  1. When ever we travel to Croatia (Zadar) my mother prays i take over the lunch duties but i just struggle and stress over not finding equivalent ingredients.
    Could you please let me know what the cut of meat Gravy Beef is called over there as i use that cut alot here in Australia,also do they have chicken spare ribs over there,and self raising flour ????

    1. Sorry, I have no idea what gravy beef is. Also, what are chicken spare ribs (sounds gross). Here the butcher has the whole animal, so, you just tell him what you need and they cut it – so just tell him what you want to make and he will give you what you need. Yes, self-raising flour can be found (look for the green packet).

  2. Hi my mum& dad we’re from Croatia and have recently passed away. I have all of mums recipes, but they are all in Croatian & I can’t read them 🙁
    Do have a recipe forBuhtle ?
    I’m loving your recipes thank you

  3. The Dom has hardly anything on the menu. Last time we visited, everything Peter asked for, he was told we don’t have it. He had to order cevapi because they had nothing but those or fish!

  4. My kids have been there many times. They love it. It’s an up class Croatian cuisine. The tradition Cro food is good at Footscray Croatian dom. Whitehall road ( I think). Love their sarma and chicken soup. Plenty of bread. 💜

  5. Actually going to try the Cro restaurant in Williamstown if I can this weekend. They have more traditional stuff on the menu than the Dom in Footscray.

  6. My aunt in Split used to work in a bakery store and gave my mum a vanilla slice recipe. Everyone in the family and friends always request her to make a tray when there is a special occasion.

  7. I would really love the recipe for Zagrebački Kolač in English. I has this in a small patisserie in Varaždin & still can’t stop thinking about it.

    1. Napoleon, Balkans style

      Ingredients:
      250 g puff pastry
      4 eggs
      100 g corn starch
      30 g all purpose flour
      3 x 100 g sugar
      2 sachet vanilla sugar
      750 ml milk
      300 ml water
      250 ml heavy cream

      Directions:
      1. Roll the puff pastry into two sheets fitting smaller rectangular pan. Poke a few holes on the bottom of the dough with a fork and bake each sheet in the oven preheated to 180°C for about 10-12 minutes or until golden. Leave one sheet in the pan for the base, cut another into serving size squares.
      2. Beat egg whites with 100 g of sugar very stiff. Mix egg yolks with another 100 g of sugar, add vanilla sugar, corn starch, flour and water.
      3. Boil milk, stir in the yolks cream and cook over lower temperature until it becomes very thick. Remove from heat and carefully whisk in the egg whites foam. Pour the filling in the pan with pastry sheet at the bottom.
      4. Beat heavy cream with 100 g of sugar and spread over cooled filling. Arrange the pastry squares over. Cool. Dust with icing sugar before serving.

  8. My grandmother came from what is now Rijeka, when I was little my Dad would make these incredible noodles she had taught him, they were wide and flat, and I swear they were just flour and water. When I tell people that they always say, “that’ glue.” It’s not glue. Anytime I’ve asked him to teach me how to make his noodles, he just pushed me out of the way and made them himself. Is there a name for this type of noodle? His mom died when my Dad was eight so he doesn’t know it.

  9. Is there a recipes for Dubrovnik style pasta in dak orange and wine please? Like is served at Mala Kuzina?

  10. I need help with Bosnian measurements – would like to find Bosnian measuring utensils to purchase for my friend so she would not have to convert her recipes to American measurements while cooking
