Dear readers, We are proud to present the 25th edition of the Restaurant Croatica book: „100 Leading Croatian Restaurants- and Their Recipes”. This project is the oldest national brand of quality assessment in Croatian hospitality industry. We started the project in the far 1995 in cooperation with Croatian Economic Forum. Today, the QR code from the sticker of Restaurant Croatica links leading Croatian restaurants to the online edition of the book. In our selection we covered more than 2,400 restaurants in Croatia. Voting was made possible on the largest portal for promotion of gastronomy in Croatia, www.gastronaut.hr where you can find more than 5,600 different objects offering food and beverages, more than 1,900 recipes, gastronomy news and topics. There are more than 360,000 searches recorded on this portal every year. Voting was done by guests and restaurateurs. The final list was determined by the Honourable Committee of the project, making sure that the recommended restaurants were voted both by the guests and the restaurateurs, that they meet different requirements of modern guests (card payments, WiFi…), are open all year round and are worthy of recommendation in this book- guide. The restaurants presented in the book are also members of Club Gastronaut which held its meetings in the past year, in form of Gastronaut educational activities in Rijeka, Zagreb, Osijek, Karlovac, Crikvenica and on the island of Krk. Project „100 Leading Croatian Restaurants" is proud of the cooperation with the Association of Restaurateurs of Croatia, Association of Chefs of Mediterranean and European Regions and associations of touristic journalists. We hope this book will contribute to many tastes worth remembering and to pleasant moments in our leading restaurants. Leader of project 100 Leading Croatian Restaurants: Karin Mimica, MA

Istria and Kvarner Specialties based on ingredients from the sea and dishes prepared following old recipes with a strong presence of local aromatic herbs are the main features of this cuisine covering a number of gastronomic sub regions. Istrian prosciutto, Grobnik cheese, truffle cheese (Mljekara Latus, Karlić truffles), salted sardines, marinades, cod fish spread (Milena), snails, Istrian pesto (made with bacon and garlic) and seafood salad are just some of the cold starters that must be tried. Warm appetizers usually include various risottos and pastas with seafood, minestrone with corn from the cob (“bobići”), „jota" (traditional dish made with dried beans and sour cabbage) or frittata with truffles, rocket salad or wild asparagus. Fresh sea fish, Kvarner scampi prepared in many ways and mussels from Limski kanal are some of the specialties that attract tourists during the weekends. Specialties in Istria hinterland and Kvarner islands include smoked pork sirloin and sausages with sour cabbage, „fuži" (pasta), „šurlice" (homemade pasta) and gnocchi with venison stew, hare made in the pot and lamb prepared under the iron bell (“peka”). Lamb from the island is particularly praised because the animals graze in perfect ecological circumstances. For dessert, there are „kroštule" and „fritule" (both prepared with different types of dough and fried in deep oil), dried figs and chestnut cakes. Chestnuts from Lovran (“maruni”), wild asparagus and truffles from Motovun forest (Karlić truffles) are the ingredients to which special gastro days are dedicated in their season. During the gastronomic events Krk food fest – Tastes of Spring (May), you can enjoy the best traditional and seasonal dishes in about 20 restaurants of the island of Krk. Local salads include lamb’s lettuce, rocket salad and radicchio. Fresh marjoram, basil, sage, lemon balm, thyme, rosemary and laurel are added to the dishes. Fish is always accompanied by olive oil, usually from Istria (Rovinjola) or the island of Krk. For aperitif, we recommend sparkling wine Cattunar made of malvasia and Momjan moscato following the Charmat method, sparkling

wine (Winery Pavlomir, PZ Gospoja) or traditional Istrian brandy „biska" (Rossi). Dishes prepared with white fish and white meats are usually accompanied by Malvasia (Degrassi, Damjanić, Deklić, Cattunar, Sirotić, Matić, Marijan Arman, Rossi), Malvasia Reserve matured in wood in Winery Visintin, Sauvignon (Legovina, Valenta), Vrbnik Žlahtina, especially with lamb (PZ Gospoja, Pavlomir, PZ Vrbnik), Chardonnay (Degrassi, Legovina, Pavlomir) and Istrian rosé Ruža (Cattunar). With dark meats and oily fish the most popular are Teran (Terre Rosse – Degrassi, Valenta), Borgona (Damjanić), Refosco (Degrassi), Merlot (Cattunar, Damjanić), Cabernet Franc (Legovina) and Cabernet Sauvignon (Cattunar, Degrassi, Pavlomir). Desserts are accompanied by Dolce nota (Legovina) and Dolcetto. Good digestives are some of Darna liqueurs which were awarded some world awards or D-faktor fruity schnapps. Exclusive restaurants with top quality offer are Milan (fish) in Pula, San Rocco in Brtonigla, Zigante in Livade (truffles), Bevanda (fish) and Navis in Opatija, Plavi podrum (fish, creative cooking) in Volosko and Vinotel Gospoja in Vrbnik. Top creative specialties are also offered in restaurant Pergola in Zambratija, Zijavica in Mošćenička Draga, Sv. Nikola in Poreč, Draga di Lovrana in Lovranska Draga and Villa Ariston in Opatija. Local ingredients used in a creative way are an inspiration in restaurant Stancija Kovačići in Rukavac, Dream in Rovinj, Ganeum in Lovran and Marina in Krk. Mostly fish specialties are at home in Badi in Lovrečica, Giannino and Puntulina in Rovinj, Trošt in Vrsar, Yacht Club in Opatija, Ostaria Veranda in Volosko, Molo Longo in Rijeka, Rivica in Njivice, Domino in Dramalj, Santa Lucia in Cres and Barbat in Barbat on the island of Rab and Za kantuni in Mali Lošinj. Homelike ambience and local specialties are offered in La Parenzana in Buje, Vodnjanka in Vodnjan, Dida in Crikvenica, Marina in Punat and Artatore in Mali Lošinj. Jist in Viškovo is well known for steaks, and forest specialties are served in Bitoraj in Fužine. 11

Restaurant Trošt is situated in Marina Vrsar. You can enjoy a splendid view of the sea and the town of Vrsar from the restaurant. The owners, family Trošt, have worked in the hospitality industry for two decades and after renting restaurants Vrsaranka and Marina, since 2001 they have had their own restaurant Trošt, also known as Ilvo. In summer on the terrace, in winter in the warm ambience near the open fireplace you

20

can enjoy fish and meat specialties, pasta with lobster, grilled fish or fish baked in salt crust, „pljukanci" - homemade pasta with scampi and porcini and beefsteaks in many different ways. There is a wide choice of selected quality wines. „Experience moments of utter satisfaction with genuine hospitality and tasty dishes”, say the owners.


