Summer pumpkin and plums “dressed” in thin pastry. Mmmm. Visual and taste experience. Another pumpkin strudel combination on our journey through Croatia :).
One Sunday my grandmother decided to make an apricot strudel instead of the classic cheese štrukli. Nothing strange in it when you have three apricot trees in your front yard. But on that particular Sunday everyone was on some sort of a diet, so small bits of the strudel were cut. The conversation was started, the pan stayed on the table and after an hour it was empty. So much for diet and character. It is therefore time to repeat this experience with the proven recipe for filo pastry. 🙂
Red, white or black berries of the currant are an obligatory part of the sweet winter food stores. Among jellies, marmalade, syrup, liqueur or wine, I decided to prepare jam. Simple and fast preparation, and multiple applications. From the simplest, tasting off the spoon, up to the delicious adding to various desserts.
Simplicity is the other name of this strudel. Squash in its most basic form with the addition of only sugar, semolina and cinnamon.
An absolute favorite among summer salads and a must-have in my family. Goes well with grilled meat, but also independently with the addition of toast. As an added twist, put in fresh chopped dill.
Less is more – an old saying goes. In this traditional recipe this goes without saying. A few good quality ingredients, simple preparation, and a meat meal is ready. With a mashed potato as a side dish, it makes for a complete meal. You can add a zest of spicy with chopped spring onions and roughly cut dry pepper.
Apricots ripening season is here, so it is quite convenient to prepare dumplings from potato dough and fill it with this delicious fruit. Pour them over with toasted breadcrumbs, sprinkle with sugar and a dessert is here.
Spring vegetables carrot, kohlrabi and peas united in a stew, thickened by some flour. This meal is easy to prepare, and also rich in colours.
Warm and crunchy doughnuts with delicate petals of the locust blossoms. Sprinkled with powder sugar, it will round up this sweet snack.
On this plate we choose recognizable foods of Kvarner region and arrange it into unique combination of the flavor. From škripavac cheese to potato polenta, salted pilchards, olives and polenta bread.
