Spring Is Served!

Although it's technically not here yet, it's definitely in the air. I'm talking about spring in Zagreb, of course. All the usual signs are clearly visible. Longer, sunnier days, spring flowers in bloom, life back in the streets... And when it comes to food, is there such a dish or produce that just screams spring? What are the heralds of spring on a plate? The answer is not so clear-cut, but let's try to paint a picture.


The Intangible Fluffiness of Kremšnita

Good news for samoborska kremšnita, one of the most popular desserts in Croatia – it has just been added to the Register of Cultural Goods of the Republic of Croatia! Hopefully, this is just a step towards its protection on the EU level.


Make Kuglof Great Again

This winter, all the foodies of Zagreb, me included, went crazy for the new sourdough panettone cake from Kroštula artisan bakery.


Artisan Chocolate – Music for the Palate

The artisan chocolate scene in Zagreb is stronger than ever before. Of course, the chocolate confectionery industry has always been strong here and good chocolate is highly appreciated.


A Small Piece of Asia in Zagreb

Asian food, especially Asian street food is no big news here, same as in the rest of Europe. Zagreb has had its share of different Asian food establishments for decades now, yet a new wave of Asian street food has definitely been sweeping the city lately.
