Fifth culinary “Motalskiya prysmaki” festival hosted guests on the 12th of August

On the 12th of August the tastiest event – culinary festival “Motalskiya prysmaky” - hosted guests in the village of Motol (Brest region, Ivanovo district). This festival was not only a wonderful chance to enjoy local cuisine but it was also a 590th anniversary of the village. In terms of the festival Belarusian Association “Country Escape” organized “Motol readings”* dedicated to Belarusian traditional small settlements called “mestechko” – a round table where experts and historians shared their opinions and discussed the potential and future of such places. It goes without mentioning that Motol is one of them. Afterwards everybody could fully appreciate local delicacies – sausages, salamis, fish, pastry and so on. Nobody could remain indifferent. Creativity of locals could be seen in every detail – decorations and arrangements from sausages, fish, vegetables and buns and rolls. It was too tempting to stay calm and come home without bringing some local tasty food. The festival was visited by honorable guests – Ambassadors of Israel, Estonia, the Ukraine, Russian Federation, representatives of UNESCO. And of course lots of tourists crowded round counters as Motol hospitality and culinary traditions have already become unique brand.

 *The event was held in terms of the project Leveraging Partnerships for Sustainable Development in Rural Belarus Project’ which is supported by the European Union and Eurasia Foundation (with funding from the U.S. Agency for International Development).