Deklić wines are the result of an almost one-hundred-year tradition cherished by the Deklić family in their vineyards. The grapevine has always been our life and the legacy that we take care of and preserve for generations to come. Our wines come from the area of Vizinada, part of the Istrian peninsula, which has always been a wine-growing district, with an excellent climate, afertile red soil and a pleasant altitude which is of great importance for the wine. Our vineyards’ locations allow vines to absorb the sun heat throughout the day, which greatly affects the excellence of the product. The combination of terroir and effort we invest brings you the wines characterized by their minerality, freshness, durability, retro flavour and finearoma. You will enjoy them as much as our family members enjoy producing them for you.

Marinirani filet švoje s majonezom od vlasca Marinated Flounder Fillet with Chives Mayonnaise For 4 persons: 4 flounders, 2 dl lemon juice, 2 dl olive oil, Mediterranean herbs (sage, rosemary, bay leaves, thyme), 0.5 dl milk, 1.5 dl olive oil, 50 g fresh chives, 50 g samphire Fillet the fish and remove the skin. Season with salt, place fillets in lemon juice and refrigerate for 6 hours. Flounder has more compact meat than other fish and needs to be marinated longer. Take the fillets out and dry them with a kitchen towel. They will be tough and rubbery, so put them in olive oil with herbs for 24 hours to make them tender. The fish will remain fresh for several days. Briefly boil samphire. For mayonnaise blend milk and chives in a tall glass, add some salt and start adding oil, slowly, until you use it all. Put a spoonful of mayonnaise on a plate, take the fillets out of oil, wipe them and place on mayonnaise and finish with boiled samphire.

Restaurant & Residence Dream is located just a few steps from the waterfront in a vivid and busy tourist area of historic centre of old town Rovinj. It is situated in a 19th century building completely renovated by the owners, Amir Kadunić, MSc in Civil Engineering and Darija Kadunić, MA. They particularly paid attention to the authentic elements of old Istrian way of construction. After completing the construction work, in the final architectural part, only the original natural materials were used, such as old tiles covering all the floors. All doors and windows were built according to the designs of old Rovinj buildings and were made of larch wood as a tradition-

28

al material. Windows and doors are framed in stone. A lot of old stone walls were also restored together with drain pipes and the ancient Istrian fireplace. There is Residence Dream on the upper floors. The owners offer 4-star rooms in which the guests can enjoy the quality authentic decoration with all the most modern amenities. This extremely demanding project required not only substantial financial support, patience and knowledge but also love for preservation of heritage and its revival. Therefore the motto of restaurant Dream and its very name are part of J. B. Shaw’s quote: „You DREAM


things and say WHY, but I DREAM things that never WERE and say WHY NOT”. Restaurant Dream consists of two interconnected halls and a winter lounge with an open fireplace. There is also a summer terrace. The interior of Dream is a mix of quality authentic architectural arrangement combined with modern elements. Particular in details, it includes valuable antiquities, tiffany lamps, paintings of academic painters, old photographs, floor mosaics, thonet chairs and the valuable object form the museum of modern art. In accordance with this, in Dream you

will feel the spirit of old times but also the bustle of the city life. In the peace and quiet of the authentic atmosphere, where the old meets the new, you will be able to taste traditional Istrian but also modern specialities. Restaurant Dream prefers Mediterranean culinary heritage and since it has for more than a decade been open all year round, its offer is enriched with promotional and seasonal menus. Bread and pasta are homemade. Particular attention is paid to the atmosphere with selection of music background in accordance with world trends.

Restaurant Giannino is situated in Rovinj and with its rustic elegance it perfectly fits in the image of this magical city. It was opened in 1982. It has been in possession of family Pelizzer and is now run by Nereo Pelizzer. The initial idea was to call it Labyrinth since it reminds of a complicated cave in which Ariadne’s thread could be found. It is a fish restaurant without a permanent

30

menu because the offer depends on the daily catch of local fishermen. Three Rovinj fishermen are assigned to catch fish just for Giannino. This catch goes from lobster and gilt-headed bream to sea bass and sole. The staff will offer you an aperitif made with sparkling wine and fruit. Among about 80 wine labels there are some relic Italian and local wines.

Restaurant Vodnjanka resembles a theatre café or scenography for a theatre performance, or maybe a museum saving the Vodnjan antiquities from oblivion. It is also the exhibition space for local artists. In any case, the owner Svjetlana Celija shares her creativity with her guests and happily watches their reactions often resulting in new ideas. This family-run restaurant-lounge has developed into a cult point of Istrian and Vodnjan gastronomy. Homemade pasta, top quality Istrian pro-

32

sciutto and fine aged cheeses, homemade whey cheese, delicious meat cuts from local “boškarin” ox, warm and energizing soups and Vodnjan desserts have attracted guests to Vodnjanka for decades. Numerous plaques, awards, recognitions, articles in foreign magazines, television shows, interviews and most of all, its guests, speak about the restaurant’s success. Since 2019 Vodnjanka runs in two locations. Citizens of our capital do not need to travel to Istria when they wish to taste Svjetlana’s del-


icacies. The restaurant with the same name and true Istrian cuisine is in Zagreb, 16. Gundulićeva Street. „All carefully selected ingredients that are on the plate have come directly from gardens, mead-

ows or fields around Vodnjan. It is our image: recipes from old foundations, which we enriched by a pinch of aromatic herbs, lavender flowers… and freshness of modern culinary trends. Your satisfaction will be our true and most precious award”, says the owner Svjetlana Celija.

