One of the UK’s top chefs, Dhruv Baker, was in Croatia early this year filming 20 half-hour episodes for the TV culinary travelogue around Croatia titled ‘Croatia’s Finest’.


The show, which presents culinary, cultural, historical and general tourist attractions around Croatia, has just started being broadcast on the National Geographic Channel in Asia on Saturday evenings on Nat Geo People Asia and will be shown in China, Japan, India, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, Bahrain, UAE and parts of Africa.


Croatia’s Finest is also started on the British channel Holiday & Cruise TV- Sky Channel.

Baker traveled all over Croatia and cooked in a number of well known locations such as Plitvice Lakes, Zadar’s sea organ and in Pula’s Arena.


“More than half a billion people in 90 countries will have a chance over the next three years to watch the show and get to know Croatia and that is one of the biggest promotions of Croatia and her products in the world so far”, the production team said in a statement.
