Probishtip hosts eighth ‘Grandma’s Greens Pie’ contest

Probishtip's annual Grandma's Greens Pie baking competition was held for the eighth time at the town's main square.

Shtip, 23 March 2019 (MIA) – Probishtip’s annual Grandma’s Greens Pie baking competition was held for the eighth time at the town’s main square.

Local participants were joined by teams from Bulgaria and Serbia in baking the traditional regional pie filled with greens.

Around 3,000 people attended the event.

Visitors saw experienced home bakers make pie dough from scratch, roll it out, fill it with various savory greens, and bake it under hot ash covered by vrshnik, a traditional metal baking lid.

Slices of warm pie were available for purchase at stands decorated with traditional motifs.

Proceeds of over 1,000 euro raised at the event will be donated to socially disadvantaged families and health-compromised people. mr/16:28
