With our Harvest Festival only weeks away the Shepparton Albanian Women’s Committee are busy preparing the traditional Albanian food for sale.
By far one of the most popular dishes is baklava – layers of pastry sweetened with syrup.
Check out this clip to appreciate the effort that goes into creating this masterpiece. It makes the few dollars you pay for a piece seem cheap in comparison!
On Saturday, 28 November 2015, the Shepparton Albanian Society celebrated the anniversary of Albania’s Declaration of Independence with a function at the GV Hotel, Shepparton, Australia.
As part of the celebrations, a group of local Albanian children performed a series of dances set to traditional music.
Led by teacher Aida Zeqo, opportunities such as these work to ensure the traditions of our culture are kept alive for the next generation of Australian Albanians.
