Dalmatia Recipes from Croatia's Mediterranean Coast


At its heart, Dalmatian cuisine is frugal, honest and rustic, with distinctive flavours, including silver beet, varenik (grape molasses) and prošek (Dalmatian fortified wine) that give it an identity all of its own. Similar to Greek and Italian food, fish, seafood, tomatoes and olives reign and the foundation of most dishes is good quality produce grown in pure, clean earth and treated simply. Some dishes include the famous Dubrovnick crème caramel, Rožata, Brujet (Dalmatian fish stew) and pašticada, a slow-cooked beef cheek with prunes, apples and potato dumplings.

In his first book, Dalmatia, Ino Kuvacic brings us over 100 authentic Croatian dishes.
