2 villages in 2 parts of Europe – Gorna Bela Rechka in Northwestern Bulgaria and Undredal in Norway, along the Aurlandsfjord. Gorna Bela Rechka has 80 inhabitants and twice as many goats. Undredal has a population of approximately 100 people and 500 goats.
Undredal is famous for the brown goat cheese (geitost) that is still produced the traditional way and has become part of the SLOW FOOD chain.
Bela Rechka is famous for the unique goat curd (козя извара) that every woman in the village prepares in late summer.
The cooperation between the 2 villages began in 2009 with a first visit to GOATMILK FESTIVAL by 3 Norwegian girls. Later the same year 3 people from GOATMILK traveled to the GOATCHEESE festival in Undredal.
Singing, good food and love for the nature are things that people in both villages share. What else?
The BELA RECHKA-UNDREDAL project aims to continue sharing experiences and stories between the people of both areas.
The project is developed with the kind support of Norwegian Embassy and initiated in Vienna, during an Eastern Lunch at the place of Inge-Anna Koleff
