    How to Cook dishes from Croatia

    Croatia Croatia is a country of several distinct regions, each with their own distinct cultural traditions, historical influences, and thus, style of cuisine. It is for this reason that Croatian cuisine is known by many as the "the cuisine of regions". Some popular Croatian recipes include:
    • Brudet - A fish stew. It is usually served with polenta (boiled cornmeal).

    • Cešnovka - Cešnovka is a spicy pork sausage with a garlic taste. It originates from the Turopolje region of the country.

    • Ðuvec - This is a dish made from stewed vegetables, and is somewhat similar to ratatouille.

    • Gulaš - This is a spicy beef stew. The dish is reminiscent of Hungarian cuisine's gulyás (goulash).

    • Istrian stew (Croatian: Istarska jota) - This is a stew made from spare ribs and baco, with potatoes, beans and sauerkraut. It is flavored with garlic.

    • Juha od Mahuna - Vegetable soup. It is made from grean beans with lentils, onions, carrots and peas.

    • Kulen - A spicy pork sausage which originates from Slavonia.

    • Pašticada - This dish is originally from Dalmatia, and is sometimes known as "Dalmatinska pašticada". It is a dish made of stewed beef, and is served with noodles or gnocchi (dumplings).

    • Sarma - Sauerkraut rolls stuffed with ground pork and rice.


    • Sataraš - Chopped roasted vegetables, including bell peppers.

    • Slavonski Cobanac - A lamb stew, which was originally from Slavonia.

    • Strukli - The Croatian version of ravioli. It normally contains cheese or apple. This dish is originally from Croatia's capital city, Zagreb. In northern parts of Croatia, strukli are particularly eaten during the Christmas period, and served with compotes of dried fruits (such as pear, prunes, or apple).

    • Zagrebacki odrezak - This dish is also originally from Zagreb. It is made by stuffing thin slices of chicken or veal with ham and cheese, and then sautéeing.
    Croatia is also home to some interesting desserts. These include:
    • Cupavci - This is a biscuit-like cake. It is cut into squares, which are covered with chocolate and dessicated coconut.

    • Krafne - Krafne are a type of donut (although they do not containa hole). Most krafne are filled, the usually fillings being jelly, chocolate, cream or custard.

    • Palacinke - Crêpes with sweet fillings.

    • Rozata - Custard pudding similar to flan.

    • Strudel (Croatian: Savijaca, Strudla) - - The Croatian variant of strudel. Croatian strudels are usually filled with apple or cheese.

    Recipes from the Croatian cuisine

    By Kasia Ryniak

    Blue Oleander
    Released: 2014-03-13
    Kindle Edition (131 pages)

    Recipes from the Croatian cuisine
    Product Description:
    The book is a collection of most popular recipes from the Croatian cuisine, selected by Kasia Ryniak of Blue Oleander.

    The eclectic cookery of Croatia has its origins in the country’s turbulent history. From the Slavic culinary traditions brought from the Carpathian Mountains, through the Ottoman and Austro-Hungarian influence, and the historical dominance of Venetians on the country’s coast, to the most recent struggle for independence breaking away from Yugoslavia; all these events left a mark on Croatia’s traditional menu.

    Despite Croatia’s relatively small territory, there are many kitchens accredited to respective regions. The Dalmatian cuisine enjoys much of the treasures derived from the sea; Slavonia’s cookery cultivates the fruits of its land, preserving many of the Slavic traditions, whereas Kvarner brings the tables of land and sea together. The Istrian kitchen, strongly influenced by the Italian cuisine, vastly exploits its coastal resources as well as the immense treasures of the peninsula’s rich soil.

    Despite foreign influence for centuries, and the many years of forced integration that came with Yugoslavia, Croatia is trying to build its own culinary identity. The fame of the cuisine is yet to come, as the Croatian food industry producing great quality products, including olive oil, wine and cheese, will develop, enabling broader exports. For now, Croatian products abroad are scarce and expensive, and due to their extraordinary attributes, sought by connoisseurs. (...)
