What’s for the lunch ?

The smell of lunch is the smell of Croatia

There are a lot of stories about famous Croatian Cuisine. Besides the beautiful sightings throughout every step of our Lijepa Naša, what Croatians call our homeland country, Croatia is well known for its diverse cuisine, which is an interesting mix of all kinds of influences from its surrounding countries.

But the thing about lunch (ručak in Croatian) is the most important issue of the day! Every day!

This is what we live and talk about and eat every day, but when you hear it from our citizen American Cody Mcclain Brown Croatian Zet (Son in Law, blogger, professor, journalist, author, father, and husband), your first reaction is to start laughing, a loud!

Yes – that’s the absolute truth! Every day, right after lunch, which is (as in Italy) the main meal of the day and usually in around 1 PM, or case (the most cases) for young families at right after everybody gets home,  as I said – I mean right after The lunch- the most important question is; Što je sutra za ručak/ What’s for lunch tomorrow?

While, in the rest of the world, well the biggest part of the western world, people have light ‘something’ for, what we call in Croatia, lunch – we seriously approach that very important matter!

So, when in Croatia, do what Croats do…let’s have lunch…and don’t forget to ask, right after, What’s for lunch, tomorrow?
