I’ve been waiting for years for a book like this. It had all the desert recipes that my mother and grandmother made. The instructions and pictures are detailed and easy to follow. Truly amazing and SO APPRECIATED!!! Thank you!!!
This cookbook is fabulous and old fashioned with deep knowledge and clear instructions for every recipe. I love the picture-style contents pages for easy reference for each recipe in the book
This is an excellent cookbook, with most favorite recipes from Croatia in English, so it is perfect for younger generation of descendents, that do not speak Croatian language. One of the benefits is that the measurements for ingredients are both in metric system as well as in English measurement system. The step by step directions with color photographs are clear and easy to follow. Andrea specifies the size of the pan to use for the recipes she developed, which is crtically important to get the desired result. I like the recipes so well that I purchased two books for myself, one for home and one for the vacation place, and I bought 4 more books to give to my younger relatives, so that they can enjoy the deserts that their mothers and grandmothers made for them.
Beautiful cookbook with all the Croatian staples. I am so grateful that ms Andrea dedicated her time to put a book like this together! I will be gifting this a lot!
This book has been great. Tried numerous recipes with perfect results. The pictures are extremely helpful as are having measurements in both metric and “English” equivalents. This is our third copy of the dessert cookbook with the others given as gifts.
