Probably the most traditional of Croatia’s traditional dishes, Zagorski Štrukli is a popular dish served largely in households across Hrvatsko Zagorje and Zagreb regions in the north of the country. Composed of dough and various types of filling, usually cheese, Štrukli can be either cooked or baked. In 2007 Zagorski Štrukli were inducted into the list of Croatia’s intangible cultural heritage, maintained by Croatia’s ministry of culture.
