AJVAR “BAKINA TAJNA”
Ajvar is a fragrant pepper paste that goes well if served with soft cheeses and pork to name but a few or simply spread onto a slice of bread for any meal. Ajvar can be sweet or spicy representing ‘a queen’ amongst the winter salads. It tends to be a staple food in the family meals and/or feasts of almost any sort throughout the year no local seems to be able to do without.

BUBBLE TEA KNEDLA

FLAME FURNITURE STOOL
Serbian designers Flame furniture are producing and designing stunning furniture made of solid wood, but also other materials such as concrete or steel. Their catalog is full of genuine pieces of furniture, but our favorite is definitely a painted wooden stool, that can also serve as a table.
