A permanent collection about the food culture of
the people from the area of Libeliče is set up in the renovated old kitchen at
the Libeliče Parish House. Visitors will experience a time when kitchens were
still covered in black soot and smoke. The older inhabitants of Libeliče still remember
the chimney-hearth and the open-hearth kitchens, as they were still in use in
some places after World War II.
A reconstruction of an old parish kitchen with an
open hearth, a brick oven, and various wooden kitchenware and pottery are on
display in the former kitchen. Through these, you will learn about the
traditional ways of preparing food in the area. More information, as well as
recipes of the delicious dishes once prepared by the housewives of Libeliče can
be found in the Libeliška Kuharica cookbook, subtitled "So You Won't Leave
the Table Hungry". The subtitle speaks of the kindness and hospitality of
the inhabitants of Libeliče.
