Until life moves into a slower gear and I have a chance to sit down and write some posts about my recent trip home, to Croatia, here are a few food photos.
Sweet taste of home:
Freshly made Turkish coffee every day, even half-way up the mountain! (while visiting the national park Paklenica, on the Velebit mountain)
Mum’s Kiflichi (biscuits stuffed with jam) for breakfast, or with coffee during the day
Mum’s walnut cake with lemon and rum filling that graces every family celebration (photographed in extremely bad light, at night! sorry!)
Savoury taste of home:
Cuttlefish risotto. The first time my brother M cooked for me. 🙂
Freshly picked wild asparagus (for making aspragus and prosciutto frittata and asparagus salad with eggs)
Asparagus growing wild. You can see the brown edible shoots, and the prickly plant
Sarma (sauerkraut leaves stuffed with beef and pork mince)
Brudet od sipa s palentom – Cuttlefish stew with polenta
More photos and recipes coming soon!
