Hvala sestrična!

A new cookbook I recently received from my cousin Tina. A feast for the eyes…

Hvala sestrična!

“Who could have imagined that good “spinach”, which the locals refer to as “višče” (foliage) could have been made from turnip shoots? And what of zelševka – a variation of the ubiquitous potica cake from the town of Idrija – made from chives, onion shoots, young yarrow, mint and tarragon. A similar dish, but even more diverse in its ingredients, is prepared in the Brda district for Easter – all sorts of “weeds” are collected to prepare this herbal pie.” (p115)



  1. Hvala bratranec.
    Upam, da ti je knjiga všeč.
