Flora has the right Dalmatian recipes for Croatia’s EU membership 

A new cookbook is being published in the UK to coincide with Croatia joining the EU. The Sweet Taste of a Dalmatian Love Affair, Croatian Family Recipes, is a collection of recipes from the handwritten cookbook of Flora Boglić¸ a Croatian girl living in Dalmatia in the early 20th century. 

The book’s author Flora Turner-Vučetić is her granddaughter and the former Cultural Counselor at the Croatian Embassy in London. The book will be published as part of the Welcome Croatia Festival, which is celebrating Croatia’s EU membership, which starts on the 1st of July 2013

'The way to a man's heart is...'

The inspiration for the book is the original hand written cookbook of grandmother Flora and the love letters that her future husband Viktor wrote to her between 1903 and 1909. He wrote these letters as part of their long courtship and often in thanks of the food, which Flora had sent to him. Viktor’s grateful appreciation of the offerings sent to him reflects the love with which they were prepared.
