Hrvatska kuhinja is divided into 9 chapters, bringing all types of food to your table that you remember from your childhood or your visit to Croatia.
The chapters follow a particular Croatian eating logic, which is not by meal courses but by the cooking method. Here is the breakdown:
NA ŽLICU - The power of one-pot meals. This chapter celebrates our by-the-spoon dishes, including bean soups, sarma, various goulashes and fish stews, and vegetable pots.
NA REŠ - Crispy and healthy, a match made in the oven. Here are dishes roasted and baked in the oven, including roast piglet, roast turkey with mlinci, baked octopus and many more.
NA ŽARU - Grilled and roasted by the power of glowing embers. This chapter is all about food alfresco and features our mixed meat platter, ćevapi, ražnjići, veal, lamb and octopus peka style.
NA NAGLO - A quick bite from the pan. A chapter dedicated to our breaded delights, such as breaded chicken, hake, aubergines and the fabulous Zagreb-style steak.
NA LEŠO - Boiled but far from boring. This chapter opens with the famous braised beef - pašticada - but boasts lots of other meat and vegetables lešo style (boiled and irrigated with olive oil).
POD MUS – Compulsory greens on the side. Here is the pick of salads, from starchy ones (potato and bean salads), creamy (French salad) and plenty of green and healthy bowls.
ZA GUŠT - Starchy comforts that are good for the soul. A tribute to various kinds of pasta and risottos, this chapter includes from egg pasta, Istrian rolled pasta to gnocchi, as well as delicious sauces, such as šalša, paštašuta or truffles.
ZA DUŠU - Slurping your way to happiness. Here we are cooking sturdy bone broths and elegant chicken and fish soups. All this with plenty of homemade soup noodles and dumplings.
ZA POMAZAT - Sauces that make you polish the plate. This chapter will teach you how to make ajvar. Other relishes and sauces here will level up your food too.
I purchased the Hrvatska Kuhinja for my cousin in Croatia and she is so thrilled with it. She took the book to show her friends and they loved it as well. Andrea’s recipes are so much like our families and now we can cook with confidence. Thank you for offering a Croatian version of this fabulous Bible of cook books.
English version was my first purchased cookbook. My mother was born in Croatia and she is a great cook and baker. When I showed her my version, she was impressed with the recipes. Decided to purchase her the hrvaska version. She enjoys it, so its a success! Simple to understand, pictures are fabulous, highly recommend.
I purchased this book for mum. She loved the book, even though she if proficient in cooking some of the dishes. Especially the ones from Dalmatia. She especially loved the pictures of the steps involved. Simple and easy to understand. Highly recommend.
