Petra is in the role of student, she learns little secrets of preparation, how and why this recipe originated right there and met a place, its specifics, people and stories.
Inspired by tradition, events and natural beauty of the places she visited, Petra returns to her kitchen, where she prepares a new variation of traditional sweet.
