‘Čvarci’ Win Superior Taste Award in Brussels

facebookAround 20 Croatian food products have been awarded the “Superior Taste Award” in Brussels by the International Taste & Quality Institute…

Among the Croatian food products awarded last night in Belgium were čvarci. Once a cheap rustic countryside specialty, the Croatian pork scratching have now become an expensive delicacy. Preparation of čvarci involves melting the lard. Lard is cut in blocks of about one inch (2 cm) in size and slowly fried in their own fat. Milk may be added at this point in order to obtain the caramel colour. Process lasts until all fat melts away and only a kind of tough crispy pork rind remains.

iTQi – based in Brussels, is a world leading organization dedicated to testing and promoting superior food and drinks. The awards are based on 60 chefs and 60 sommeliers blind testing around 1,300 food products.

Companies will be able to use the “Superior Taste Award” as a marketing tool for the next 3 years.
