The countryside of Savinjska will surely delight you with the offer of the best local meat products, dairy products and autochthonous specialties of domestic production, among which the central role on the Slovenian culinary map is attributed to Zgornjesavinjski želodec, top-quality, geographically protected dry meat product.
Taste the traditional dishes of the Upper Savinja Valley:
- solčavski sirnek, spicy, ripened cheese cured for several months,
- ubrnenik, wheat, buckwheat or corn balls, which are excellent in sour milk,
- ajdnek, a delicious delicacy from buckwheat dough, minced walnuts and honey.
- zdrkanka a good breakfast idea, wheat grains seasoned with butter, dried plums and cinnamon cooked in milk.
Taste tradition on one of many tourist farm or local markets
Some argue that food is the best medicine. The countryside of Savinjska and Šaleška valleys are perfect for the composition of a tasty dish, with a plethora of ecologically produced goodies. On tourist farms they serve meat and dairy products and other indigenous specialties of domestic production. Domestic products and delicacies are also available at the Velenje city market every Saturday from 8am to 1pm and at the farm market in the ground floor of Bohačevega toplarja in Nazarje.
