Croatian Recipes: Kroštule



Croatia Week and Fini Recepti bring you your favourite Croatian recipes in English…

Croatian TV chef Almo Čatlak this year completed 10 years of his cooking show ‘TV-kuhanja’ (TV-cooking). Čatlak’s show, which shows viewers how to prepare a meal from start to finish in a 3-4 minute clip, was broadcast on Croatian TV for the past decade. In that period Čatlak has produced over 2,000 videos.


Kroštule – a traditional Dalmatian pastry, are great to whip up any time of the year – especially over Christmas.
