The spiritual guide on this journey into the breath-taking nature of the Austrian Alps is Almazan Kitchen, a family project by Boban and Aleksandar Almazan that goes way beyond your ordinary cooking experience. The uncle-and-nephew team have mastered the art of outdoor cooking to perfection. Yet they are not your typical TV foodie show. As they say themselves, “It’s not only about the food – it’s about the relaxing atmosphere. That’s why we do everything slowly. No rush.”
“It’s not only about the food – it’s about the relaxing atmosphere. That’s why we do everything slowly. No rush.”
The videos of the two are more of a therapeutic tool for modern weary souls – though you won’t hear any banter in them, the sound is a vital part of why Almazan Kitchen stories are so soothing to watch. They have the power to teleport you immediately to a beautiful place out there in the country and let you chill as you watch their great culinary skills. Their craft is beyond this world, yet still down to earth – the biggest inspiration for their cooking is nature itself. Seeing their meals cooked over an open fire will make you hungry for the food and the forest.
This is why ŠKODA and Almazan Kitchen have teamed up to prepare this short series about cooking in the wild. Enjoy it and check out the recipe below for pork slow-roasted the Almazan Kitchen way!
PS: There will be something for fish lovers and vegetarians in upcoming episodes.
