»Onions and bread make a lunch.«

A traditional onion grower’s lunch consists of bread, minced lard, and onions. Children on onion-growing farms and across the Ptujsko polje still love this simple dish.

Ptujski lük can be used in a number of traditional and modern dishes. Its excellent flavour makes it the perfect basis for any dish. When cooking, it disintegrates quickly and does not turn brown. Its moderate pungency gives dishes a unique flavour.
