Advent is just around the corner. It is filled with traditions, magic, stories, and special foods. In Slovakia, the authentic essence of Advent is still alive in age-old practices, rituals, and traditions. Far from the hustle and bustle of commercial Christmas, Advent in the heart of Europe is an enchanting affair. The season literally sparks with magic.
Join us to explore the spirit of the season, its mesmerizing customs, and delicious food! This event consists of a webinar and a live virtual baking class. We will bake the iconic vianočka together.
Join us on Saturday, December 4th at 8am Pacific Time / 11am Eastern Time / 5pm Central European Time.
Join us and our special guest Lenka to recreate a piece of your Christmas culinary inheritance from Slovakia in your very own kitchen.
About our special guest Lenka
Lenka was born and raised in Slovakia. She remembers helping her mom and grandma run around the oven ever since she could first hold a kitchen tool in her hands. Mixing, whisking, licking out the many bowls, while kneading, filling, baking, and most of all, cherishing the seasonal ingredients and turning them into delicious pastries and cakes.
Whether as an eight-year old standing next to her grandma, or today sharing those very same recipes with people from all around the world. Lenka is the founder of the culinary blog Wandering Senses and a teacher of baking.
Let's explore the magic of Slovak Advent together!
We very much look forward to seeing you!
