On Monday and Tuesday, 18th and 19th March, Šibenik will become the main gastronomic center of the world. 95 domestic and foreign chefs, 45 domestic and foreign journalists and fooedies from all over the world will be part of the largest regional gastronomic conference - Chef's Stage.
The event starts on Monday at 10:30 on Barone's Fortress, followed by Marendin, which will be, among other things, performed by famous Ivan Pažanin.
Through interesting masterclasses, panel discussions and six impressive gala dinners, the best chefs will present their dishes and point out the importance of local food sustainability.
Rudi Štefan, owner of Pelegrini, the best restaurant in Croatia, is responsible for organizing this event. He points out that Croatia has top-quality foods, so he has decided to introduce Croatia as the top gastronomic destination at several locations in Šibenik.
This year's Masterclass theme is "baklava" on Visovac, trout on Krka, and daily catch and mussels on ship, while gala dinners will take place in Pelegrini, St. Krševan Gallery and Šibenik Theater.
Thirty winemakers will also be participating at Chef's Stage, and all workshops and panels will be held in Solaris.
