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.

Here is what's inside Croatian Desserts cookbook:

50 desserts from all regions of Croatia: Dalmatia, Istria, Slavonia, Zagreb County, Zagorje and Medjimurje.

6 chapters that reflect occasions, such as Lazy morning, Sunday sweets, Special occasions, Cakes, Christmas sweets and Easter sweets. 

Authentic recipes passed down from the women in my family or close friends. 

Each recipe lists ingredients in both metric and American (Imperial) measures: grams and cups/tbsp. 

Suggestions on how to substitute Croatian ingredients that may be hard to find outside the country.

Engaging culinary stories for each dessert, including the pronunciation guide.

Wonderful Book

Mouth watering recipes, great photos, good explanations and warm story can see Andrea etc by the way on some Royal Croatian Tour you tube videos.

I know Croatian cooks well and even the most experienced eagerly read the book saying "ah my baka made mum did that.."

Croatian food is absolutely wonderful. Croatian desserts.. you are in for a treat!

The sister book Croatian Classics is just as good.

Books that are made of sunshine, warmth, and welcome.

Idamo Jesti! Gosba!!!

Great collection of recipes

Love all the Croatian desserts that are in the book with different difficulty levels.

The one suggestion I have is to go more into details on the more difficult things like strudel - my Slovenian friend says the recipe is exactly like his grandmother's but the challenge is to know how to spread it without tearing it. Maybe online videos or more photos/tips on the next edition?

Croatian Deserts

As a 12 year old girl I copied a textbook written in pencil by my mother filled with cake recipes she had copied for herself as a young girl in Croatia. There were some pages missing, she said that when lending the book to others and before leaving for Australia some had ripped pages out. Most of the recipes only had the name of the cake and the ingredients, no other instructions, so I didn't even know what the cake was supposed to look like. This Croatian Desert book has filled in some of those blanks. I am eager with the help of this book to try some of the old recipes from my mothers book. PS. one of my favourite cakes to make is the Madarica and I love the fact that in this book they weigh out the dough and the fill to be exact - I have always done this, even though some thought it was taking it a bit too far :)

Croatian Desserts cookbook

Love the cookbook. I wish I had paid attention to my mother when she baked all those wonderful ethnic pastries and deserts. She was born in Bosnia-Hercegovina and learned her cooking and baking skills there. She loved to cook and bake and always prepared wonderful meals for her family and friends. My daughter managed to get her recipe for her version of Pogache (Easter Bread) which we all loved. I struggled to recreate it but failed multiple times until I read your book on the use of fresh yeast and handling the dough. I finally succeeded getting my dough to rise. Can't wait to try the multitude of recipes in your book. Thank you for a wonderful book.
