A dessert that promises to be included in the Guinness Book of Karst Records

When they presented in the village of Orehovlje these days how to prepare asparagus dishes here and in the surrounding area until the middle of the month, we cut off our ears, because the members of the Miren Orehovlje Women’s Association hope to be included in the Guinness Book. “We will bake a roulade with asparagus filling, from 7.5 meters in length,” she explained.

Culinary records with us

It will not be the first time in Slovenia that we are vying for the entry of the giant roulade in the book of records, because a similar feat was achieved eight years ago in Gorenjka with this dish, prepared with a classic filling. She measured 160 meters and weighed 500 kilograms! As we reported at the time, it was made by 12 pastry chefs over two days. They used 60 kilograms of flour, 90 kilograms of sugar, 14 kilograms of egg powder and two kilograms of baking powder. It was filled with 80 kilograms of chocolate cream and 55 kilograms of strawberry filling with eight kilograms of fresh strawberries and decorated with 30 kilograms of edible chocolate.

Many food-related records have been set in Slovenia in the Guinness Book. It contained, for example, chocolate that Čokoladnica Cukrček prepared six years ago for the Radovljica Chocolate Festival. Back then, in 2016, a tent was set up in Radovljica, in which there was a 142 square meter chocolate bar. Bograč is also in the Guinness Book of Records – in September last year this dish, weighing 1,801 kilograms, was cooked in Lendava. It’s not over yet: in the Book of Records there is a Bujta turnip, namely the one cooked by the Association for Sport, Tourism, Development and Culture of Slovenia in Velika Polana in August 2013: it weighed more than a ton! Speaking of records: Do you perhaps know where the largest Sacher cake was baked? In Ljubljana in 2016, she weighed 600 kilograms and used two thousand eggs, about 80 kilograms of apricot jam and 200 kilograms of chocolate icing!

If you want to test how the giant asparagus filling will taste: it will be baked on Saturday May 28 at the women’s club and filled a day later on Sunday May 29 between 4 and 5 p.m. Orehovlje Sports Park plans to shorten

Asparagus roulade with strawberries

The women’s association Miren-Orehovlje has prepared a mix of two spring hits wrapped in vanilla dough: asparagus and strawberries. Gordana Vičič, President of the Women’s Association, who wrote the recipe, explained to us that housewives in this part of Slovenia like to prepare such a roulade in the spring. The fragrant vanilla dough complemented the taste of strawberries, and cooked asparagus hid in the background, which also complemented the color of the sweet dish.
