Austria: Easter meal  / Butcher apprentices competition

SERIES TITLE: World of Youth

Butcher apprentices join a special competition. Trainees need to drape a traditional Easter meal. Before eating, a basket with blessed food is put together and carried to the meat-blessing ceremony. Every selected dish makes sense. According to religion, different meat- and sausage specialties, Easter eggs and cake-like pastries are part of the holy food.
