What is the St. Sava Serb Fest?
The St. Sava Serb Fest is an annual event organized by United City Church. It is a celebration of Serbian culture, traditions, and the Orthodox Christian faith. The festival aims to bring together individuals and families from all walks of life to experience the rich heritage of Serbian customs, delicious food, and vibrant music and dance.
Who are the lamb guys?
The lamb guys, also known as "jagnjicari" in Serbian, are an integral part of the St. Sava Serb Fest. They are a group of dedicated individuals who specialize in preparing and roasting succulent whole lambs on a spit. Their culinary skills and expertise are showcased during the festival as they create mouthwatering dishes that are enjoyed by festival-goers.
The tradition of roasting whole lambs goes back centuries in Serbian culture. It is a symbol of community, hospitality, and the joy of sharing food with others. The lamb guys take great pride in upholding this tradition and ensuring that the lamb is cooked to perfection, resulting in tender, flavorful meat that melts in your mouth.
The History and Significance of the Lamb Guys
The tradition of the lamb guys can be traced back to ancient times when roasting whole lambs was a common practice in Balkan communities. Lamb roasts were often associated with celebrations, feasts, and religious events. This tradition has been passed down through generations, preserving the vibrant cultural heritage of the Serbian people.
For the lamb guys, preparing a whole lamb is not just about cooking a meal; it's a labor of love. They meticulously select the finest quality lamb, marinate it with a combination of herbs, spices, and olive oil, and slowly roast it over an open flame. The process requires patience and precision, with the lamb guys carefully monitoring the cooking time and temperature to ensure that the meat is tender and juicy.
During the St. Sava Serb Fest, the lamb guys become the center of attention as they showcase their culinary talents. Festival-goers eagerly line up to savor the delectable lamb, which is often served with traditional Serbian sides such as kajmak (a type of cheese spread), ajvar (roasted red pepper spread), and lepinja (a round bread).
