The fickle atmosphere of a transit area made people here very much attached to an almost ritual way of doing things, with food as with everything else. Many of the region’s celebrations, like the carnival or religious feasts, date back to the ancient times and your characterful host Domagoj Nikolić will explain these better than anyone else.
A proud native and a bit of a Dalmatian alchemist himself, Domagoj is an articulate history connoisseur, lover of myths and traditions. Together with his wife Sanja, he will make your cooking class resemble a thought-provoking journey of the region’s culinary traditions. Presenting traditional specialties like offal, cheese, or the tasty rafijoli (walnut stuffed dough cookies), Domagoj can hardly resist adding a personal take on the Oriental delicacies, resulting in specialties like tufahije (typically boiled apples stuffed with walnut filling) prepared with pears and almonds.
