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 a very popular Instagram account Luda kucha. It is there I see him cooking all kind of delicacies, including this recipe.

New Year seems to be ideal with enriching our diet, right? In January parsnips is in season. In the period of the Roman Empire, parsnips or...

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 little it takes to be an ideal city for life. However, that little it takes to perfection is exactly what we most dislike in living in Sarajevo. The gastronomic scene is quite part of this “little” that is missing. Although there are many restaurants, it’s all very similar. Last month I had...
