The Best Flavours of Jablanica

In Jablanica City Park on Friday, September 14th, the first manifestation “The Best Tastes of Jablanica” was held – a competition in the preparation of traditional dishes from the rural areas of the municipality of Jablanica. Through the competitive spirit, the objective of the event is to present the potential offered by the municipality of Jablanica, especially its rural areas, and to present the diversity of products and the use of domestic products in the preparation of traditional dishes.
