Slatko, slatko riječno blago - Sweet, sweet river riches

Početak kolovoza je i to znači samo jedno – Ribarske večeri u Davoru! Tko nije bio, definitivno mora otići. Kolovoz je meni zapravo znakovit po više stvari. Najviše po povratku u školske klupe koji vreba iza ugla (brrr), no s tom strašnom spoznajom borim se dobrom papicom kojom kolovoz obiluje. Dakle, ekipu u auto i pravac Davor! Zašto, pitate? Zato što u tom selu na obali Save možete kušati neke od divotica koje nam rijeke naše Slavonije pružaju – fiš, pohanog soma ili šarana, no meni najdraži je šaran na rašljama. Slatki, slatki šaran koji dolaskom na stol učini da i najživahnija priča zamre, barem na tih desetak minuta dok jedino što od šarana ne ostane su glava, peraje i kosti. No, nisu Ribarske večeri u Davoru samo dobra papica i vino. Tu se mogu naći i proizvodi lokalnih OPG-ova i hobista, od kaktusa i lavande do raznog nakita ili drvenih rezbarija. Ja obično obiđem štand sa lavandom i obnovim zalihe hidrolata, a ove godine sam planirala nabaviti i nešto kaktusića i sukulenata jer imam jedan DIY u planu po pitanju toga, no u subotu, kada sam ja išla, tete sa kaktusima nije bilo. Šmrc. Sva sreća pa sam dan nakon puta u Davor, u jednom od naših poznatih trgovačkih lanaca, naišla na dobro sniženje tako da DIY još uvijek stoji na planu. Do tada, pogledajte slike iz Davora. :)

It’s the beginning of August and it means only one thing – Davor Fishermen’s Nights. If you haven’t been there yet, you must definitely go. When I think of August, I think of many things, especially the fast-approaching start of the new school year, but I choose to fight that horrific notion with delicious food August is packed with. So, get your friends or family and head out for Davor! Why, you ask?  Because it’s the place where you can taste some of the divine goodies the rivers of our beautiful Slavonia have to offer such as fish stew, fried catfish or carp, but my favourite is grilled carp. It’s cooked in a special way where a fish is cut and made into two halves, seasoned and placed on a fork-like construction made of tree branches, put over fire and slowly grilled. That sweet, sweet fish has the power to silence even the chattiest of us, at least for those ten minutes until there’s nothing else left of that fish but the head, fins and bones. But, Davor Fishermen’s Nights are more than just great food and wine. You can find all sorts of homemade items and products such as succulents, lavender products, jewellery, or wooden trinkets. I usually go over to lavender stall and stock up with lavender hydrosol and this year I was also planning on visiting the lady with cacti and succulents because I had a DIY in mind, but the lady wasn't there on that particular night. Bummer! Luckily, the next day, while I was doing my weekly shopping, I found a great discount on those babies in a supermarket nearby, so the DIY is still on. Until then, take a look at the photos I took in Davor. See ya! :)