Restaurant Zigante is situated in the heart of Istria, in the village of Livade, not far from Motovun forest between Motovun and Oprtalj. Old course of the river Mirna flows through Livade. Once upon a time, local railway Parenzana also passed through the village. This typical Istrian village attracts domestic and foreign tourists with its peace and abundance of natural beauties and, of course, the fact that one of the oldest truffle habitats in the world is in the neighbouring forest. It was in 1999 near Livade, more precisely, in Motovun forest that Mr. Giancarlo Zigante with his dog Diana came across the largest

white truffle, a specimen of the famous species Tuber Magnatum Pico, of 1.31 kg and which entered the Guinness Book of Records as the largest in the world! This event placed Livade on the map of the world as the centre of this extremely appreciated underground mushroom. Today truffle is an irreplaceable part of world gastronomy. The best restaurants in the world rely on its simplicity, attractiveness and seducing power when creating their menus. Restaurant Zigante, as the first Croatian restaurant specialized on dishes made with Istrian truffle, offers to its guests a carefully designed menu based on fresh truffles during the whole year. The restaurant boasts about


its extremely rich wine offer counting a lot of domestic and foreign wines. Restaurant staff, cooks and sommeliers have received many international acknowledgements for their work. Besides undoubtedly unique menus, the restaurant also organizes business lunches, dinners, tastings… but also truffle hunting. In the building that is the extension of the restaurant, in the renovated Istrian stone house, there are three comfortable, contempo-

rary appointed 4* rooms for those who appreciate relaxing in the peace and quiet of a typical Istrian rural village. „Our guests come from all over the world, but they all share one characteristic: they are gastronomy lovers. Hereby we invite you to visit us, relax in the middle of picturesque Istria and check the seduction of top specialities in restaurant Zigante" - say the hosts.

At the favourite promenade in Opatija - lungo mare, in the romantic ambience of a beautiful park, there is Villa Ariston, one of the oldest and best preserved villas of this region. It was first mentioned in far 1890 as property of Mrs. Ana Pick, widow of Dr. Julius from Ozor in Hungary. In 1898 it became property of baroness Hedwiga von Hass-Teichen from Vienna and in 1908 she commissioned a project from Oswald Meese, the architect of the first hotel in Opatija-Kvarner.

42

Today’s image was achieved by an adaptation that took place from 1915 to 1924, performed by the architect from Vienna and Opatija Carl Seid who turned it into a Mediterranean gem which seems to be protruding from a cliff above the sea. Hotel Villa Ariston, surrounded by a beautiful park, is one of the most charming hotels of Riviera Opatija. It is a location where the atmosphere of past times perfectly meets the modern comfort and first-class service, ideal


for a unique vacation. Chef transfers his creativity to the food and creates unique gastronomic delicacies based on seasonal ingredients. In the restaurant you can experience a har-

mony of tastes and aromas of fish and meat delicacies with a Mediterranean touch. Relying on the quietness of the ambience and discreet service, the staff is keen to satisfy each one of your wishes. They say: „Villa Ariston is the right choice for your dream wedding”.

Restaurant Stancija Kovačići is surrounded with green hills in the small village of Rukavac, only 4 km from Opatija.

The gastronomic offer is based on traditional cuisine and reflects the influence of the climate, vicinity of the sea and the forest, seasons, smells and tastes of the littoral. Fresh seasonal ingredients and local produce are used in

54

daily preparation of food. Fresh bread and pasta are made daily.

…the place where the ingredients become a story about enjoying food. At a peaceful location near the center of Viškovo, a small place near Rijeka, there is restaurant JIST - the place where enjoyment in food of mainly Croatian origin is cherished. Attention is paid to every detail, from quality and top processing of ingredients to the shape of the plates, presentation of food and spotless serving. The restaurant is appointed with love for details. The guests immediately notice handmade furniture perfectly fitting the sophisticated and somewhat peculiar ambience. A rare feature in this area is the refrigerator

56

for dry meat maturation - dry ager - in which meat matures for at least four weeks. That is in fact the secret of the perfect taste offered by the young chef in about thirty different variants and served accompanied by strictly seasonal ingredients. Everything happens in the restaurant’s kitchen: from thinking about ingredients to realization of the dish on the plate. Fine and memorable tastes are accompanied by about forty wine labels of top quality Croatian winemakers, as well as a wide selection of beers and spirits. JIST can rightfully be adorned with the sign - Croatian Fine Dining!

After wandering and discovering secret gastronomic places for several years, brothers Miroslav and Mihael Đipalo figured that domestic Mediterranean cuisine has been neglected and despite the high quality of ingredients available in our country, it is still difficult to find a place where one can feel the Mediterranean as it used to be. Halfway on the path that leads from Crikvenica to Selce, in an old villa from the 1960’, you can find a familyrun restaurant Dida in Crikvenica. In a unique location, in the vicinity of the sea, you will find a place where high gastronomy and true experience of nature meet. The

62

outside terrace is in the park dominated by Mediterranean plants and trees, with a view to the sea and the island of Krk, offering each guest total privacy and peace. Contemporary appointed ambience, designed by architect Boris Frgić, is dominated by an open fireplace which contributes to the warm and pleasant athmosphere. The main concept of the restaurant is the open kitchen which enables every guest to survey the preparation of their meal by „show cooking”. The owner’s ambition is to offer his guests local Mediterranean cuisine with high quality ingredients coming either from the Adriatic Sea or Lika pastures. The menu changes seasonally and according to the availability of the seasonal and local ingredients. Creative team of chefs is a guarantee that you will enjoy unique dishes. There are more than 50 top quality Croatian wines on the wine list. The gastronomic experience is complemented by an oil bar with a varied offer of exquisite oils. „Mediterranean cuisine is an everlasting source of healthy food, tradition and primal tastes”, say brothers Đipalo.

