Cake workshop - Hrapoćuša
Baking traditional island cake Hrapoćuša
Our trip starts with a short drive to Dol; a charming and harmonious little village, situated in a valley, 2 km from the sea, showing a true island ambiance. Old stone houses with roofs made of stone slabs, built on rocky hill sides; the local mix of nature and tradition emanating everywhere around. Around Dol there are several little old-Croatian churches, the most interesting one being the St. Peter's church with the oldest bell on the island. The village has been proclaimed an eco-village, and attracts numerous visitors. Besides the already mentioned details, the village also nourishes the traditional recipe of the Hrapoćuša cake, a protected cultural good of Croatia, its ingredients making it the aphrodisiac of Brač. The cake is unique for its unusual and rustic appearance. It is named after the reddish coarse (hrapav: the Croatian for coarse) stone used in Dol in building of dry-stone walls, living and farming houses.
After visiting Dol, we continue towards social facilities of this place where you will see a short movie about this cake. After the end of movie it’s time to roll up your sleeves, and to try to prepare your own cake Hrapoćuša by recipe from the old women from Dol. With detailed instructions of one of them you will bake your cake. Breaks are planned for a little conversation and a local snack. Let's go!
