Pašticada is a popular dish in Dalmatia. It’s a type of beef stew that takes hours to make. After the beef has been marinated, it’s lightly fried then stewed with tomatoes, red wine and seasoning. The beef just melts in the mouth. Pašticada is often served with gnocchi or polenta.

Fritules, yummy little doughnuts

Everyone loves fritules! They’re little doughnuts usually made around Christmas time but also for other major celebrations. These sweet treats are made with distilled alcohol such as rum, for example.  Raisins, apple or other fruits are added to the fritule to make them really gooey and tasty.
