About this tour

Greetings, I am Vesna, an enterprising gastronomy enthusiast with a deep love for spending quality time in the kitchen, crafting various culinary delights. My family holds a special place in my heart, and I take pride in bringing them together for freshly prepared meals. When I’m not creating in the kitchen, I find solace in expanding my knowledge through my ever-growing personal library. There’s nothing quite like savoring a morning coffee while diving into the pages of a good book – the written word has a profound impact on me, and I cherish moments of tranquility.

Among my cherished kitchen activities, kneading dough stands as a favorite, offering a sense of relaxation like no other. For over a year now, I’ve been wholeheartedly devoted to the art of making sourdough bread, inspired by exceptional bakeries from around the world. The process of nurturing a sourdough starter from scratch and naturally fermenting the bread, sans additives or yeast, fills me with pure affection. Each sourdough loaf becomes a daily motivation and an enjoyable challenge.

Initially, my sourdough bread was reserved solely for my family. However, after receiving requests through my Instagram profile, I felt compelled to share this culinary treasure with a wider audience.

Experience the art of baking sourdough bread and relish the pleasure of savoring homemade goodness.

Should you find yourself in Ohrid, I extend a warm invitation to join me for a delightful cup of coffee and an engaging conversation. I’d be thrilled to share my sourdough journey and the baking process while you sample some of my delectable creations.

As you sip your coffee and indulge in “mezze,” my homemade sourdough bread will be accompanied by the renowned locally produced “makala” (garlic, asparagus, and artichoke spread), and may include “ajvar,” “ljutenica,” and cheeses from our esteemed local farmers.

Our rendezvous will take place outdoors, overlooking the serene beauty of the lake.

As an Ohrid native, I’d be more than happy to guide you towards your next adventure and the best spots in town for savoring traditional Macedonian cuisine.

“It would be my honor to meet you and toast to a unique tour.”

Now, let me highlight some of the reasons why indulging in sourdough bread is a wise choice:

Digestion: The fermentation process in sourdough breaks down gluten and complex carbohydrates, making it easier to digest, especially for some individuals.

Nutrition: Sourdough is rich in beneficial bacteria and yeasts, which promote gut health and enhance nutrient absorption.

Lower glycemic index: Thanks to the fermentation process, sourdough bread boasts a lower glycemic index compared to other bread types, ensuring steadier blood sugar levels.

Longer shelf life: The natural preservatives produced during fermentation grant sourdough bread an extended shelf life, ensuring lasting freshness.

Ultimately, sourdough bread emerges as a healthier and more delightful alternative to its conventional counterparts. Savor the difference!
