Continental Croatia is well known for the wealth of variety of its cuisine. Each small town has its own traditional recipes and a way of preparing individual dishes. The residents of Vrbovec present their traditional gastronomic offer in late August within the manifestation appropriately called What Our Forefathers Ate. Those are the days when the entire town is simply awash with mouth savouring aromas of traditional dishes prepared with a great deal of care and love so as to ensure they remain a delicious memory on one’s palate. The folk of Vrbovec compete in cooking the best traditional dishes. Visitors keen on competing themselves can do so in a number of sports on offer. Others can enjoy the music programme which is also available.
