The best of the Croatian cuisine
Croatian cuisine is very diverse, however, in the coastal region it is almost uniquely based on the Italian influence and the flavors are rather Mediterranean. The cuisine uses a lot of olive oil, fish and other seafood such as squid, octopus, mussels and shrimps, fresh herbs, spices and vegetables, such as rosemary, sage, oregano, lemon and tomato. When thinking about what to eat in Croatia, do not miss the delicious prosciutto and cheese, the latter mostly produced on the islands. An important companion of the food are the delicious wines from both Istria and Dalmatia. Desserts include fritule (deep-fried dough), kroštule (crunchy deep-fried pastry), the rožata (creme caramel) and many more.
