Black Risotto_ Learn to make a traditional Croatian cuttlefish risotto

29 August, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Up early in the morning to beat the crowds on the trams, and make my way to the food cornucopia of “Dolac”, in the center of Zagreb. I’m off to buy the cuttlefish for our risotto. Black risotto is of course a Dalmatian dish, but in Zagreb we get some of the best seafood delivered to the market every day

Creamy, decadent rice with white wine and slow poached cuttlefish that melts on the tongue like holy communion, now thats the business right there. This is usually served as a starter in Dalmatia, but a nice big portion accompanied with some tossed salad, and a good slice of sourdough, makes one great lunch or dinner. All you need with that is the sea breeze, and a good glass of Croatian wine, like Plavac.

Learn all this tips and tricks, from choosing your fish at the market, to cleaning and preparing it. Whats the best rice? What type of wine? We have you covered with this 2 hour cooking class
