Croatian Desserts: 50 authentic recipes to make at home
Best-selling cookbook of Croatian sweets in English.
This glossy edition features 50 step-by-step recipes and over 500 full color images.
The recipes feature ingredients expressed both in cups and grams so you can skip any conversions and dive into baking.
The cookbook is a soft cover with wide inside flaps: not too heavy to handle but sturdy enough to hold its own on the kitchen counter.
Don't skip the engaging stories which introduce each dessert. It is a sweet travel all across Croatia, covering every region, from Dalmatia, Istria to the continental Croatia.
Last fall I was on the hunt for the perfect Croatian desserts cookbook in English. After researching all of the options, I decided to get this cookbook. Before Christmas, my sister Ana and I had a "baking day" where we tried making several recipes from this book and they were all fantastic! We made the Orehnjaca (walnut roll), Kiflice (vanilla crescent cookies), Linceri (Linzer cookies), and Londoneri (Walnut Meringue Slices) and got many compliments on them. The measurements, step-by-step instructions and pictures all make the recipes easy to follow. I highly recommend this cookbook to anyone that wants to make all of their favourite traditional Croatian dessert recipes and needs/wants the instructions in English.
I purchased this book as a birthday gift to my thirty year old son, who was born in Croatia, but grow up in Australia. He loves baking Croatian cakes, and this book was perfect for him. He loved it very much. Now he can make for himself whatever he liked at home, without me searching for my old Croatian cook books, and explaining to him whole process. Everything is described there, with photos and step by step guidance. Well done.
This is the first cookbook I’ve purchased in several years and is a pleasure to page through. So many recipes that were baked by my grandmothers feature in this book. I thank Andrea for sharing her culinary heritage. I would strongly encourage anyone who shares her passion for baking to purchase this book. I intend to bake one recipe per week. I’m assured that the clear step-by-step guides will ensure fail safe culinary delights.
What a beautiful and easy to follow cookbook. Now I feel more confident to make the recipes my mama used to make. Thank you so much for this!
This book is a wonderful treasure of Croatian dessert recipes! It contains Croatian favorites as well as some that are not so common. The recipes are well-written and the steps are presented in a clear fashion. I highly recommend the book for your own cookbook library or to give as a gift. It should be in everyone's kitchen!
