Serbian Cuisine Prepared by the Serbian Community

Indulge yourself in a range of exotic foods that will have your taste buds tingling at the festival. Enjoy some of Serbia’s most delicious foods and experience a small portion of Serbia’s finest cuisine. Below are some of the favourite delicacies that will be available for purchase at the Serbian Festival in Calgary.

Chevapi (Minced Sausages)

This little tongue-twister is one of the first words a foreigner learns upon arriving to Serbia! Ćevapčići are meat fingers made of minced beef and veal, infused with spices and grilled to perfection.

Roasted Meats (pork and lamb)

After the meat is washed, cleaned and seasoned liberally with salt, it is roasted whole on a spit and enjoyed with lepinja (home-meade bread) and salad.

Serbian Cookies and Sweets

Enjoy a great assortment of Serbian homemade cookies and sweets. Enjoy homemade quality in our delicious and satisfying cookies made with love for sweets. They all taste as good as they look.
