Food Tour Zagreb
Croatian cuisine is very diverse and every region of Croatia has its own distinct culinary tradition. Its roots date back to ancient times. The differences in the selection of foodstuffs and forms of cooking are most notable between those in the mainland and those in coastal regions. Mainland cuisine is more characterized by the earlier Slavic and the more recent contacts with Germany, Hungarian and Turkish 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, as well as of the later Mediterranean cuisine, in particular Italian (especially Venetian). Coastal cuisines use olive oil, and herbs and 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 and try all the specialties. I will help you with all your question about the Croatian food and history which made our cuisine so diverse.
