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.