If you are looking for a marina with a nearby restaurant, you are in the right place. At the crossroads of light Mediterranean cuisine, simple island specialties and international influence, new specialties of nautical cuisine are born. The restaurant is located in the heart of the marina. It is a cozy spot for a quick lunch before sailing or calm daily and evening get- togethers at the lights of moored boats and yachts. Original aperitifs with a touch of Mediterranean herbs are followed by traditional specialties of island cuisine, local-

68

ly cured prosciutto and cheese, homemade „ťurlice" pasta, young island lamb, Adriatic calamari, monkfish in white wine, top- quality white fish, crab and mussels accompanied with golden drops of local wines. Local, quality ingredients of rich aromas and tastes from Krk pastures, vineyards and olive groves are given priority when the dishes are prepared. Homemade desserts are just a small part of the symphony of tastes and aromas. The restaurant offers Croatian wines from renowned wine cellars.


Janjeća kruna

Lamb Crown For 4 persons: 1 kg lamb chops (thickly cut), marinade of olive oil, rosemary and garlic, 1 kg potatoes, 100 g diced bacon, onion, rosemary, salt, pepper, olive oil Briefly marinate racks of lamb (4-5 chops). Add some salt and pepper and leave for a short period of time at room temperature. Grill the racks until golden- brown crust is formed and meat is pink inside. Potatoes should be of approximately the same size. Wash them well and boil in skin in salty water. Peel them, cut in fours, briefly roast them in olive oil, bacon and onion and sprinkle with rosemary. If needed, add some salt and pepper. Serve the chops and the potatoes with juices from roasting and some aromatized butter. This visually attractive dish is best in springtime, when there is young Krk lamb available. The most important ingredient is a quality rack of lamb chops. Try to choose less fatty, preferably island lamb because since the animals graze on local pastures where the grass contains a certain amount of sea salt, the meat has a special taste. It does not require a lot of seasoning.

Pour 1 cm of water in the roasting tin and place a couple of rosemary twigs and bay leaf in it. Turn knuckle every 30- 40 minutes, to brown on all sides. If necessary, add more water during roasting. It takes up to 4 hours to complete the roasting, depending on the size of knuckles. Raise temperature to 175 °C for the last 15 minutes so that the skin becomes crispy. Sieve the gravy, add red wine, season some more if necessary and reduce it. Choose a side dish; traditionally, knuckles are served with baked new potatoes and tomato salad.

run by Slovene Franz Jagodič. The beer house Dreher was located behind the building of city administration and it worked all year round. It offered numerous kinds of top quality beers, wines and good food. It had good prices and the possibility of food and drinks delivery. After World War I it was closed. Mr. Vicenzo Bragato opened a shop on the ground floor. After World War II, persuaded by city authorities, caterer Božidar Jukić opened the restaurant Tri palme and in 1979 the catering company Lošnjska plovidba, Turizam redecorated the premises and changed the name to Za kantuni.

Basic features of Dalmatian cuisine are fresh ingredients, simple preparation with a few spices and herbs (parsley, garlic, onion and laurel), without too much experimentation with ingredients or gastronomic novelties. The meal should start with Dalmatian prosciutto and cheese from the island of Pag, salted sardines and seafood salad or marinated fish, all with addition of olives which are pickled differently in each Dalmatian town. Dalmatia is very proud of its high-ranked olive oils (Zlatno ulje). Oysters from Ston are well known.

Restaurant Niko has always been linked to Croatia and the ancient city of Zadar. On 28 February 2013 it celebrated its 50th anniversary. On that occasion it was decorated with a gold medal by the mayor of Zadar. Family Pavin, the owners of the restaurant, explain their success with these words: „Guests feel at home in our restaurant. The dishes we offer are prepared the way they would prepare them themselves.” Restaurant Niko is located in Puntamika, in a quiet suburb of Zadar, on the sea shore. The view of the marina and the old city leaves everybody speechless. Its cuisine is primarily based on seafood. The specialties are green pasta with scampi,

130

fish that guests choose themselves and lobsters from the restaurant’s aquarium. Intimate ambience and relaxed atmosphere are often accompanied by singing of traditional vocal groups. In 2003 a small family-run hotel was opened near the restaurant. It has 15 nicely decorated rooms with every modern amenity. „We are proud to have hosted some celebrities and presented them our Dalmatian gastronomic tradition and European style. Our tradition is based on the care for guests as family members. We are always ready to fulfil all your wishes, right in the vicinity of the sea, accompanied by a song, with a full table, watching the sunset, welcoming you to feel at home" - this is the message of family Pavan.

With its safe harbour and important hinterland, Zadar has always attracted colonizers. We can read about it through its architecture Greek, Roman and Medieval. Fish restaurant Foša is enclosed in the city walls of Zadar port Foša, built in 16th century, near the monumental Porta Terraferma, built by Michele Sanmicheli in 1543. The restaurant’s architecture, interior decoration and gastronomic offer reflects a mixture of Dalmatian and modern trends. Ingredients characteristic for Zadar region are used for dishes which have preserved the tastes of Dalmatian cuisine since ancient

88

times. However, these dishes also meet the requirements of modern diet and creative contemporary gastronomy. The concept of open kitchen (behind a glass) in the middle of the room creates familiarity of the guests with the ingredients and the preparation. Vicinity of the sea and the restaurant terrace are the irreplaceable asset which attracts food lovers to come and complement the gastronomic sensations with those of the landscape. With appearance of one-sort olive oils whose features match certain dish ingredients, staff from Foša recommends different sorts of olive


oil to accompany different dishes. The wine list has been conceptually changed with the emphasis on a large number of Croatian labels and fewer Italian and French ones. Starting

this year, the Champagne list has been supplemented with a number of Croatian sparkling wines.

