Tour guide: Ivana Gospodnetić from family Gospodnetić of Kaštil Gospodnetić
Ove ćemo godine naglasak dati na vino – jednostavno, domaće, posve nepretenciozno vino. Moja obitelj proizvodi ovaj slatki nektar već deset generacija i vino nam priča priču o ljubavi, obitelji i životu. U kratkoj šetnji pokazat ćemo vam naše omiljene kutke Dola, malog otočkog mjesta u kojem živimo. Tijekom posjeta našem domu, dvorcu starom 400 godina, kušat ćemo vino i sve što je s njim povezano – rakiju, kvasinu i prošek te ćemo imati malu radionicu u kojoj ćemo učiniti nešto “neoprostivo” – miješati vino s vodom.
This year we will focus on wine – simple, homemade, totally unpretentious wine. My family is making this sweet nectar for 10 generations and to us, wine tells the story of love, family and life. In a short walk, I will show you my favourite places of Dol, a small island village where we live. While visiting my house, a 400-year-old castle, we will taste the wine and everything connected with it – rakija, kvasina and prošek and have a small workshop where we will learn how to do “unforgivable” – mix wine with water.
#2 Cooking class of cake Hrapoćuša
- 4 hours
- 8 people max
- Includes: finger food, and – the cake tasting
First, we will walk around the village, learn about its history and the importance of the cake for this village. Then we will go back to my kitchen and bake the cake.
In the meantime, we will try cheese, prosciutto and anchovies, some wine, hear some stories of my family, and then, when it is done, taste the cake, and eat it.
Dol, a village settled in the quiet valley of island Brač, tells the story of Hrapoćuša –the story of the stone, the story of the cake. The love story.
Hrapoćuša celebrates love as a wedding cake – beautiful, rich cake full of texture made out of simple ingredients: walnuts, sugar, flour and eggs.
It resembles the stone with the same name, and that is why they have both named Hrapoćuša.
Every woman in Dol knows how to make it, and every family has a little secret. For centuries is the symbol of special moments and it represented both rich and poor villagers, with the simple ingredients with rich flavour.
SECRET OF GOSPODNETIĆ MARTINOVIĆ – about us
I still remember the first time I tried the cake, I was nine and it was late spring. It was time of the year when summer colours appear and warm air smells like flowers. There was a celebration in our family salon, many people walking by, laughing and talking, and I wandered around them amazed with food and nice dresses, seeking a place to be alone. And, then I saw it on the table, golden coloured, so different from everything I saw before.
There is something about this cake, something that makes you remember the first time you saw it, the first time you tasted it.
