I have been making makovnjaca for years and was never quite satisfied with my multiple recipes for the dough. Andrea has answered my prayers! Her recipe is PERFECT! We have a list of others we are planning over the holidays. You can have total confidence in everything that comes out of Andrea's kitchen.
Wow finally found a place where I could buy a croatian baking book in english from Croatia Honestly! The lady Andrea is so lovely, always updating me with the delivery, lovely person to deal with.
I have already used two of your recipes. My brother came in from California to Chicago and we always have to have lamb. I tried your Slow Roast Lamb instead of my usual Roast Leg of Lamb and everyone said this is the only way I can make lamb again. I also tried your Croatian Honestly Pogacha. I am usually a sourdough bread maker but your Pogacha recipe was so easy to follow and was so delicious.
As I stated in my previous comments I am so grateful to you for putting all of these very special recipes together for people like me who did not get their great grandmother and grandmothers recipes in writing before they passed away. These family traditions are so important and because of you I am able to share them with my family and they will be able to continue the traditions.
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