Restaurant Zrno Soli was opened in 2011 and since then it proudly represents Croatian gastronomy. Situated in Split ACI marina, on the first floor, offering a splendid view of the city of Split, 1,700 years old. It is elegant and cosy, reflecting the famous Dalmatian style „take it easy”. Here you can enjoy long summer evenings and warm winter rhapsody right by the sea, with moorings full of boats and clear Adriatic Sea. A lot of famous guests visited Zrno Soli, many of them returned and became friends

with the hosts, some of them are: the Danish queen, the Thai princess, Guns N’ Roses, management of FC Barcelona, prime ministers, presidents, stars and many others. American actress Ashely Judd personally selected the restaurant for filming scenes of TV series Berlin Station. Zrno Soli posed as a Michelin restaurant and the location of the marina posed as the south of French coast. In 2018 the restaurant received its first recommendation from Michelin, followed by recommendations in 2019 and 2020. From the initial idea of opening the restaurant, the owner Ivo Vrdoljak was led by the idea that the main goal of each gastronomic project, therefore also that of Zrno Soli, is to welcome each guest, i.e. to please them. Attention is paid to food (always fresh fish, local ingredients and always something new) and service. The ingredient must be fresh, local and processed so that all goodness is kept. The name of the restaurant, beside its literal meaning of „a grain of salt" has a deeper meaning, too. Salt is everywhere around us, salt is life, it is mentioned in the Gospel of Matthew, and life is linked to the sea, i.e. to salt.

During the 12th, 13th and 14th century, at the time when Omiš was ruled by families Kačić and Šubić, Slanica was a safe haven of famous Omiš pirates. After the 14th century, when strong Turkish forces appeared in the neighbourhood of Omiš and Poljice, a marketplace was built in Slanica - it was a station for salt trade between the people from Omiš and the Turks. This is where the name Slanica comes from (root of the word is „salt" in Croatian language). In the beautiful canyon of river Cetina, a Karst beauty, only 4 km from where it flows into the sea, on the Mediaeval ruins of the marketplace, today’s restaurant Kaštil Slanica was built. Tower Slanica is a monument from the 16th century. You can reach the restaurant by car, on foot

114

or by boat which leaves from Omiš bridge. Restaurant Kaštil Slanica, as a part of several-century long history of the canyon, boasts with a particular ambience linking its gastronomic offer to its surroundings and history. Besides offering peace, beauty and relaxation in the clash between the Mediterranean and continental regions, the sea and the river, the sirocco and the northern wind „bura”, it also offers homemade specialties. As the famous Omiš pirates, you can enjoy dishes made with ingredients from Cetina (frogs, eels, trout), the sea (fish specialties) and traditional dishes from this region such as the bread and meat prepared under the iron lid (“cripnja" or „peka”), lamb on the spit, „spuži”, „soparnik" and homemade „fritule”. There is a playground for children near the


restaurant. In a magical ambience of the restaurant Kaštil Slanica by the Island of Love, friendly hosts organize weddings and other events for up to 230 persons. Restaurant Kaštel Slanica is the winner of national award Suncokret ruralnog turizma (Sunflower of Rural Tourism) in category

Traditional Gastronomy in 2015. Restaurant Kaštil Slanica is the winner of national award „Simply the best" in category Catering Facilities with its offer of traditional food and drinks in rural area in 2016. In 2017 Kaštil Slanica has received the international award, „Touristic prizma" for the new quality in tourism.

Restaurant Knez is located in the historic town of Omiš, within hotel Villa Dvor. The owner, Mr. Petar Ćurlin is also the restaurant chef. „In our cuisine you may taste original Poljice specialties prepared from ecological ingredients from our own farm and following traditional recipes more than 400 years old. So Poljice „soparnik" is the original dish of ancient inhabitants of Poljice protected by UNESCO as Croatian non-material heritage. Dining in our restaurant, you will enjoy the panoramic view of the Cetina river canyon, the old town, the sea and the island of Brač. Lovers of good wine can enjoy the house wines or selected Dalmatian wines”, say the owners.

116

Majority of ingredients used in the restaurant are from the garden near the restaurant on the Cetina river. Organic waste is composted and turned into humus which is then used as fertilizer in the garden. Most of the ingredients needed to prepare meals in our restaurant, we grow in our organic garden near the restaurant. The organic waste is composted, and then of compost with the help of Red californian earth worms produce humus of top quality, on which we grow all the vegetables needed. Since 2nd November 2010, the hotel and the restaurant hold the eco-certificate „friend of the environment”.


Poljički soparnik Poljice soparnik is considered to be a part of Croatian cultural heritage and is listed as a protected non- material cultural good by UNESCO and the Ministry of Culture. Preparation of traditional Soparnik (also known as zeljanik, uljenak, prisnac) is characteristic for the region of Mediaeval Republic of Poljice which spread between the rivers of Žrnovnica and Cetina, to the sea in the south and to mountain Mosor on the north. In the past, Soparnik was a poor dish, prepared for days of fasting, Good Friday, Christmas Eve and the eve of All Saints Day. It was, however, also prepared for harvesters, to treat guests and friends. Today, it is prepared on important occasions so that it has become a symbol of the old Republic of Poljice. This is the traditional recipe from Gornje Poljice, transmitted from generation to generation in family Ćurlin, from 17th century.

