At the event of lighting the second Advent candle at Gastroadvent Split, an unique event that is a promoter of the Mediterranean diet and is a combination of nutrition gastronomy and tourism, marking the 10th anniversary of the inclusion of the Mediterranean diet in the list of intangible UNESCO heritage, project MD.net – Mediterranean Diet presented the second in a series of five innovative food products, by the schools involved in the project.
This time, the high school Supetar from island Brač presented itself with its student cooperative "Lumbrela" an unique product called "Ka'nonina" - salsa with “varenik” (long-cooked grape sauce).
The students of the student cooperative "Lumbrela" came up with the idea to make the Brač tradition innovative by looking for inspiration "Nona's kitchen", which was the basis for an innovative upgrade of the whole story about salsa with “varenik”.
What makes this product special and innovative is precisely this addition - varenik, which under the name "Brački varenik" received the European protected designation of geographical origin, and is made of reduced wine must, and gives dishes sweetness and special taste, and is an indispensable ingredient of Brač cuisine, including this innovative food product called "Ka'nonina".
The whole innovative idea and story about salsa with “varenik” was designed by students of Supetar High School, who worked together through the MD.net project to put the whole idea into action and thus greatly contributed to the promotion of their student cooperative "Lumbrela", as well as innovative food products based on Mediterranean principles.
