With all the yummy Easter chocolate gobbled up and the lazy long weekend over and done with I can’t wait to get back into the kitchen and cook delicious food from scratch. With everyone home on school holidays the kids and I have been trying out different dishes from around the globe and this week it’s all about Croatia with this lovely little cookbook from Exisle Publishing:

Inspired by her father’s homeland of Korčula, Croatia award-winning author Barbara Unković has bundled some of her favourite rustic recipes and special memories in The Adriatic Kitchen (RRP $14.99).

Using a refreshing mix of seasonal ingredients, combined with pantry staples, and guided by easy step-by-step instructions Barbara helps her readers whip up traditional Croatian delights in their own kitchen. The book covers more than 70 delicious recipes, lovingly divided by the season they are generally made in so you can enjoy a taste of Croatia all year around.

From delicious dinners like Dalmatian Shepherd’s Lamb with Potatoes and Broad Beans, End of Summer Cazlone and Roast Chicken with Pomegranate and Spinach to sweet treats like Bowknots, Double Chocolate Fig Truffles and Lemon and Lavender Shortbread and so much more, you will find The Adriatic Kitchen serves up something to please everyone.
