Contest for Burgas Lakes T-shirts04/04/2011
The hall of the Strandja Nature Park Directorate could hardly accommodate the 30 participants mainly from Malko Tarnovo, and also from the Villages of Brushlyan, Zvezdets, Tsarevo and Sinemorets. The training comprised 4 modules – making of soap, making of creams and other cosmetic products, praline chocolates and candy. The theory was followed by a more entertaining part where the participants could, in 4 groups, try the Norwegian recipes – they poured soap in silicone molds, mixed creams with Strandja scents (Manov honey, Crimean tea, essential oils and local infusions). Everyone had the opportunity of getting ‘smeared’ with chocolate or of mixing a cosmetic cream.
