Hello everyone!

 

Glad to see people are interested in croatian food!

 

Some of the most common dishes here include

 

- Zagorski strukli (most eaten in continental part of croatia) - štrukli is actually pastry filled with fresh cheese, fresh butter, made in pillow shapes, and then cooked

  Lastly they are covered with bread crumbs

  Štrukli is traditional dish from Zagorje, and can be eaten as a main dish, as well as apetizer

 

- Purica s mlincima - Turkey with mlinci - I guess you all know what is Turkey :D but the deal here are Mlinci, made with water, flour and eggs

  the dough is rolled to a thin pastry that is baked first (it gets crunchy), and after that it is boiled and covered with juices that comes from turkey making

  may be weird for foreign people, but usually when people try it, they fall in love with it

  Turkey with mlinci is usually eaten for all big holidays here, christmas, easter etc...

 

- Peka

  Peka includes and some kinds of meat (sheep), or some fish (octopusy )

  All the ingredients (fish or meat) are combined together with a lots of vegetables (potato, onion etc) and put in a big "bowl" that is closed and covered with tons of "amber" that goes in a stone bread oven

  Like that everything inside a bowl is slowly cooked over a few hours, with indirect heat from amber all around the bowl

  For the result you get perfect meal, people would come to croatia to eat it over and over again and again

 

If you like reading all for now, I'll post some more of them
