FAMOUS SLOVENIAN TRADITIONAL BAKERY
Of course you all know, that lately our little and lovely Slovenia became more popular...one of the reason is because Melania Trump, the First Lady of the USA, is originally from Slovenia, more exactly, from the little town on the Sava river, called Sevnica.
And maybe you have heard that during Melania and Donald Trump's visit to the Vatican, First Lady was talking with Pope Francis about our POTICA (pronounced poh-TEET-sah)!!!
Slovenians are having POTICA for special occasions or holidays. Slovenia, it’s a small country, but it’s very diverse, as well as its cuisine. Recently, I went to discover how to make a pottery for this traditional bakery, because without this pottery you can't make a real POTICA !!!
Somebody, who has already worked with a clay will know, that this not an easy pottery model to do, but our potter, Mr.France Kremžar, who keeps the old tradition of pottery making in a little village of Komenda not far from Ljubljana, did it in 5 minutes. I am a witness :)
I propose you to see the process. During this video you can't see me, but you can hear my voice and my Slovenian )
Welcome to Slovenia to discover the old Slovenian traditions!
