Luckily, I have an ace up my blogging sleeve, thanks to the generosity of regular reader and commenter, Dottoressa, who has been introducing us to the cuisine of her country, Croatia. If you missed her first post in this series, you will find it here. Otherwise, please enjoy the second instalment, and I hope you'll let Dottoressa and I know what you think -- especially if you try any of the recipes she's offered here and in the last post or if you've had a chance to try any Croatian food or wine, either in Croatia or exported elsewhere.
(EDITED Saturday to add the final photo, a text conversation noting Croatian wines available in BC)
Again, thanks so much, Dottoressa, for sharing your country's cuisine with us. Readers, I know from previous posts that Dottoressa will respond generously to any comment you care to leave. And let us know if any of you are motivated to serve up one of these dishes in the near future. Meanwhile, Happy Weekend, wherever you are!
And for those of my BC readers interested in tracking down Croatian wines here, I texted my daughter-in-law, who is trained as a sommelier and works as a wine rep for a Wine and Spirits Importer and Distributor. She's so generous and knowledgeable, and she quickly sent me an answer, as you can see below. Thanks, Joey. I think I'm going to be drinking some fine Croatian wine very soon (as practice for a possible trip to Zagreb in the next year or so, I hope!)