Poljice „Soparnik” For dough: all-purpose wheat flour, preferably ground in water mill; water, salt For filling: shredded Swiss chard (larger leaves) picked on the previous day, washed and left to dry, sliced onion, olive oil, salt. Prepare dough, cover it with cloth and leave to rest for one or two hours. Depending on the size of the baking tray, make balls and roll them to 1 cm thick layer. For one soparnik, you need two layers. Season the shredded Swiss chard and onions with olive oil and salt. Sprinkle this mixture on the bottom layer. Cover with the other layer and pinch the edges together. Soparnik is traditionally baked on open fire for about 15 minutes. The temperature should be 180 degrees C. Soparnik is covered with ashes and embers. After it is removed from the open fire, it is cleaned from ashes and rubbed with finely chopped garlic and olive oil. It is cut in diamondshaped pieces. It can be eaten warm or cold. The best is hot. 117

Each detail in the restaurant’s interior, exterior and offer is cared for with extreme attention and emotion, just like the restaurant’s name, Gariful, which is a word for a special flower, carnation, the flower of reconciliation symbolizing adoration, respect and deep emotions. All this is contained in the motto of this family- run restaurant in which all is directed towards realization of a higher gastronomic, but also comprehensive enjoyment and experience. The restaurant run by emotions has reached the status of an elite restaurant visited by celebrities from all over the world.

In Orebić, a place with rich maritime tradition, within hotel Adriatic, there is restaurant Stari kapetan. The outside part of the restaurant is on a replica of a17th century old sailing boat, right next to the sea. The interior tells a historic story with numerous ship mementos. Traditional cuisine perfectly fits this story since it has been composed of seafood and fresh local vegetables. Guests mostly choose fish often caught by the owner himself. Popular dishes are octopus „buzzara" style, black risotto and mussels from Mali Ston. The owner Igor Mikulić is also the chef, assisted by his creative team.

„To sail with Stari kapetan to historic-gastronomic pleasure, combined with the best Pelješac wines is a memorable experience. It will be fulfilled with lodging in one of six luxurious rooms in Boutique Hotel Adriatic. It is an elegant and charming hotel with carefully designed rooms up to the last detail with impeccable service putting the guest in the centre of attention in order to make one feel at home. With its authentic interior decoration it preserves the suggestive atmosphere of a historic residence transformed into a real artistic form in the heart of Orebić.”, say the hosts.

In Pile, near the sea, on the very entrance to the old city center, there is restaurant Nautika. From its terrace you will enjoy the unique and unforgettable view of the sea and fortresses Lovrijenac and Bokar. Chef Mario Bunda with his team of young cooks, among other specialities, prepare live lobsters from the island of Vis and other fine delicacies from the aquatorium of the Adriatic Sea. Nautika is located in the old maritime school in which Dubrovnik captains were educated from 1881 to 1954. This is where its name comes from. Even today, the building reminds us of the rich past and golden era of Dubrovnik

File od tune

Republic. Magazine Conde Nast Traveller put Nautica on the sixth place among the most romantic restaurants in the world for year 2008. The restaurant staff had the pleasure to host Pope John Paul II during his visit to Dubrovnik on 6 June 2003. The chefs naturally continue what the nature had started - to preserve and improve the natural tastes. „In Nautika tradition, quality and creativity are united creating a completely new „elevated" dimension of Mediterranean cuisine”, say the hosts.

Tuna Fillet Cut tuna in a stick 10 cm long and 3 cm thick. Then grate zucchini to make „spaghetti”. Season zucchini with salt, pepper, olive oil and lemon juice. Roast heads of garlic cut in half. Squeeze them when done, boil twice in milk, add salt, sugar, butter and cream. Wash and dry capers. Put them in the oven to dry completely. Blend them into a powder. When every ingredient is ready, grill three cubes of tuna and serve on garlic stripes, with zucchini in the middle of the plate. Decorate with a flower.

Gorski kotar, Lika, Karlovac and surroundings, Moslavina Fruits of forests and mountain rivers are the basic determinants of this gastronomic zone. The best way to start a meal is with cheese „škripavac" and smoked bacon or deer, boar or bear prosciutto with „uštipci" (fried pieces of dough) or homemade round bread „pogača”. What follows are noodles with mushrooms, lamb soup with cured meat, cured mutton leg in sour cabbage or sour turnip or sour cabbage with cured ribs and sausages. When main courses are considered, one should try lamb or pork from the spit or under the iron bell (“peka”), stuffed veal breast, venison dishes, breaded frog legs or trout prepared in many ways. In Moslavina region one should definitely try white polenta with baked cream, gratinated beans, corn „zlevanka" or „balzamača" (typical dishes made with corn flour). A lot of specialties from this region are based on cream and pumpkin. The most famous autochthonous sort of wine is Škrlet. Association Škrlet consists of eight producers who even produced a common wine. Among white wines most

present are Graševina, Chardonnay and Pinot blanc (Winery Šoštar) and among red wines Frankovka (Winery Šoštar). With deserts, we recommend Muškat Otonel and aromatic Traminac (Winary Šoštar). In the town of Karlovac, all year round about 10 restaurants offer dishes prepared with beer and mushrooms as main ingredients. More than 1000 mushroom pickers bring their mushrooms to a collection point Vendrija, from where they are distributed to restaurants. Restaurant DP in Donji Zvečaj offers local gastronomic dishes but also specialties from other regions and creative dishes. The same is true for restaurants Frankopan in Ogulin, Djed in Hrvatska Kostajnica, August in Popovača and Cocktail in Sisak. Authentic specialties are served in Mirjana & Rastoke in Donji Nikšić while restaurant Žganjer in Ozalj is mostly specialized in preparation of lamb. Hunter’s cuisine is preferred in Lovački dom Muljava in Vojnić, Lovački rog in Karlovac and Gradina in Josipdol.

