Extending all along the Adriatic sea, Croatia is a coastal paradise that shares many food traditions with Mediterranean countries of Italyand Greece. The warm climate is ideal for growing olivesand figs, which are pressed into cooking oils and incorporated into dishes. As in Italy, fresh seafood, grilled meats, and salty cheeses are a big part of the Croatian cuisine but the country also shares culinary ties with Hungary and Eastern Europe. Goulash, dumplings, and warmly spiced soups are therefore also common in addition to the ingredients harvested from the Adriatic.
What kinds of Croatian dishes can I make?
As an appetizer, charcuterie boards are extremely popular in Croatian dining. Fill them with olives, goat cheese, and Dalmatia fig spread for dipping. As a main meal, cook up a seafood dish of grilled octopus, mussels, and shrimp, served with fresh lemon and Mediterranean herbs. For the cold days of winter, try making your own goulash, or savor the Croatian version of pasta e fagioli, pašta fažol.
