The first R'n'B Weekend awaits all gourmands and fine wine lovers. In addition to the attendance of competent professionals, the catering and gastronomic scene will also present their best work.

The first R'n'B Weekend Zagreb (Restaurants & Bars Weekend) will take place in Glyptotheque of the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts from 23 to 26 May. The festival targets all lovers of fine dining, beverages and coffee, and it is designed as a combination of a conference, a fair and a festival which promotes excellence in catering and food and beverages production.

In addition to lectures of top culinary experts, famous Michelin star chefs and excellent baristas, the first R'n'B Weekend will also host workshops, tasting events and a world championship of the Barista League, we could say; which means lots of fun moments for visitors. Saša Šestić, the winner of the 2015 World Barista Championship and the head of the Origin project which gathers green coffee manufacturers, has announced his arrival. The same is true for Scott Rao, a leading consultant in the coffee industry and the author of numerous books on coffee preparation and roasting.
