Basic information

The tradition of šokol - a dish prepared with dry-cured pork neck in the region of Nin, reaches back to the 17th century. To this day, the tradition is going strong, so much so in fact, that each family is said to have its own recipe for this tasty dish, and it is this variety that has given the rise to the organization of this delectable manifestation. Preparations for the competition begin in January with the treatment of meat. The competition is accompanied by a hot atmosphere resembling that of the biggest sporting events, culminating with the presentation of the Šokol-maker of the Year award and tasting of the food prepared. Strictly guarded from the outside world, the Šokol Fiesta is a unique opportunity to try this autochthonous dish.
