Poretači #36 Senka Pajić – Ispeci pa Reci/Beograd

Senka Pajić, dramaturškinja po obrazovanju i veteran advertisinga, je pre skoro dve godine pokrenula jednu od mojih omiljenih Beogradskih poslastičarnica: Ispeci pa Reci. Sa Senkom sam pricao o njenom putu do poslastičarstva, o manje slatkim delovima posla i o tome kako je pokretati posao kao majka malog deteta.

How to Bust Post-Holiday Blues in Belgrade

Although I love Summer (and especially late Summer) in Belgrade, coming back from holidays is always a shock, especially if you have to immediately go to the office. All the golden, calm feeling of chilling at the beach, hiking or just doing something  different can quickly disappear, to be replaced by the seeping anxiety of returning to the glum daily grind and all the problems you … Continue reading How to Bust Post-Holiday Blues in Belgrade

The Sweet Torments of Krsto Radovic

Since opening three years ago, the Mandarina cake shop has developed something of a cult following among Belgrade’s foodies. The lust for their colourful, irregularly shaped cakes and crunchy croissants occasionally results in small queues forming in front of this smartly designed shop in Gracanicka, a short hop from Knez Mihailova. Behind it all, is the sibling duo Kamelija Radojcic and Krsto Radovic, and years … Continue reading The Sweet Torments of Krsto Radovic

Pokretači: 2.03 Burek Stankoski, Pančevo

  Sada već kultni burek Stankoski sa kolenicom, kiselim kupusom, piletinom i gorgonzolom ili četiri sira, privlači ljude širom regiona u Pančevo. Iza ove prelepe kombinacije starog pekarstva i savremenih ukusa stoje Svetlana i Danilo, čiji put do “viralnog bureka” je krenuo od gubitka posla, vodio preko dugih meseci učenja pekarskog zanata i, posle medijske pažnje, doveo do još napornijeg svakodnevnog rada da se mušterijama … Continue reading Pokretači: 2.03 Burek Stankoski, Pančevo

Sarma, Testicles and Kid-roasts: Rural Serbia’s Real Foodies

The global foodie trend made urbanites in Serbia more conscious about their consumption, and even inspired some of them to try their hand at making healthier, or at least, tastier food. In Belgrade, there are now numerous events devoted to producers of anything from Serbian truffles to Serbian tabasco. Although there are some misfires, Belgrade’s Cheese festival, Night Market and Wine Jam constantly deliver a … Continue reading Sarma, Testicles and Kid-roasts: Rural Serbia’s Real Foodies

Pokretači 1.17. Burger House Beograd

“Ako uspete u Srbiji, možete uspeti bilo gde drugde” Braća Mirko i Stefan Lazar Larazervić su ljudi iza, po mom mišljenju, najbolje hamburgerdžinice u Beogradu: Burger House-a (FB, Instagram). Pričali su o tajnama iza njihovih preukusnih burgera, ne samo o sastojcima koje brižljivo biraju i često prave sami, već i kako su se od svojih početaka u 2013. marljivo i promišljeno bavili izazovima ugostiteljtva u … Continue reading Pokretači 1.17.

Best of Belgrade 2017: Haute or not?

The fancier – the worse, still seems to be the rule with restaurants in Belgrade, but the quality and diversity are increasing Somewhat increased standard of living translated in many high-end places popping up last year, but sadly the pretence did not translate into quality, although it certainly provided enterntainment. I thought it could not get worse when I read that a restuarant offered an … Continue reading Best of Belgrade 2017: Haute or not?
