“Something tasty with a carrot” – taste the unique traditional Bulgarian food
This unique festival is dedicated to vegetables. Also, it is organised only in Bulgaria and will have its 18th edition in Zlataritsa. With it, the city honours its Gurbetchii gardeners, with the help of whom the local church and school were built. In the past, every year, 600–700 people went on gurbet, but they came back and helped with the common affairs.
This year, Tsar Zelenchuk will be the carrot. Therefore, the organisers from the Municipality challenge all future participants to prepare a garden or vegetable soup of their choice. Applications for participation in the Municipal Administration are now being accepted; the deadline is August 25.
Bulgarian food is a culinary delight that reflects the country’s rich history and diverse cultural influences. Traditional Bulgarian food is made with fresh, locally sourced ingredients that give them an authentic taste. Bulgarian cuisine features a variety of dishes, including hearty stews, grilled meats, and savoury pastries. The use of herbs and spices such as paprika and parsley is common in Bulgarian cooking, adding to the flavour profile of these dishes.
Sharing meals with family and friends is an important part of Bulgarian food culture, making it more than just about the food itself. It’s about coming together to enjoy each other’s company while savouring delicious meals.
Over 1000 purebred animals – sheep, goats, dogs and horses, will be shown at the upcoming National Festival of Sheep Breeders. The ninth edition of the largest industry event in Bulgaria will be held from 18 to 20 June near the Petropavlovski Monastery near Lyaskovets.
