Krushari, a scenic village in the fertile plain of Dobrudzha, is getting ready for the first ever Spring Grains for Abundant Winter festival, which will take place on 17 September in the park of the village. 

The concept is to popularize ethnography, folklore and rural tourism opportunities in the area. People from Krushari have prepared a very interesting programme. On site, members of different ethnic groups will cook the most characteristic dishes of their culture in the spirit of the festival - corn cakes, live sourdough bread, Turkish baked flour halva. Guests can taste ashure with wheat, corn, chickpeas, dried broad beans, walnuts and dried fruits.

Guests can taste an authentic ashure recipe made with wheat, corn, chickpeas, dried broad beans, walnuts and dried fruit. Meanwhile, amateur artists from the local community centre will recreate the Belenka (corn husking) custom and prepare mamaliga(a porridge made out of yellow maize flour), the most common food on the Dobrudja table in the past.