Važnost autohtone sorte škrlet prepoznali su moslavački vinari Ilovčak, Jaram, Florijanović, Miklaužić, Mikša, Trdenić, Voštinić-Klasnić i Kezele koji su svoje snage ujedinili u Poljoprivrednu organizaciju „Škrlet“ osnovanu 2016. godine. Prilikom znanstveno-stručnog skupa "Novo ruho Škrleta" i manifestacije "Večer škrleta i moslavačke kuhinje" sedam proizvođača vina: Ilovčak, Jaram, Florijanović, Miklaužić, Mikša, Trdenić i Voštinić-Klasnić okupljeni u Udrugu proizvođačke organizacije "Škrlet", premijerno su predstavili zajednički projekt od istoimene autohtone sorte grožđa “Škrlet Moslavina – Croatia – EU 2019.” Radi se o kupaži dobivenoj od odabranog grožđa s najboljih položaja moslavačkih vinara koju proizvode pod zajedničkom etiketom u ograničenom izdanju od 5000 boca. Stilizirani ovnek na etiketi ujedno je postao i zaštitni znak autohtone sorte iz Moslavine zbog ovnolikog oblika grozda škrleta te starog naziva te sorte „Ovnek žuti“. Kvalitetno vino Škrlet odlikuje nizak sadržaj alkohola i nešto viši sadržaj ukupnih kiselina što ga čini osvježavajućim, pitkim i uravnoteženim. Nježnih je i nenametljivih, specifično voćnih cvjetnih aroma s blagim herbalnim primjesama. Najbolje se sljubljuje uz jela lagane strukture, povišene svježine i srednje aromatike.

Small towns acquire charm and affection by their interesting achievements which permanently attracts their citizens but also those from their surroundings, near and far so that such towns become recognized forever. If you are ever in Sisak, there is a restaurant in the city center called Cocktail, decorated at world standards but keeping the real tastes of Sisak region. The restaurant itself is the very reason for some visitors to keep coming back to Sisak. Brothers Sanjin (waiter) and Goran (cook) Kramarić have been additionally educated in Croatia and abroad.

The restaurant terrace has a small park with a fountain. The atmosphere is relaxing and the staff has always practised individual approach to each guest. The taste and smell of food that you are going to taste will entrap you because what your palate tries, it never forgets. Since restaurant Cocktail is oriented to gastronomy (Greek gastronomia - knowledge of various dishes and the way they are prepared, cult of selected food and culinary expertise), here you can taste fine dishes prepared with the best ingredients from the area. There are traditional dishes from Posavsko-moslovačka region, Mediterranean


dishes and also results of research and inventions: creative cooking, revisited dishes and specific menus. The restaurant also offers catering services.

About a hundred of white, red and rose wines of continental and Mediterranean Croatia are also served here.

Zagreb and surrounding area

In Zagreb, just like in any capital, all Croatian and many foreign cuisines are present. Old Zagorje specialties served in special surroundings are at home in Stari Puntijar. Within the object there is a Museum of Gastronomy. Zinfandel follows trends of world gastronomy in exclusive atmosphere of Hotel Esplanade. In Noel they offer tasting menus with innovative specialties. Mediterranean cuisine is the inspiration in Mon ami. Tekka’s offer is inspired by Japanese, while Sofra Borovje and Sofra Green Gold offer is inspired by Bosnian-Herzegovinian cuisine. In Zelen Dvor there are dishes from Zagorje and Gorski Kotar and in Muzej those from the Mediterranean. Specialties prepared with ingredients coming from small farms are the winning card of Potkova in Zagreb and Karlo in Plješivica.

In Zagreb you can find wines from all regions. Autochthonous sorts are kraljevina and portugizac. Zelina Wine Road near-by combines a handful of wineries worth visiting. From autochthonous varieties we suggest starting a meal with sparkling wine made of kraljevina (sparkling wine Nikolina Vinarija Kos&Jurišić). We also recommend Rhine Riesling and Pinot blanc with fine freshwater and sea fish, Graševina with cold cuts; spicier and heavier dishes, with white meat and freshwater fish and with grilled dishes, Chardonnay with dishes made of white meat, crab and frogs, Sauvignon with dishes made of white meat in more distinguished sauces and with boiled fish. As for dishes made of dark meat, you can try Pinot noir, Kerner (Kos & Jurišić) or feel the spirit of Zagreb in Portugizac.

SOFRA BOROVJE

The name Sofra comes from the Turkish word for a low table around which people sit on the floor or on cushions. The history of Sofra is linked to the history of Bosnian cuisine intertwined with the history of Bosnia as a country on the crossroads of the East and the West, with a lot of remnants from Turkish reign but also other cultures. For example, „burek” as a dish comes from Persia but it has been on the menu of traditional Bosnian cuisine since the far 1462, when a famous Sarajevo „aščinica” (traditional Bosnian restaurant) offered it first. The most tasteful Bosnian specialties are blended with authentic Bosnian atmosphere- this tradition has been cherished in restaurants. In Zagreb, Sofra is synonymous of tasty Bosnian food, dishes that take you back to the

166

30

forgotten experience of eating…. Sofra Borovje opened in 2006 at a wellknown address in Borovje area. The story continued with another opening, that of Sofra in Point Center Vrbani in 2014. „Our restaurants are intended for those that look for excellent food prepared following old but also new recipes. Come and visit us and try our delicacies we have prepared for you. We organize all kinds of celebrations such as weddings, birthday parties, christenings, holy communions, business meetings and other private events. On weekends you can enjoy live music and if you plan to come in a larger group, you are advised to book your table in advance”, say the owners. In Bosnia and Herzegovina, they enjoy pre-


Musaka

paring food and drinks, which is taken really seriously. The food is prepared slowly, the meals are abundant, mostly made with meat, dairy products, vegetables and desserts. Spirits and coffee are an unavoidable part of the ritual. The guests are particularly happy with „meze”, i.e. enjoying food and drinks which can take the entire day. In Bosnian cuisine there is no roux, there are no hot spices, or they are used sparingly. Bosnian dishes are mostly light, they are cooked and simmered with a little water (most-

Baklava

Bamija

ly stock) so they maintain their natural flavour. Most common spices in Bosnian cuisine are: pepper, ground paprika and oriental spices in minimal quantities. Coffee is drunk a lot, brewed in „đezva” (copper pot) and usually drank from „fildžan”. Coffee is usually accompanied with „rahatluk” (a sweet made with walnuts or figs). Restaurant Sofra offers a rich selection of brandies served in traditional „čokanjčići” and top quality wines from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia and the world.

