Get to know the traditions and stories of the Slovenian Easter Holiday celebration. Join a live cooking class guided by the local food expert and learn step by step how to prepare Slovenian Easter eggs, just with natural dyes. Easter, the most important Christian holiday, marks the end of the fasting period that starts on Ash Wednesday. The holiday is an excuse for the Slovenian families to celebrate together at a table full of Easter delicacies. Easter eggs, called pirhi in our language, play the lead role at this time of year. They are used as a decoration no household can go without. Start collecting onion skin. There has to be enough to cover the eggs. Search your drawers for some stockings you don't use anymore. They need to be very thin. For decoration, just before the cooking class, pick various spring plants, leaves, and blossoms from a nearby meadow. The more spread out and dynamic the plant, the better the impression on the egg. Ingredients you will need 15 eggs Dry skin of red and brown onions 3 tbsp vinegar 5 rosehip tea bags A few pinches of salt Different types of grass, leaves, and flowers Thread Stockings, cut in 10x10 cm (4x4 inches) squares You will also need 2 medium-size cooking pots Sizers Butter Spice up your Easter and join Špela in this unique and fun cooking class.
