Potica Challenge

Sunday, March 29, 2009

Among many local traditional culinary dishes, delicacies and delights, the Slovenian POTICA is quite unique in that it is shared in its basic form and ingredients by Slovenians from all corners of Slovenia. It forms an essential part of all major festivities and as such it remains a distinctive and enduring symbol of our Slovenian national identity and a reminder of our home country - Slovenia. For the Potica Challenge interested individuals are invited to form teams of three to five people led by a team captain (usually the most experienced potica practitioner). Each team prepares two poticas for the Potica Challenge. On the day of the event, all local Slovenians and their friends are invited to the judging at which samples of the poticas are available for tasting. The poticas are numbered, sliced to determine texture and appearance and then cut into test pieces for the both the judges and the audience to sample. At the judge's table, a second set of poticas, numbered identically to the first set is placed whole in front of the judges. After the judging is finished the winners receive their awards and the festivity begins. The Potica Challenge is planned for some time in the spring of 2009. If you would like to enter a team, please contact a board member.

In 2008 we had 9 teams

In 2008 we had 9 teams entering the potica challenge. Each team entered 2 poticas. I tasted a piece of each potica and it was a delightful experience.  Would you be interested in entering the potica challenge in 2009?  Why don't you give it a try.
