We all know a variety of flavors in Croatia. Some we love, some we adore… It depends on the taste! The personal taste is not to be discussed.
Croatians are plenty eaters and we like versatile food. With so many dishes and ingredients to choose from fresh herbs, fruit, and vegetables, domestic animals, game, salt, sugar, white and red wine, olive and pumpkin oil, apple vinegar… Croatian cuisine has become rich, versatile and delicious.
When you meet the great cook you just want to copy exactly what she/he is doing, follow every step trying to learn all about the process and remember all the details.
And enjoying, all the time….looking, cooking and eating!
That’s what we have for you!
We’ll teach you how to prepare; ŠTRUKLI – the most popular and traditional dish from Zagorje and Zagreb, but this time differently; Štrukli soup, ŠTRUKLI desert, ŠTRUKLI main course. One class will be about learning to cook STUFFED BELL PEPPERS, or FILLET STEAK IN MUSHROOM SAUCE, or TURKEY WITH FLATBREAD, BREAD WITH LARD, MINCED MEATBALLS, or ZAGORJE SOUP, or HOMEMADE PASTA, PUMPKIN RISOTTO and PUMPKIN SOUP, but even a PUMPKIN CAKE, as well as the APPLE PIE, PANCAKES CROATIAN WAY with the HOMEMADE MARMELADE.
Should I go on?? 🙂 The Croatian Cuisine cookbook is very rich!
The most important thing is – we are always going to cook the seasonal dish with the seasonal vegetables and with the ingredients from a local small eco farms!!!
The tour starts at 9.00 AM (or 9.30.) in front of your hotel or a private accommodation and we take you to the most beautiful place to cook in!
The drive will take like an hour to Zagorje, where our host and the great cook will wait for us in her kitchen!
Oh – what a kitchen!!!!!!!!
And then the show may start – with some light snacks during the enjoyable and hard cooking preparation, but with a lot of flavors, many smiles and fantastic cooking atmosphere.
After lunch – we suggest a walk or short drive to the most beautiful castle in Croatia – Trakoščan.
This part of medieval history will be another highlight of this really special day tour.
But – if you don’t join us -you gonna get – like NIŠTANCI WITH POČEKANCI/ I.E. NOTHING. This is the common phrase mother use when kids are too noisy and impatient waiting for the lunch.
Actually, it’s easy to prepare it; ½ nothing + ½ less than nothing 🙂
Looking forward to cooking with you!
