another day trip. this time to the oldest city in slovenia, ptuj. (pronounced patoy) another worry if the sun will come out or not. you aren’t too fond of playing the “will it rain today or not” game.
is your only reaction. it is that good. you aren’t good at writing about food (after all, you’ll just use words like delicious, warm, perfect, etc). but hopefully the photos speak for themselves.
again, for dessert. warm roasted figs. stuffed with walnuts. in a sweet wine sauce. with rosemary ice cream. with an intense chocolate truffle.
life is good.
and you made it the whole day with no rain, although it seemed like it was going to happen any moment.
you are indeed the luckiest visitor to slovenia ever. because the sister of your host surprises you and makes gibanica, the most famous of the slovenian desserts. layers of cheese, apples, phyllo dough, walnuts, poppy seeds, rum, butter…..
