The Dep is proud to invite back Ksenija and the rest of the Hotic family for another fantastic foray into the heart of Bosnian cuisine and culture. These amazing feasts have sold out every time we’ve hosted one, so book your spot ASAP!
Basturma & Sujuk
Homemade cured & smoked meats by Ksenija and her father, alongside pickled veggies from the Hotic garden. These will be served with Maslenica, a traditional bread broken up at the table for sharing.
Sarme & Maslenica
A classic dish across the Balkans, cabbage rolls (Sarme) with stuffed minced and smoked meats, rice and spices, and wrapped in homemade pickled cabbage leaves.
Ćevapi with Lepinja
Ćevapi – a delicious grilled meat dish that is something of a cross between a hamburger and a sausage – are considered a national dish in Bosnia and are common throughout Eastern Europe. These will be made of beef and served on lepinje (traditional flatbread) and side fixings of ajvar (roasted red pepper, garlic and eggplant spread), chopped onions and kajmak (creamed Balkan cheese).
Delicate baked sweets made with thin, buttery phyllo pastry, walnuts and honey, the Bosnian version is outrageously delicious.
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 core 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.
