Flavors of Slovenia

  • Tucked between the foothills of the Alps, the coast of the Adriatic Sea, and the beginning of the Panonian plains to the East, Slovenia is a beautiful land in Central Europe. Slovenia emerged fairly recently with a resilient culture and rich arts scene that has caused tourism to flourish. In Flavors of Slovenia, Hippocrene presents perhaps the only comprehensive guide to the country's cuisine.

    Ranging from such perennial favorites as Friko (hearty Potato Pancake), zlinkrofi (Meat Dumplings), Bakala (Dried Salt Cod Pate) and Kostanjeva Juha (Chestnut Soup) to more unusual preparations like Crni Rizoto (Black Risotto with Squid, ink included) and Mezerli (Baked Encrusted Pig or Veal Lung-a version of Haggis), Slovenian fare is both hearty and wholesome. Tales such legendary locals as the `sunshine salesman' and a Slovenian Robin Hood along with ghosts and fairytale castles also bring the culture alive in this unique volume.
