10 Kitchen Essentials

No matter if you are equipping your first kitchen, starting to cook more or you simply want to upgrade your kitchenware – this is a text for all of us. I say all of use, because from every trip I come back with some new kitchenware, which I simply “must have”. In this text I won’t write to you about everything I have in my own kitchen, because that wouldn’t fit in three texts and let’s face it: you don’t need all of that. I am writing about the basic kitchenware which will make your cooking and preparing food easier...

Pistachio Brownie Cake

Every Monday goes by quick with a piece of cake, don’t you agree? Each February 26 is National Pistachio Day. When pistachio are merged with a brownie base, that’s what I call a bombastic combination.

Gastro review: Dunja Sarajevo

It is almost a public secret in Sarajevo, that restaurant “Dunja” is a place where you go with your friends to listen to some live music and hang out with a round of drinks. Before you go there, one eats at home or in the restaurant across the street, because we have all burnt our tongues on the tasteless food in “Dunja”. Sarajevo is a small city, where guests of restaurants are more or less frequent visitors, so they exchange views on where did they eat well and where not so well. Thus, the very restaurant owner will often...
