Serbian day: The plot of TAXI BLUES and the menu of the typical dinner

Taxi Blues (2019) tells the romantic and entertaining story of Marko, a not very successful playwriter that must drive a cab to make ends meet. Once the young Damir escape from the orphanage, he gets into Marko’s car to search for his natural father. The chaotic and turbulent first meeting marks the start of a series of crazy but great adventures. Miroslav Stamatov is a Serbian director and screenwriter who debuted with the short-film Dobro poznata stvar (2002) and worked for the realization of A Serbian Film (2010) by Srđan Spasojević. But what about the dinner? A buffet full of traditional Serbian food awaits us after the vision of the movie. We will have the possibility to taste very particular dishes like the beloved čorba, a veal soup served as first course, we will then enjoy gibanica, a savory pie made of cheese, cream and eggs (usually tasted paired with a beer), and also Ćevapčići, Pljeskavica, Sarma and Burek, of course, a puff pastry filled with meat, spices or sweet cheese. Now, we can only hope you will enjoy it!
