    This is recipe from 15th century from Split (Dalmatia). It was noted first time in Split around 1480. All ingredients from recipe can be found in Dalmatian region. Pasticada is meal you can make from meat but also large fish. Tuna is especially good for this recipe because of its meat structure. I haven’t tried this recipe yet, and I am posting it here to save it.

    Recipe #409390

    This is very old recipe from 17th century Zagreb. The only place you could get this recipe in Zagreb area was mountain hut on Japetic hill near Samobor. Unfortunately, the hut is closed now so you can get this recipe only in some old Zagreb households or if you invite yourself at my house. I am posting this recipe to save it for future generations.

    Recipe #409389

    This meal is very old, probably from Greek and Roman times 2000 years ago. We in Croatia are very lucky because we can buy salted anchovies from direct producers who make these salted anchovies the same way old Romans did. And I must say, these home made salted anchovies are much, much better than grocery-stores one. Beside anchovy we also salt “srdela” a.k.a. sardine. Srdela is “heavier” to eat, and more cleaning work. It is very salty meal and a person should not eat more than three salted anchovies per day (that’s 6 fillets). This is how we prepare this meal in Dalmatia.

    Recipe #405415

    I have tried this meal this summer (it is not summer's meal, but...) and it was suprise for me. It is so light and refreshing, not heavy meal we used to eat in North Croatia. This become my favorite. It is very simple. The origin of this recipe is from village Vrisnik on island Hvar.

    This is traditional fall dinner, usually served with “mlinci” (recipe also on Zaar). It is very easy and simple; I am adding some of my procedure tricks.

    This is traditional North Croatian pasta, popular only in Zagreb and Zagorje region (north of Zagreb). We eat this for Christmas, Halloween, Easter, St. Martin’s day and every time we roast poultry. I recommend using lard, because dough will be much better.

    This recipe is from village Nijemci in Slavonia (eastern Croatia). Nijemci literally means Germans; I have collected this recipe during annual minority fair in Zagreb where minorities present their culture. German minority was pretty large in eastern Croatia, but after 2WW Bolsheviks wiped them out (mostly kill them in concentration camps). Village Nijemci remind us of that minority (today we have about 2000-3000 Germans (volksdeutsch) living in Croatia) and they mostly live in east Croatia. The recipe is time consuming but very nice Sunday family gathering meal.

    Recipe #395512

    The basic of this recipe is “buzara”, or way of preparing crabs or shells. This is very simple recipe and you can buy frozen already cleaned prawns.

    Recipe #389033

    “Cobanac” is kind of goulash sheep and cow-boy’s used to eat while watching their herds. You eat it with a spoon, so the pieces inside has to be bite-size. It is traditional meal from Slavonia (eastern part of Croatia)and people from there are very proud of it. They have annual “Cobanac festival” where there is competition in making cobanac. They cook cobanac in large bronze pots on tripod over open fire. Of course, everyone will tell you that their stew is the best one. This is how I do it. (I know someone here on Zaar would be against horse meat, but, if you really want to enjoy the taste, use horse meat.)

    Recipe #388952

    This is one of my ways of making risottos. This one has more Dalmatian approach with herbs and olive oil and tomatoes. North Croatian way would be with Hungarian paprika and other herbs and spices. You cal also use beef, horse or pork meat.

    It is a kind of “sauce remoulade” I like to eat with fried calamari or fried fish (parisienne, wiener or Orly style). It is easy to make, usually you have all ingredients at home.

    Recipe #388341

    This is a simple meal, easy to make. The only problem might be that when you fry the calamari oil will sprinkle around kitchen and can hurt you, so use some kind of protection.

    This is another simple summer salads we usually eat in Croatia. It is standard restaurant salad you can get in most Croatian restaurants or households. You can use olive oil instead of normal, and cider vinegar. If you cool it, it is very refreshing during summer.

    This is standard tomato salad in Croatian households. It is so simple that I was not sure if it is necessary to submit it. Anyway, it is a part of Croatian usual meal, so, that is how it goes.

    Recipe #381374

    This is one of traditional early summer North Croatian stews. I am sure they eat something similar in Hungary since we have shared the same history for more than 500 years. This is my grand-grandmother recipe, almost 200 years old.

    This is usual mixed summer salad you can get almost in every Croatian household or restaurant. The importance is in wine vinegar (not aceto balsamico), and it must be cooled. I do not know the reason, but vinegar does not make you thirsty during hot summer days, so it is very important ingredient.

    Recipe #380273

    This is very simple salad where you use cooked French beans. You can use flat or round bean or green or yellow one, the procedure is the same. I do not use olive oil and only vinegar (not acceto balsamico). I also use honey vinegar (I have a friend who is in bee-honey business and he produces that honey vinegar. It is extremely healthy and excellent taste; you can drink it with water alone.)

    Recipe #380026

    This is one of my favorite summer dinners (it is heavy enough for hot summer evening). You can use canned tuna, but fillets. You can also use leftovers from tuna steaks you have grilled earlier.
