Little cooks have fun with chef Mate Janković

Well-known chef Mate Janković recently had the chance to cook with 11 children from SOS Children's Village Croatia. After two hours of fun, games and cooking tips, our children mastered the art of baking Christmas cookies.

The chef was very patient with his young pupils and he talked at length about his culinary tips and tricks.
In addition to their cooking lessons, children also learnt how to make scented soap. They thoroughly enjoyed the process and the homey atmosphere of the workshop, which made them feel safe and warm. Providing love and security is the primary goal of SOS Children's Village, whose co-workers put their heart and soul into looking after children without parents or parental care, regardless of their race, ethnicity or religion. They provide children with permanent home and education necessary to have a happy and peaceful childhood.
“Thank you in advance to all the people who have the wherewithal to help the children in SOS Children's Village Croatia, either by leaving presents at the Academy or making a donation at our web page, www.sos-dsh.hr” – said Ljiljana Varga, SOS Children's Village Croatia corporate fundraiser.
The event called The Christmas Table will take place on the premises of the Wine & Gastro Academy in the Kaptol Center in Zagreb, and it will run until Saturday, December 10. The program will offer many free workshops for children and adults. On Thursday, December 8, we will be making Christmas table decorations between 6:00 and 7:00 PM, and later that evening, between 7:00 and 8:00 PM, we will run our cooking workshop. On Friday, December 9, we invite you to make Christmas soaps with us at the workshop called Soapmania, taking place between 6:00 and 8:00 PM, and to join us at our cooking workshop, between 7:00 and 8:00 PM. On the last day of the event, Saturday, December 10, we will be making Christmas tree ornaments between 10:00 and 11:00 AM and holding our cooking workshop between 11:00 AM and noon.

All workshops are free and will take place at the Wine & Gastro Academy, located on the first floor of the shopping mall.
