Taste of Croatia in Victoria, Australia

Pavarotti apparently said that one of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating.

Croatian food is delicious, and thousands of Croatians who have settled throughout the world have preserved traditional methods of curing meat, distilling brandy, pickling vegetables and preparing tasty traditional meals.

You don’t have to wait until you reach Croatia before indulging. Treat your tastebuds and your family, and visit Dalmatino in Port Melbourne (, Katarina Zrinski at the Melbourne Croatian Club in Footscray (9689 5866) or Istra Smallgoods in Musk, Central Victoria (5348 3382).

Don't miss the prosciutto, often served with tasty gherkins. Or the bean soup (grah), or the cabbage rolls (sarma), or the grilled pork cutlet and roasted belly.....

Incidentally, Pavarotti’s suits were made by the famous Croatian tailor Gena whose workshop is in Trogir on the Dalmatian coast.
