For the upcoming holidays, for the fifth year in a row at Ban Jelačić Square, Zagreb Mayor Milan Bandić and his associates shared cod. This year, as organized by the City of Zagreb, 10,000 portions of cod were prepared by the City of Zagreb institution Dobri dom.

For 10 hours, citizens at Ban Josip Jelačić Square patiently waited for the stands to be opened, where the holiday cod was distributed free of charge. With the arrival of Mayor Milan Bandić, who himself shared the cod, the traditional get-together began and no one left hungry. While the delicious cod was being distributed, the director of the City of Zagreb institution Dobri dom, Alen Župan revealed to us a recipe for the cod to be prepared:

“More than 1550 kg of cod, of which 700 kg of dried cod, 700 kg of hake, 3000 kg of potatoes, more than 100 litres of wine and 70 litres of olive oil, 20 000 rolls and several days of patience, were necessary for our staff to work on this we all look forward to Christmas at the beautiful Zagreb Square. ”

And the citizens who, along with the cod tasting at Ban Jelačić Square, also brought a portion of the cod to their homes, were satisfied with the quality of the prepared meal and announced that they are coming to the holiday gathering again next year.

The distribution of cod was carried out for the first time in bio composting vessels and spoons. The City of Zagreb and the Dobri Dom Institution thus contributed to the preservation of the environment. This will be a practice in similar activities of the Institution relevant to the City of Zagreb and its citizens.
