You will discover 7 amazing tastes most particular to Serbia. From fresh cow cheese, ajvar, kaymak, čvarci and ćevapi to fresh or preserved fruit and a surprise dessert!
Ajvar is a roasted red pepper spread. It is the author’s absolute favorite! (As evidenced in the author’s ability to eat half a jar at once.) Some call it vegetarian caviar! Ajvar can be hot/spicy or mild.
Kaymak is a dairy spread you can think of as an aged clotted cream. But taste it, don’t think it! Kaymak is made from the cream skimmed from cow milk.
Fresh soft cow cheese is a healthy delicacy, rich in proteins and low on salt, fats and carbs. We weren’t aware how unique it was in the global gastro world, until we heard it from a star chef! We adore its mild yet unmistakable taste and sleek texture.
Čvarci is a type of pork scratching, crispy bites made of cooked lard. This is the guiltiest of pleasures among our 7 unique tastes!
Ćevapi are baton-shaped grilled minced meat, mainly beef. The variances may include lamb or pork. Ćevapi are probably the top star of the all-star Serbian grilled meat palette (that includes pljeskavica, sausages, vešalica and skewers).
Slatko is a unique fruit-preserve that home cooks prepare and store in pantry as winter dessert. Our favorite is made of forest strawberries. Not easy to pick the favorite though. The fierce competition includes other berries, cherries, plums, quince and even watermelon!
