Recipes
Istrian soup with quince

Istrian soup was/is prepared of wine (terrano or borgonja) which is mildly heated in earthenware bowls (škundelice) on an open hearth during winter evenings. Some olive oil, a pinch of sugar and pepper are the sole additives. Fried home-made bread is dipped in this soup. But in this special version fried quince is also added.

Stories
About Dalmatian pašticada

“Do you have a good recipe for pašticada”, I was asked by the manager of Kuhaona. Talking to me, a woman from Dalmatia, with long-years of service in the kitchen – and I am still thinking before I act – obviously having much trust in my culinary and gastronomic knowledge. I jump to the offer, and before I start the story on a pašticada recipe that I love, I have to repeat some of the numerous insights regarding this symbol of Dalmatian cuisine.
