That Amazing Orange Wine!
When we arrived in Slovenia Professor Yasha graciously arranged for us to have a fantastic meal at Manna. There was some confusion about what was included with the meal, but our table of diners wanted to try some local wine. When we started the usual deliberation (red or white?) our waiter offered us orange wine--which I thought was a joke. No joke. It looks like cognac in a glass.
The meal at Manna was delicious. This was my first opportunity to taste horsemeat (though I may well have eaten it before without knowing). This preparation of foal cheeks was smoked, so it was salty and in separated strings, like pulled pork, and added as an accent to the dish.
More about orange wine, and a festival to celebrate!
