The Dep is delighted to welcome back Ksenija Hotic and her fabulous Bosnian specialities. A classic dish across the Balkans, cabbage rolls (Sarme) are stuffed with meat, rice and spices wrapped in pickled cabbage leaves. As someone of Eastern European descent, I can tell you that these babies are as good as they get.
Made with beef, lamb home-smoked by her father, and whole cabbages pickled by her mother, these amazing slow-cooked cabbage rolls are the real deal. 3 sarme with homemade Bosnian bread (maslenica) & sour cream
Add a side of mixed cured and smoked beef (basturma) and homemade pickled garden veggies salad
Homemade walnut baklava – as delicious as it sounds
Ksenija Hotic‘s involvement with food starts in Bosnia in her grandmother’s kitchen and her father’s foraging trips in the woods. It leads through Berlin and all the way up to the Toronto Underground Market, where she is part of the team behind this innovative showcase for alternative culinary talent. An enthusiastic gardener, foodie and photographer, Ksenija is combining her love for cooking and her family’s heritage for this dinner of traditional Bosnian recipes.
