I live in Zagreb, Croatia. I am Croatian Army officer for 18 years; lt.col. I ski quite good, and I like hiking. My favourite cookbooks are schoolbooks from Cooking High School in Zagreb. You can find everything there. They are basic for any recipe, you can learn everything you need. All the recipes I've posted here were tried, succefully. I've done it all. I'm also a gastronomic minimalist - I don'l like to much fancy food. I like it simple.
