I love these books because it has all the recipes I have been looking for. My mother-in-law brought so many of these recipes with her when she came to America but unfortunately, only a few were written down. These recipes brought back so many memories of her and my husband's grandmother who taught me how to cook some of the Croatian dishes. I look forward now to sharing these recipes with my family and to keep the tradition going.
I have purchased both the Deserts and Croatian Classics cookbooks for myself and to gift family members. I love the beautiful photos and step by step instructions. So well written, including extra tips and I love reading the background story for each dish. Brings such warm memories of my mom and grandmother and the dishes I grew up with. Thank you so much for sharing the joy of Croatian food and customs.
