Preparation of "Lojena Banitsa"


Lyubimka will show you the technique of preparing Lojena Banitsa or ‘stretched’ banitsa, which they prepare for weddings, christenings or family parties. This banitsa is important for the wedding ritual and is used to invite the best man. It is also used for a ritual for the bride and groom before the wedding. On the Monday morning after the wedding, the mother-in-law tells the bride to make Lojena Banitsa to show how good a wife she is! You are welcome to try from the Lojena Banitsa, and if you would like to make it yourself, Lyubimka will teach you.
