Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Roast tomato and red capsicum (bell pepper) soup

    • consortiumlibrary on September 16, 2017

      Super easy and very good. Throw veggies in oven, when done simmer briefly in stock, puree, and serve. As usual, I doubled the garlic and added Aleppo pepper - and was glad I did. Balsamic adds, as do chopped herbs on top (basil, oregano, thyme, whatever). Easy enough I'm adding to the "busy weeknight" rotation. Would be good with simple cheese panini.

  • Fig and rocket (arugula) salad

    • Avocet on July 29, 2018

      Very good salad. Used chevre instead of mozzarella.

  • Octopus salad (Salata od hobotnice)

    • Frogcake on July 19, 2017

      This dish is commonly served in the bistros along the Dalmatian coast and islands. Great recipe! The secret is very fresh octopus.

  • Four cheese pizza with sage and capers

    • Frogcake on July 19, 2017

      Great recipe! I couldn't resist throwing some anchovies on this pizza. Some might think it's too much with the Gorgonzola cheese but no one complained. This is a pizza bursting with flavours.

  • Black risotto (Crni rižoto od sipe)

    • Frogcake on July 19, 2017

      Chicken stock works but really fresh fish stock and cuttlefish make this dish over the top. We loved this recipe!

Barbara Unkovic has always been drawn to the land of her father, the sun-soaked Croatian island of Korcula in the Adriatic Sea. She spent several years living there, in the seaside village of Racisce, immersed in its way of life, its culture, history and food. Now, inspired by the island's culinary traditions and its abundance of fresh, seasonal ingredients, Barbara has produced The Adriatic Kitchen, a delightful, rustic cookbook full of gorgeous recipes and evocative memories. Over 70 simple yet delicious recipes are included, such as Croatian Sweet Easter Bread; Black Risotto; Fresh Fig Crumble; Roast Chicken with Pomegranate and Spinach; Dalmatian Shepherd's Lamb with Potatoes and Broad Beans; Sugared Almonds; Croatian Pepper Biscuits; Carrot and Mint Salad. Infused with the warmth and vibrancy of Barbara's beloved island, The Adriatic Kitchen is a must-have cookbook for those wanting to experience traditional food at its best.
