Dish of the Month


Tripe, in Croatian tripice, škembići or fileki, is a traditional dish of many countries such as Portugal, Spain, England, Italy and France all the way to Turkey and China. It can be prepared in various ways and there are numerous distinct recipes; in Spain and Portugal they prepare tripe with mushrooms, and in France and Italy with wine or tomato sauce. In Croatia, however, the preparation of tripe might be slightly different. Due to historical factors, German, Italian and Turkish (Ottoman) cuisine have left deep traces on our gastronomy, so our tripe dishes were being invented under the same influences. You can make tripe soups, tripe goulash and stuffed tripe. There are also tripe risottos made of anglerfish and even tuna entrails.
