Good Food Festival started today with its rich programme and will last until Sunday, October 22nd. One of the numerous special events is surely a workshop called ‘Hello Tereza!’’, that explained everybody interested how to prepare vegetarian brunch or dinner.
Workshop host was Tereza Poljanic and it was held at Tourist Information Centre Pile. The host was energetic, sweet and talkative. She encouraged people to meet and talk, as well as to help her and learn something new. All the visitors got the chance to try soka and banana cake and honestly – it was delicious!
It’s good to know that Tereza is a communications graduate, certified vegan chef and an expert on healthy eating. She graduated from the Matthew Kenney Culinary Academy in Los Angeles and she currently lives in Auckland, New Zealand. She is the author of the blog ‘’Teresamisu ̋, two cookbooks and the host of ̋Zdravo, Tereza! ̋ (or ̋Hello, Tereza ̋), which is broadcasted on the popular Slovenian television channel Pop TV.
Tereza admits that she is completely in love with healthy eating. She never counts calories and she makes sure that she only consumes ecologically grown, high-quality foods that give energy and provide wellbeing. Her most popular dishes are red vegetarian burgers with crispy potatoes, flour-less green pizza and her rich vegan chocolate cake with a creamy glaze. She is currently exploring Dalmatian and Dubrovnik cuisine. Her workshops are presented in a way that can be a starting point for anyone who wants to find their own healthy culinary identity.
She will have another workshop tomorrow, also in the Tourist Information Centre Pile at 5 pm. This one carries the name ‘’Fermentation, the new ‘’super-food’’. If it will be good as this one, it’s well worth a visit.
