Things to know about Gibanica Recipe

Gibanica is a cheese pie you haven’t experienced before. It’s popular all over Serbia and the Balkans. One Slovenian priest in 1828 described it as “a must in Serbian weddings but it is also served to workers after a long day”. Traditional Serbian recipes are a combination of Turkish and Austrian influences and this dish is no different. The word Gibanica originated from the word “gibati” which means to roll or fold. It can be served with milk or yogurt but it doesn’t need to be tasteful. Serbians eat it for every occasion and it can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. It can be made with different types of cheese but cow’s milk cheese is the best. Fun Fact: largest gibanica ever was made in Mionica, Serbia in 2007 and it weighed over 1000kg.
