Three different and quick proposals for iftar

The month of Ramadan began last week. For all of you who fast, after a busy working day, I believe that it is sometimes challenging to prepare a healthy and delicious meal for iftar, without spending hours in the kitchen. It is certainly important that...

Tastes of Asia: South Korea

For some time now, I have been announcing that Chakula's associate is wandering around Asia and that I will share some of her gastronomic experiences. The first one is from Seoul and Jeju Island in South Korea. I believe that these photos and...

Mille feuille

You know about those cakes that are so photogenic, so you think: this is surely too complicated to make. And in fact it is not at all. Well, this is just such a cake. If you have guests coming, mille feuille or a thousand leaves is a cake that you make in 30 minutes...

Pão de quejo

Every month I'm really looking forward to the Guest Chef Recipe section. I believe that every day we follow a lot of bloggers, so when I choose a recipe I enjoy preparing it and certainly sharing my impressions. Andrea recently celebrated 10 years of her blog Cukar....

In season: May

End of April and the beginning of May honored us with beautiful sunny days. Everything kind of gets better and easier when the weather is warmer and when the days are longer. Nature is awakening and as I've seen on Instagram many of you have already...

Lemon bars

My love for lemon is I believe now far-known. As many make and eat all made from chocolate, so I do with lemon. Lemon curd, i.e. lemon cream is quite challenging to make, but in this recipe I've simplified it so it cannot fail you. These bars are very refreshing and...

The healthiest salads

Since childhood we are taught that every salad is healthy and that we should digest as much greenery in our body as possible. And that's all true. At the same time, this does not mean that in a restaurant if we order a salad with a dressing on the basis of...

Arduana’s Bundt Cake

Last month I started with a new section: Guest Chef Recipe. Ena's Choco pralines were just the right bombastic announcement. In the meantime, I have made the Easter Bundt Cake when a minor disaster with the mold has occurred. When I saw this bundt cake at...

Gastro review: Ferdinand dumplings, Belgrade

I know that as soon as you've seen the cover photo, you knew about what I'm going to write. We were recently in Belgrade and I shared a photo of Nutella dumpling on Instagram, which caused an overall enthusiasm. Certainly it cannot be measured...

Chocolate Tahini Bites

Have you already made or eaten tahini paste? When I made St. Patrick's Day Muffins, I used black sesame. I got left with a lot of black sesame, so I was thinking how to use it. From black sesame I made tahini paste, and then these energy bites. Easy to make, you eat...

Welcome to all food lovers, to all explorers of different cooking, to all of you who love to eat and want to find new places to enjoy food.

About me

My name is Irma and for 10 years I have been cooking for my family and friends. Two years ago I started with food photography and with exploring recipes and adapting them to my liking. During this period of two years, at least once per week I was asked why don’t I start my own web about food and cooking. Apparently I have finally ceded before presures because here you are on my own online gastro magazine.

Blog

Aside from recipes, I will try to write up gastro stories from my travels. A specific part of the magazine is the section Gastronomad(s), because I eat in restaurants frequently and I will gladly share those experiences and reviews of restaurant I visit.

About Chakula

Why chakula? Chakula in Swahili language means food. At the same time in Dalmatia and in the wider Meditteranean, ćakulati means to have a casual conversation, as we mostly do with good food we our dear people. Well that is exactly how I see this part of my online work and I hope we will have a fun times together over food.