In the center of Krapinske Toplice, within a small exclusive hotel Villa Magdalena, there is the first fine dining restaurant of Hrvatsko Zagorje. Along with classy appointed rooms where each unit has a jacuzzi with direct connection to thermal water and all guests have access to panoramic wellness and spa oases with saunas, fitness, swimming pool, whirlpool and relax zone, there is also the restaurant with a view of the surrounding area and special presentation of dishes. The restaurant’s offer is based on „New creative Zagorje cuisine”, served somewhat differently than expected. The gourmet story of this restaurant, which

182

has been awarded several international prizes, starts and finishes with recognized and perfectioned combination of traditional Zagorje cuisine and elements of modern world cuisines. Menus change seasonally and bring the best of each season. Gluten free, vegetarian, vegan and macrobiotic dishes are prepared on request. The restaurant has won many local and foreign awards for its quality. Besides Zagorje „štrukli”, meat from „tiblica”, slowly roasted veal, ice- cream and cake with pumpkin oil, we recommend homemade pasta with duck confit. When duck is cooked in fat with spices for several hours, the colla-


gen melts and releases meat juices forming gelatine which complements the taste of the dish. Chestnut and sheep cheese enrich this delicacy.

„Enjoy the tastes of Zagorje while your view is attracted by the sky and Zagorje hills”, say the hosts.

Slavonia and Baranja

Basic features of cuisine in Slavonia and Baranja are hearty servings of delicious and somewhat spicy dishes. Trends of „healthy diet" have not come to life in majority of Slavonian restaurants. For starters they usually serve spicy salami „kulen”, fresh cottage cheese sprinkled with sweet red paprika and Slavonian ham served with pickled vegetables. Products from black Slavonian pig are also becoming popular. Hot starter is usually „čobanac" (spicy soup-like stew) or fish stew with homemade pasta and bread rolls made with pork fat. There are then many specialties made with freshwater fish - carp, catfish, zander and sturgeon or meat specialties like „kotlovina" (various meats prepared in a special pot), grilled meat and steaks filled with Slavonian ham, cheese, mushrooms, chicken stew and venison in various ways. „Sataraš" (a kind of ratatouille) or „ajvar" (traditional preserve made with peppers and aubergines) are served as side dishes. For dessert you should try various traditional cakes made with cottage cheese, wal-

nuts or poppy seeds (“gužvara”, „orehnjača”, „makovnjača" and strudels). The most well- known sort of white grapes and wine is „graševina" (Riesling The share of graševina in Croatian sorts is 25% and in wine trade even more, 31%). Within Erdut vineyards there is the largest wine barrel in the world, filled with 75,000 l of wine. Special line of of wines for hospitality industry is called after it, The Big Barrel. To accompany cold cuts, fish dishes and white meats we recommend dry Graševina. Dishes with white meats in sauces go well with Chardonnay, Sauvignon and Traminer. Dark meats and venison are best accompanied by red, dry Frankovka, Pinot noir, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Slavonian and traditional specialties characterize restaurants Zlatni lug in Donji Emovci, Schön blick in Vetovo, Višnjica in Višnjica, Kod Ruže in Osijek, Kormoran in Bilje, Josić in Zmajevac and Baranjska kuća in Karanac.

Carp on Fork For 4 persons: 2- 2.5 kg carp, 2 tablespoons salt, 1 teaspoon ground sweet paprika, 1Â tablespoon ground hot red paprika Clean the carp, remove the gills and intestines and cut it along the spine in two parts. Rinse it in water and pat dry. Season the carp with salt and sweet and hot paprika and leave it to marinate for 12 hours. Split the wooden fork half- way and fasten the carp to the fork with thin wire. Light fire and when enough embers are made, stick the fork with the carp to the ground not too close to the fire. After about 15 minutes, bring the carp closer. First turn the side with skin to the fire. Then turn the other side. The carp is roasted for about an hour, turning it every 10 minutes or so, until the fat drips from the fish and until reddish- brown. Never put the fish on direct fire in order not to burn it. After the fish is done, remove it from the fork and serve with potato salad.

FlexiChef predstavljen u Gastroprojekt salonu U novouređenom izložbeno-prezentacijskom salonu tvrtke Gastroprojekt, nedavno je predstavljen višenamjenski aparat za kuhanje FlexiChef njemačkog proizvođača MKN. Na prezentaciji koju su vodili profesionalni kuhari iz Gastroprojekta, testirale su se sve performanse uređaja. FlexiChef spaja više uređaja u jednom te omogućuje kuhanje, pečenje, prženje i brzo kuhanje, pritom štedeći prostor, vrijeme i energiju potrebnu za pripremu namirnica. Posjeduje automatski sustav čišćenja i to bez korištenja deterdženta. Jednostavan za uporabu, brz i fleksibilan, ovaj uređaj optimizira cijeli postupak kuhanja, dok Touch & Slide korisničko sučelje i navigacijski sustav vode korisnika kroz proces. Gastroprojekt je inače zastupnik cjelokupnog programa profesionalne ugostiteljske opreme poznatih svjetskih proizvođača poput MKN, Meiko, Mareno, Miele i mnogih drugih. Sva oprema može se pogledati u salonu i testirati uz prethodno dogovorenu prezentaciju s profesionalnim kuharom. Novi salon nalazi se na adresi A. Cesarca 2 u Rakitju pokraj Zagreba.
