Supporting Schools

It might surprise our customers to know that our Director Frank Cetinich is not just an expert in gas cylinder equipment. He also has a talent for grilling meat, especially fish, that only a select few and privileged folk have experienced. Give him a pair of tongs and some fire and he can make magic happen. For the summer fair at a Berkshire junior school, CEFRANK UK kindly sponsored a Croatian food table for the International Food festival. Director Frank Cetinich wasn’t afraid roll up his sleeves to play chef for the day, assisting his wife and daughter as they made ćevapi rolls for the curious customers. The smell coming from the barbecue was tantalising as people stopped to ask what it was we were selling. With some lovely flatbread given to us at a fundraising-discount from the generous folks at Magaza, we filled them with the Croatian skinless, garlic sausage known as ćevapčići or simply ćevapi and some diced raw onion, topped with the ubiquitous ajvar, a red pepper relish, that frequents many Croatian tables.

We were a bit slow to start, but ended up selling out shortly after lunch with only a few bags of kifli and oblatne (a wafer slice) left. Frank was kept busy for a few hours on the barbecue, keeping an eye on row after row of ćevapi that the crowds waited for as they lined up. The stall was a wonderful success thanks to the help of the family and the generous support of CEFRANK UK.  The day was another example of how the CEFRANK family work well as a team always pulling together to get the job done.
