Regardless of your faith, there’s one thing we can all agree on: holidays that bring together family and involve good food. So for this special Easter episode of Feel Slovenia the Podcast we’ve focused on the culinary traditions around this, the most important of Christian holidays.
It’s a very special episode, too, as our host, Noah Charney, chatted with five different people to bring you a broad array of thoughts about Easter. This included a pair of curators at the Slovene Ethnographic Museum, Nena Židov and Anja Jerin. You can visit that museum next time you’re in Ljubljana. He also spoke with Janez Bogataj, the leading expert in Slovenian ethnography and culinary heritage. He’s the author of many books, several of which Noah and his wife translated. He chatted with Špela Vodovc, author of the hit cookbook, Cook Eat Slovenia, and a tour guide here. And finally, you’ll get to meet his 80-year-old grandmother-in-law, Mama Tončka.
What are the key components of an Easter breakfast and what do they symbolize? What’s the story of one of the most famous Passion plays in Europe? Tune in to find out!
