Eat like a local

Imagine yourself on the mountain slopes where heart villagers collect skorup, a deliciously creamy treat, and let it slowly curdle to make cheese, or by the fireplace in the house where villagers carefully prepare raštan (greens) or pogača iz crepulje, a special bread cooked in the ashes of the fire. As you read this, can you begin to sniff the aromas coming from our grandmothers’ kitchens? Come and enjoy all of Montenegro's aromas and flavors!

Facts:

Nature's wealth: 

  • Montenegro's ecosystems provide ideal conditions for the breeding of high-quality goat, lamb, veal, and river/lake fish (bleak, carp, trout, eel and others).
  • The Zeta plain has red soil, which is ideal for growing fruits and vegetables. Vine cultivation is successful in this area, as evidenced by Europe's largest "one-piece" vineyard, located in Ćemovsko Field.

On Skadar Lake, how do you prepare smoked dried carp?

Allow the cleaned carp to marinate in salt for 24h. Wash the carp the next day to remove larger grains of sea salt. After that, smoke it for another 24h. Preferably, use a light wild pomegranate wood or willow wood for the fire under the carp to achieve a reddish meat color and tantalizing aroma. Smoked carp is cooked in fresh water with laurel leaf and pepper, then topped with a special marinade before serving.
