Čobanac, fiš paprikaš, cicvara, čvarkuše, bazlamača, tachkrle..., there is a long list of traditional dishes Golden Slavonia which the local population does not leave forgotten, and the guests recognize as a valuable tourist asset and reason for visiting this destination.
An esteemed Croatian chef and a great fan of Slavonian dishes Branko Ognjenović says that the secret of this cuisine lies in the excellence of local ingredients, simplicity and the combination of top wines and dishes from the same climate.
"Black pig products, among which the spicy kulen, a good ham, which can be put to great use in the kitchen, stands out in particular; pork with roasted potatoes, prepared in the skin and in homemade lard; cracklings, sausages and bacon rose... is a long list of dishes that you must try in Požega-Slavonia County. And I'm also a big fan of dough: noodles with poppy seeds and tatkrles are a real feast for the palate", reveals chef Ognjenović.
Although the story of the eno-gastro offer in this part of Slavonia also has a traditional sign, its modern version is very attractive and tasty, so examples include sweet potato with kulen and acacia honey, pumpkin risotto with mushrooms and black pig bacon, baked apples with cinnamon in vanilla... And we can't decide which dish is tastier.
