For the eighth year in the row, in its gastronomic center Štagelj Podravka hosted the "Cool gathering". Users of the web site Coolinarika proved enthusiastic about visiting this event this year as well, which gives them an opportunity to meet their online friends live.

About 150 guests from various countries participated at this year's gathering. Part of the day-long program was a workshop with Dolcela's new product, white gum paste. Usage and shaping was demonstrated by the workshop leader, Podravka's long year culinary promoter, Marina Paleka.
