Ljubo hits the carpet in Sarajevo
For the first time in his life, 40 years-old Ljubomir Stanisic was invited to cook a dinner in the city where he was born. On August 17, the most-Portuguese-Yugoslav chef and chefs Manuel Maldonado and Salar Kayhan, of 100 Maneiras, joined by Ljubo’s friend, chef Hugo Nascimento of Tasca da Esquina and Peixaria da Esquina, signed the gala dinner hosted by the 24th edition of Sarajevo Film Festival. The meal, promoted by Coca-Cola, one of the festival’s partners, brought together many personalities of national and international cinema.
Around 90 guests tasted the creations of Ljubo and company, in a four-course tasting menu prepared with the collaboration of chef Neso Grizelj, of the Bosnian restaurant Zlatni Lav. For this special event, Ljubomir chose to take some of the most emblematic flavors of Bistro 100 Maneiras, such as the Beets’ me salad (with roasted beets, sheep’s cheese, basil and wasabi mayonnaise and citrus gel) and Cheese foam with guava, the signature dessert of the house, as well as new creations such as the Fish fillet with bulgur and shellfish sauce and Roastbeef with béarnaise sauce, mushrooms and low temperature egg.
The dinner happened one day after the awards ceremony of the prestigious film festival, when Ljubo was one of the guests of honor, stepping for the first time on the “red carpet” (who knows, the first of many :))…
This is the second time that Ljubomir is accompanied by the team on a trip to his hometown. In the end of 2017, the Yugoslav chef and part of the 100 Maneiras team spent about a week in Sarajevo, researching local products and traditions, for the development of the new 100 Maneiras restaurant, which is planned to open in the last quarter of 2018.
