kragujevac Serbia was a very nice experience and pleasure thanks to Pedja Filipovic and his GastroMag team but also my great friends Uros Urosevic, Nikola Bisevac & Aleksandar Ilic.
Junior chefs are our future and we all have to help out to educate them and to push them forward to new goals in the culinary world.

The Kgastro competition with young chefs from all around the Balkans showed a great fighting spirit and very high ambitions with big eager to learn more all the time, thanks to all the chefs for making this a great event.
To be invited as the head judge and to be able to invite other judges as Miroslav Kubec CD Europe central, Svetlana Riskova president in Latvia,
Alexander Prokopovich from Russian Association, Bengt Sjöström from Norway, Gary Filbey from UK, Pero Savanovic Croatia and Veselina Slavcheva from Bulgaria,
thanks to all of you for all the feedback to the compeditors and good job over all.

 I am looking forward to next years competition and I hope to invited again to continuing the educational step towards culinary excellence for all junior chefs.



Macedonia part 2

The city of Ohrid must be one of the least known cultural city’s in the known world, just amazing how old this city is and how important the historical heritage are still around every corner, just amazing and should be on everybody’s must do list if you are interested of old time European history and especially if you are from the Balkans.

 So many beautiful places to see here and the blue Ohrid lake is crystal clear and perfect for swimming.

The lake has its own famous fish and that is the Pastrmka (trout) and you can find this at expensive prises in every restaurant in town, unfortunately is the quality of cooking very poor and I would not recommend this to anybody.

Put on your walking shoes and discover this old city, It is worth wile.
