Morning starts marked with the mood from last evening. Teams are starting the fire and the preparations for the championship, the year they were waiting for this moment. Stormy night caused competitors to feel a little bit sleepy, but they are determined to fight and win.
Secrecy in the preparation of aphrodisiacs was pronounced this year too. All dishes are prepared in a special location, partially sheltered from the eyes of curious spectators.
Besides testicles, visitors could try traditional dishes such as sour cabbage from the clay pot, roast lamb, roast goat, beans in clay pot, barbecue, ham old couple years kept in special condition, a variety of sausages and pates. Please note that due to the global economic crisis, all the dishes were given visitors with no charge. It is our contribution to the fight against hunger.

We will find out who wins in this category, but we can say that tasters are extremely satisfied. Oldest participant was a 78 year old, and his partner in the study was pleasantly surprised by aphrodisiac effect.
