On the menu of traditional Balkan recipes, you will find a lot of meat – cooked, marinated in sauce, barbecued… It took a lot of effort to adapt traditional recipes with vegetarian alternatives – but most of all, to allow us to enjoy the Balkan food, where cooking skills are perfectly combined with good, locally grown products!
“What’s good to see in Albania?” we asked one of our former hosts in Turin (Italy), whose family is originally from Albania… “Lots of things! Beaches, mountains, castles, the World Heritage cities of Berat and Gjirokaster, and the Blue Eye…” Blue Eye? What could that be? We looked on Internet, in search for the answer and found some amazing pictures… It’s decided, we are going to visit the Blue Eye!
Are you in love with good vegetarian dishes? That’s a good thing, because during our stay in northern Italy, we learned traditional Italian recipes from our hosts… Recipes handed down from generation to generation, thanks to the know-how of the Mamma, which we have enjoyed to the point of sharing them, with pleasure and greediness. Buon appetito!
