“Preprosto kot burek“ ("As simple as a burek") is a piece of graffiti, frequently encountered on Slovenian facades. However, Jernej Mlekuž shows in this sociological, philosophical and linguistic study that the matter of the burek, which has become a metaphor for the Balkans in Slovenian everyday life, is not so simple, neither on the dining table nor in the culture.The study Burek.si?! Koncepti/recepti [Burek.si?! Concepts/recipes] by Jernej Mlekuž has been translated into Serbian (excerpt) by Alenka Zdešar Ćirilović under the title Burek.si?! Koncepti/recepti, published by Clio, Belgrade.
