CROATIAN FOOD AND WINE FESTIVAL IN AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND


The 'Croatian Food and Wine Festival' will be held in Australia and New Zealand. The festival, organised by Chef Dennis B. Valchich, will first be held at Sydney's Intercontinental Hotel from April 28 to May 2. The festival, which has been held for the past four years and has become an annual tradition, is a most important date in the Australian Croatian community calendar.

The event will be held in top hotels throughout major Australian cities, namely in Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne and Perth, as well as in Auckland, New Zealand. Thirty authentic Croatian dishes - desserts, entrees, salads and a variety of main dishes from all Croatian regions - whose recipes are published in Valcich's English language 'Croatian Cookbook', will be presented for inquisitive Australian taste-buds.
