This event was organized so as to commemorate the Harvest Festival, which is celebrated all around the world, under different names, such as Thanksgiving Day etc. For this occasion, a large amount of organic fruit and vegetables grown on the estate was donated to a soup kitchen with the Serbian Orthodox Church in Belgrade. This event was organised by Lisa Brown, the owner of the estate and the president of SPES.
After Lisa Brown welcomed the guests, Robin Fox, an Anglican priest in Belgrade, made a speech. He reminded everyone of the significance of charity and helping those in need, and then read a prayer of gratitude for the successful harvest.
The guests later relaxed while sampling delicious, quality wine, chosen by attending wine knights.
Lunch was prepared by many professionals and enthusiasts, because the menu consisted of four been dishes and various salads. Four teams fought to win over the guests and get the “Best Bean Dish” award: valjevsko-šumadijski, sembersko-fruškogorski, bosansko-krčedinski and krajiški. The manifestation was part whimsical, part competitive, with a goal to have a good bite to eat and even better fun.
The teams had professional help in the form cooking school students from Novi Sad. Their engagement at the event was rewarded with recipe books with specialties from all over the world.
The merry atmosphere of the event chased away the clouds over Krčedin, and the entertainment was made complete with song and tamburica music.
