Where to eat the best falafel in Sarajevo?

The main ingredient of the Israeli falafel are fava beans or chickpeas. Falafel is invented by the Egyptian Bedouins. It is easy to prepare and it is served with tahini sauce. Falafel is a great option no matter whether you are vegetarian or not, because it is abundant with fibers, proteins and folic acid. You can prepare it yourself, but from the several I tried in Sarajevo, by far the best one is in Bon Appétit restaurant. I remind you that the goal of gastronomic stories is to be “undercover”, so photos are from the cell phone. The main...

Tastes of Portugal

When I was in Portugal for the first time, we had quite a lot of time, as tourists do to discover all the great places, for eating of course. This year when I came back to Portugal, I knew exactly where and what I want to eat. Also, I could share with my fellow travellers the tried-and-true impression of something  and whether it is really as claimed on Trip Advisor. And believe me, I enjoyed a return visit to Portugal. As a travel guide, I guided my friends and talked about everything I knew. But given that my company...

In season: July

I am off to summer holiday in July. But the real holiday: absorbing the sun, enjoying fresh food and taking just as enough steps from my sun bed to the sea. This certainly does not mean that we will not know what is in season this month. Surely, I hope you follow Chakula on Instagram, where photos of “first food encounters” are often found. In July there are fresh: raspberries, blueberries, cucumbers and radishes. Last year, quite by chance, from a lady from Breza I ordered some divine raspberries. This year I remembered her again and I look forward...

Strawberry or raspberry jam

When I saw that my dear Ena made jam, I had to ask her to share the recipe with you. I do not think there is anything better than a home-made fruit jam from fruit that you choose yourself and then you have a lovely sweet jam for the whole winter to go with pancakes. You can still find strawberries on the market, and raspberries are the stars in July. Certainly that you can make a jam from plums or even cherries that are in season in June. Preparation time: 60 minutes Ingredients: – 3 kg of strawberries or raspberries...
