Event website

Learn how to cook Croatian with Eva Mrak as she pays homage to her Great Grandma Marica.

Roll up your sleeves and learn to cook like Grandma. Join Eva as she honors Marica’s recipes (though she never actually measured anything) and learn how to make knedle start to finish! You’ll make Croatian Cottage cheese dumplings from scratch. While you cook, enjoy tastes of Sarma (Croatian stuffed cabbage rolls), and a favorite Croatian cheese.

Throughout the weekend, hear stories of how these dishes came to be, how they have evolved, and other family food lore. Welcome drink included. Beer and wine available for purchase.
