Ajngemahtes – chicken soup with vegetables and liver dumplings

There are over 2000 varieties of soup in the world, and ajngemahtes is Zagreb's.

This must-try soup of Zagreb cuisine is rich in freshness and flavour. The best ones are made by grandmothers, and luckily, there are still a lot of grandmothers around. Make you own ajngemahtes and don't forget to invite your grandmother. To congratulate you, of course...

I like Lisinski very much. It was very intense to perform there, because people came, listened carefully and felt the music in their hearts. Lisinski is a beautiful concert hall, and I am very honored to be performing there. I have wonderful memories of my first performance in Lisinski.
