    Product Description:
    Many consider Serbian cuisine one of the best cuisines in the world. This book is a collection of our nation's traditional food, tasty, healthy and easy to make recipes. This authentic cookbook will provide you with some of the best recipes for everyday use, for both beginners and intermediate users, and you will surely love it. It also explains many traditions and customs of Serbian people. Please enjoy this book, and we hope that you will share our nation's delicious food and recipes with your friends and families.----According to scarce but still sufficient data available for our present-day analysis,we can claim with high confidence that the Serbian cuisine has been reaching into the distant past. Therefore we are now able to envision the history of Serbian gastronomy as a continuous process that finally resulted in the Serbian national cuisine.This may be the leading cause of so many head-scratchers, among the professionals as well as among citizens and guest tourists, about the real nature of the Serbian cuisine: is it what is prepared in homes on daily basis,or what is written in recipes and printed in various books? Once defined, it becomes the foundation of restaurant and tourist offer of Serbia, a special promotable brand.The author has put in a lot of effort to present the entire results of his research in form of a book. The awareness of scarcity of written material on diet of Serbian people through history is an additional reason to approach this subject gradually and in great detail.The goal of the author is not just to present the dishes made by our ancestors in order to satisfy our curiosity and to finally have them all written and listed in one place, but also to reintroduce as many of them as possible into the everyday diet and restaurant and hotel offer. I hope that after so many years some of these special delicacies will again spread their aromas through our kitchens.

    Serbian Cookbook
    Product Description:
    The Great Serbian Cookbook with fabulous recipes of traditional food.
    The Balkan cuisine is a very rich, mainly having dishes that are extremely meaty and consistent in animal fats. Balkan cuisine is an heterogeneous one, derived from mixed traditions, mostly influenced by Mediterranean (especially Greek), Hungarian, Turkish and Austrian cousins. Among the most representatives dishes in the Balkan cuisine, there are the Sarma (stuffed cabbage rolls), podvarak (roast meat with Sauerkraut) and the Moussaka. Also, the Pecenje , which basically consists of roasted meat: pork, lamb, goat or rarely ox, is another typically Balkan dish.

    Barbeques are very popular in Serbia, and we have developed a series of products that can only be prepared in this method. Such meals, often considered fast-food ones, include Pljeskavica (hamburger), Ćevapi (small kebabs), Vešalica, Mućkalica (mixed meat), and other various sausages.

    The Balkan cuisine, just like Balkan culture, implies not only region elements connected to Serbia, but other parts of former Yugoslavia as well. Great influences have been marked on the whole cooking process due to peasantry, which also influenced the folk craft, music and arts.

    Under the rule of the Ottoman Empire, during the last five centuries, Serbia has had not only cultural influences, but cooking ones as well. Special traditional dishes made in Serbia today have common roots with the dishes prepared in Turkey. The whole Balkan cuisine is derived from a mixture of influences coming from Mediterranean, especially Greek influences, Hungary, Turkish and Austrian cuisines.
    The former Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia has formed a heterogeneous cuisine, and even after the 1991 split, Serbia as we know it today has dishes learned how to make from decades.

    Balkan has a great passion for food in general, having a rich cuisine and a large diversity of alcohol beverages that accompany these fat-rich dishes. Sljivovica is a strong, alcoholic beverage primarily made from distilled fermented plum juice. It tastes similar to brandy and sometimes called plum brandy in English. Specific Balkan wines have centuries of tradition behind them. The Vrzole wine is made by the private winery Vinik from the famous wine region – Vrsac, winery which blends traditional family recipes and newest technology in making limited quantities of this famous red and white wine.

    Foods include a variety of grilled meats and bread. Desserts range from Turkish style baklava to Viennese style tortes. The national drink of Serbia is a plum brandy. Locally produced wines are also popular and they are highly regarded. Most popular cuisines that are served in Serbia are Pasulj (Balkan Bean Soup), Soups Stews Beans, Prysnac Serbia (Broccoli Casserole), Balkan Torte, Szerb Bableves (Balkan Bean Soup).
