Salt-Crusted Sea Bass

I remember when I started with Chakula, one of the first suggestions was to have some recipe for fish. Well, it took almost a year, but it is here! And it was worth it to wait for it. My friend Miha from Ljubljana is a gourmet eater, chef and food lover. He is behind...

Lemon or Cinnamon Rolls

Since the winter began, I have been planning to make this popular and delicious dessert, but somehow it would always slip through. It seems that a real snow day was all the inspiration I needed. The lemon curd I made for another cake, but it goes so well in this...

This month #letseat: parsnips

With the new year, it's time for novelties on Chakula.ba. Every month I choose a grocery that is in season, and which is not particularly popular, known or common in our kitchen. The goal is to find out more about the groceries we can buy in the season,...

Venison Night 3, Restaurant Lovac, Sarajevo

Sarajevo is my hometown. Although I have lived abroad and I travel very often, there is no city for me that is more beautiful than Sarajevo. Recently, when I came back, I realized that we are not aware at all of how great Sarajevo is and how...

Holiday cookies

Somehow winter and holidays are for food and cakes. Holidays are for joy, family and togetherness. In any case, I believe that you will or you already are in the process of preparing delicious small cookies that will delight the palates of your friends and family....

Chakula Vanilla Custard Coffee Slice

This cake is all but a classic custard slice. But because of the puff pastry and custard creme, it reminded me of its traditional version. Certainly, the winning combination is when modern and traditional go well together. And this is just such a simple and quick...

In season: December

Are you already in the holiday mood? In December, we usually relax and all foods, and especially cakes, are especially appealing to us. But believe it or not in the season in December there are some very healthy foods. In December, seasonal foods are:...

Jet lag smoothie

Lately, I've been spending a lot of time at airports and hotels. On my return from the States, I slept for 15 hours. When I woke up I was very hungry, but at the same time I could not eat anything "difficult". I went to the Healthy Boutique in the neighborhood and...

Pomegranate inside

Since pomegranate is in season, I bought it the other day. I was thinking how else can I use it. Opening the kitchen cabinet I saw these molds, which I almost forgot. I began to add the ingredients in the bowl and in no time I got these delicious snacks, with a...

In season: November

What do you think will winter be full of snow? I somehow hope it will not. But if it does, we couldn't care less, there will be more time for cooking and socializing in the home environment. In November, seasonal foods are: cabbage, chestnuts, cranberries...

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.
