AN OPTIONAL: Food Tour Zagreb
Croatian cuisine is very diverse. In other words, every region of Croatia has its own culinary tradition. The differences in the selection of foodstuffs and forms of cooking are most notable between the “mainland” and “coastal region”. Mainland cuisine is more characterized by the earlier Slavic, Germany and Hungarian cuisine. Using lard for cooking, and spices such as black pepper, paprika, and garlic. The coastal region bears the influences of the Greek and Roman cuisine. Coastal cuisines use olive oil, spices such as rosemary, sage, bay leaf, oregano, marjoram, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, and lemon and orange rind. Zagreb is the capital of Croatia and we are lucky to have food from the whole country. We will visit a couple of restaurants in the City center which offer traditional food. Our guide will help you with all your questions about Croatian food and history which made our cuisine so diverse.
