Did you know that the island of Krk is home to one of the most famous Croatian wine varieties – Vrbnička žlahtina? The variety is known for growing exclusively in the vineyards of Krk, and the name comes from the common Slavic adjective žlahten, which means noble. The foods that go best are sheep’s cheese, white meat, and all kinds of fish.
Krk cheese, an autochthonous Croatian product belonging to the group of hard and full-fat cheeses, is the reason for the establishment of many family farms on the island of Krk – with a lot of love and effort, success was bound to follow, so they are popular with visitors.
Šurlice – pasta, which is a popular Bodul dish – is a trademark of Krk tradition. Every family on Krk that follows the tradition passes the recipe on to the new generations, who continue the story with new and imaginative recipes that keep many tourists coming back every year.
