In the North and the East of Croatia, you can see rich Pannonian cuisine, which is mostly contained in meat of all kinds, either as dry and sliced edibles, mostly finger food, like Kulen, or as delicious meat stews with a variety of vegetables which take you back to some old times where a kind grandmother would prepare a dish like that.

Moving to the inside of the country, mostly Zagreb and surrounding provinces, there is a strong Middle European influence originating from the Austro-Hungarian Empire, so dishes like schnitzels with potatoes (or the more Zagreb version – turkey with mlinci, (a kind of flatbread) are no stranger to any chef or housewife who grew up in the capital.

The cuisine that most represents Croatia in the world is definitely the one originating from the seaside. From Istria on the very North, which is known for its fuži (a special kind of homemade pasta) and world-famous truffles searched by specially trained dogs, you can taste excellent fish dishes throughout Dalmatia as well as varieties of pasta dishes.

In little local restaurants (called „konoba“) you can eat as the locals do, all prepared with ingredients grown in their own gardens together with domestic fish caught that morning by local fishermen.
It’s no secret that Croatia holds an important place on the world wine map, and every part of the country, starting from Ilok on the very Northeast to the most southern parts surrounding Dubrovnik, produces excellent wine with a legendary reputation, often compared to the finest ones from France, Italy, Chile etc. In many restaurants, you can have a chance to taste wine made locally by the owner, which gives the whole gastronomic experience an autochthonous touch.
