Croatia, a beautiful and geographically diverse country on Europe's Balkan peninsula, offers a sunny Adriatic coastline and breath-taking scenery, as well as a distinctive culinary tradition that combines central European, Mediterranean, and Near Eastern influences. In this expanded edition, Best of Croatian Cooking offers over 200 recipes adapted for the American kitchen. Classic dishes like Turkey with Pasta Tatters, Strudel with Sauteed Risotto (prepared with cuttlefish ink), are featured here. Also included are over 50 dessert recipes for fine tortes, cookies, and all kinds of strudels (poppy seed, carob, apple, apricot, cheese, walnut and more). The authors' introduction provides insight into the development of Croatia and its cuisine over the centuries. Together with time-saving tips and a chapter on Croatian wines, this culinary tour is both scenic and satisfying.
