Publishers Text

This cookbook of Croatian desserts in English features 50 easy-to-make recipes. The author Andrea Pisac collected them through meticulous ethnographic research, then tried and tested them in her own kitchen to tell us that everyone can try their hand at baking.

The desserts included come from all around Croatia: Dalmatia, Istria, Slavonia, Baranja, Zagorje and Medimurje. The usual suspects are all here: walnut and poppy seed roll (potica, povitica or orehnjaca), fritule, štrukli, peppery biscuits (paprenjaci), Medimurje layered cake (medimurska gibanica), kremšnite, madarica and many more.

All the ingredients are expressed both in grams and cups so the Croatian sweets can easily travel across the globe. The cookbook stands out with its super-detailed step-by-step method. There are 515 full-colour images accompanying detailed instruction. Both novice and experienced bakers will have no difficulties recreating Croatian cakes.

The cookbook is divided into chapters: Lazy Morning, Sunday Sweets, Special Occasions, Cakes, Christmas Sweets and Easter Sweets. Each dessert is introduced with an engaging culinary biography where Andrea gives us details about its origin, when it is usually prepared and how it is eaten.
