A Mosaic of Flavor: Bosnian Herzegovinian Sarma and Kuglice, Wednesday, January 14, 6-8:00PM Edmunds Middle School, Burlington

In January, we will be preparing Sarma, a traditional stuffed cabbage dish popular in Bosnia-Herzegovina.  Cabbage leaves are stuffed with a seasoned mixture of rice, ground beef and pork, laid on a bed of sauerkraut and simmered to completion.  We will also learn to make Kuglice sa suhim vocem, a healthy no-bake cookie made with dried fruit and spices.  A professional caterer, Davorka will share all her secrets for making these two delicate and tasty dishes.  Davorka Gosto came to Vermont from Bosnia-Herzegovina over 20 years ago.  She feels blessed to be one of two daughters raised by a mother who trained and worked as a professional cook in Mostar.  Davorka has written a cookbook, From Mama's Kitchen: Cuisine of Herzegovina, which will be for sale at the class.
