Example text

Add the beef, stir well to coat and set aside for 30 minutes. Heat the remaining water in a wok until boiling. Add ½ teaspoon of salt and the baby corn and cook for 30 seconds. Add the mushrooms, snow peas and squash and cook for a further 30 seconds. Drain the blanched vegetables in a colander. Heat the deep-frying oil in the wok until the surface is shimmering. Add the beef and fry until it just changes colour. Strain out the beef and empty the wok of oil, leaving 1 tablespoon. Reheat the wok over a high flame and add the garlic, capsicum and beef.

When the onion has reduced add the olive oil, niter kibbeh and berbere and stir well. Add the chicken. Bring the mixture to the boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer. Stir the spices into the stew and add extra salt if needed. Simmer until the chicken is cooked through, making sure the onion does not stick to the bottom of the pot. Spoon out some of the excess oil that settles on top. Cut vertical grooves into the hard-boiled eggs to ensure the flavour seeps in. When the stew is cooked, add the eggs and turn off the heat.

It’s no wonder the food is good when you see where Croatia lies on a map – right in the centre of Europe and spread along the beautiful Dalmatian Coast. Dotted near the coast are many islands, where the food is heavily influenced by the Mediterranean and dishes like risotto and polenta have been adapted to suit Croatian palates. For instance an Italian-inspired seafood stew called a brodet is traditionally served over soft polenta; and a rich, black risotto is made using squid ink. Almost every Croatian we met who had grown up by the sea told us they started fishing almost before they could walk, which is impressive.
