From the chef:
Hey folks, I am so excited to contribute to the multicultural gastronomic scene of Detroit by presenting some of still-popular Serbian and Balkan traditional dishes.

The food of South Serbian region is a mix of Turkish, Bulgarian, Macedonian, Greek and Central-European cuisines, which were adapted by the local communities according to their needs, habits and religious customs (Serbian Orthodox and Muslim). Still-popular traditional dishes generally use fresh, cheap ingredients –primarily vegetables– that can be found in local markets and backyard gardens. Sweet or hot peppers, onion, tomato, dock / chard leaves, rice and walnuts were, in years gone by, found on the kitchen table every day. The dishes are usually very spicy and hot, with fresh, garden grown chili peppers commonly served as a side dish.

Our menu for this event is the following:

1. 'Sopska' salad – the most popular salad in the Balkans
(Tomatoes, cucumber, peppers, onion, feta cheese, oil)

2. Roasted peppers, marinated (photo 1)
(Peppers, garlic, parsley, salt, oil, vinegar)

3. Battered roasted peppers (photo 2)
(Peppers, eggs, flour, salt)

4. Bean 'pâté' with garlic (photo 3)
(Beans, paprika, salt, oil)

5. Bean stew with smoked pork ribs (photo 4)
(Beans, ribs, onion, carrot, paprika, black pepper, bay, salt, oil)

6. 'Sarme' - stuffed chard/dock leaves served with Greek yogurt (photo 5)
(Chard/dock, mixed minced meet, rice, onion, paprika, black pepper, salt, oil)

There will be some gastronomic surprises for sure ;)
All the dishes can be found in Traditional South Serbian Cookbook.
