We are delighted to be hosting Author Helena Nuić for an evening in our kitchen so she can share her story and to celebrate the launch of her brand new book - My Croatian Kitchen. Join us on Monday 10 May for an evening of Food & Stories......

Helena has always been drawn to the land of her family left behind for NZ, the small Croatian fishing village of Sucaraj. Several years ago she began a project to document her family recipe collection, and this in turn has become My Croatian Kitchen, a delightful, rustic cookbook full of gorgeous recipes - Makurune, Torta, Apple Shortcake, Blitva, Croatian Louise Cake, Soups....

It began with an old family recipe book, the fading ink holding onto history. The pages filled with recipes that have travelled from one side of the world to the other in an effort to hold onto home. 

My Croatian Kitchen is a collection of recipes that have been passed down through generations, an immigrant’s tale sharing the connection to heritage through food.

The recipes in this book speak to the intertwined and inescapable relationship with food in a Croatian household. Food is at the heart of the home, centered around family, friends and connections.
Ingredients are simple but lovingly transformed through a love of food and its preparation, passed down from one generation to the next.
My Croatian Kitchen allows for not only the creation of authentically delicious food but an appreciation of the memories, nostalgia and pride that accompanies every recipe in this special book.
