We would love you to join us for an evening of Food & Stories from Croatia with Barbara Unkovic
Timer & again we have been asked why there are no Croatian cookbooks available - something that has been a mystery to us given the beauty & simplicity of the food. Well, the wait is over!
We are delighted to be hosting Barbara Unkovich for an evening in our kitchen to celebrate the launch of her soon-to-be-published book - The Adriatic Kitchen. Join us on Thursday April 6 for an evening of Food & Stories......
Details on how to book are below.
Barbara 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.
Barbara Unkovic was born in Whangarei the daughter of a Croatian father and an English mother, and is in fact, D H Lawrence’s cousin. She is the author of six published books: Barbara is the recipient of more than thirty writing awards in the United Kingdom and the United States, including three International Book Awards and one USA Best Book Award for her books 'Weeds in the Garden of Eden', 'A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing' and 'Moon Walking'.
