08 August 2019 - The traditional manifestation Days of Healthy Food from Durmitor 2019, organized by the Centre for Culture of the Municipality of Žabljak with the support of the local tourist organization, was launched in Žabljak on August 7th and will last until August 9th.
After the exhibition of paintings, which was held on the first day of the manifestation, as well as the exhibition of healthy food (second day), where the products of local farmers and dishes from homemakers who live in Durmitor were exhibited, this event ends August 9th with a tasting of kačamak and priganice (local dish similar to donuts) on the Black Lake shore.
Visitors of the first two days of the manifestation were able to enjoy bread baked under the sač, pies, fried dough, various types of cheese, greens from Durmitor fields, blueberries and raspberries, juices, homemade brandies and many other products which were displayed at the Cultural Centre in Žabljak. The area of northern Montenegro is already recognizable for its traditional cuisine, which involves preparing organic food in a traditional way, and this was confirmed yet again at this year’s event.
This event has become a tradition that gathers many exhibitors and attracts a large number of visitors who can taste the highest quality local food from Žabljak. The tradition will surely be preserved and continued according to the organisers, who could not hold back their praise for the housewives who have invested a great deal of effort in preparing the displayed dishes.
The aim of this manifestation, which is being organised for the sixth year, is to promote Žabljak as a tourist destination.
Tomorrow, on August 9, a tasting of kačamak, a traditional Durmitor dish, will be held on the Black Lake shore, starting at 3 pm.
