on the day of bitter orange
Associations Desa-Dubrovnik and Dubrovnik orange organized the manifestation “Day of bitter orange”, which was held on Candlemas in Luza premises on February 2nd 2015. Our goal was to contribute to the celebration of St. Blaise and promote Dubrovnik bitter orange and products made from it, such as jam, arancini, various cookies and cakes. Also this year this action had a humanitarian character – collected 10,500 kuna for the treatment of our severely injured fellow citizen Pavo Hađija.
You could have tasted the oysters from Ston, and according to the old tradition from Dubrovnik, oysters were served just with bitter orange. Most of the revenue was raised from the sale of sweets with bitter orange made by reputable Dubrovnik hotels: Excelsior, Rixos Libertas, Hilton Imperial, Importanne Resort, Valamar La Croma, Neptune Hotel, Grand Hotel Park, Hotel Petka, and pastry shops and bakeries: Babin Kuk, Ana, Galeta, Dolce Vita and Pupica. We take this opportunity to heartily thank to all of them..
