This book helps you explore the authentic taste of an undiscovered cuisine in over 60 traditional dishes. It is a celebration of this little-known cuisine, with 60 recipes shown in over 300 photographs. It features a fascinating introduction to the geography and climate, history, culture, eating customs and traditions of Slovenia. It introduces the classic ingredients of the cuisine, from mountain berries to sauerkraut and smoked sausages. It includes a selection of regional dishes, ranging from light and wholesome vegetable soups to filling one-pot meals and dumplings: try hearty traditional Bean and Sauerkraut Hotpot, or the celebrated multi-layered Prekmurje Gibanica Pie. It is exquisitely photographed, with easy-to-follow techniques and clear instructions. Slovenia is a small country with dramatic contrasts - from an alpine climate in the north, through the wine-producing hills of Stajerska, to the sub-Mediterranean region in the south. These geographical features lend varied regional emphasis to the cuisine, which is characterized by simple country fare, often enhanced by the dishes of the surrounding countries - Italy, Austria, Hungary and Croatia. The many tempting recipes in this book include the nutritious and tasty Chicken Noodle Soup, the peppery spices of Millet-Stuffed Turnips, and Poppy Potica, a traditional sweet bread. The dishes tend to incorporate generous amounts of carbohydrate and fat to support the peasant diet, but have been adapted to suit a modern, healthy lifestyle, while staying true to the sustaining and wholesome fare of the country.
