“Skradin is very nice town in Dalmatian hinterland also known by its river Krka and waterfalls just few miles upstream. There is also a beautiful monastery Visovac in the vicinity of these waterfalls. I go there at least once a year. This recipe has some Turkish origin because this area was on the border of the Ottoman Empire and Habsburg’s Empire. Croats were just soldiers on the border and receiving various gastronomic influences (Venice, Austrian, Hungarian, and Turkish).”
