Korcula, Croatia

We ate in the shade of a glorious walnut tree as the warm, sun settled behind us. Our kind hosts served up a simple meal of grilled pork, bread, blitva – a traditional Dalmation dish, and salad made with home-grown vegetables and home-made wine.


It’s not just a beach on an island that draws our family back year after year; as a child, my dad used to go swimming at the same beach where we taught our boys to swim. He would jump off the highest point on the pier, even once riding his bicycle into the ocean. This year I finally got to see inside the little room where my great grandmother used to cook (called a komin) and watch local women make my favourite food in the world, prsurate.

  • Good day and I love your blog! We are spending a month in Croatia in September finding off the beaten path places to photograph and bring back to South Africa to market as a holiday destination for South Africans. I would love to meet some of the local people and photograph some local food preparation to market through our food and wine magazines. Would you be able to put us onto any of the local people who may be interested in showing us their beautiful country and remote places? Thank you kindly
