. . . Welcome to the web page of the club for lovers of tripe - 'TRIPERI', based in Rijeka, Croatia. Due to the large number of visitors and the interest shown by people outside the Croatian speaking boundaries, we have decided to translate this information into other world languages.

WHAT IS A TRIPE EVENT?


. . .Goldener Koch des Monats 'TRIPERIJADA' is a gathering at regular intervals of the members of the club with the aim of eating tripe (tripica). On each TRIPERIJADA a minimum of two cooks (depending on technical conditions) compete in their culinary expertise. The cooks are members of the club, and every member has the right to enrol as a cook. Each cook competitor has the right to one helper of his choice. The members taste the 'tripe' prepared by each cook. After tasting is completed they then vote. The tripe dish of each cook/competitor is marked by each member/taster with points from 1 to 10. The tripe jury, made up of between 5 and 10 members, add up the marks, divide them by the number of votes and calculate the average mark given to the tripe dish of each cook. The cook with the higher average mark is declared the golden cook of the month, is given a gold medal and a temporary cup and is given the title 'COOK OF THE MONTH'. The cook with the lower average mark is given a silver cook of the month medal.

. . .Reservations to take place in the TRIPERIJADI (TRIPE EVENTS) are made within a given time in the restaurants in which the events will be held, or at other reserved points. The number of participants is limited to the capacity of the place in which the TRIPERIJADA is held and the size of the saucepans in which the magnificent food is prepared. - Information concerning enrolment will be given on the web page in due time (no less than one week before the event).
