Konoba

in photography •  3 months ago

Last night our landlord surprised us with a traditional Dalmatian dinner prepared in konoba.

Konoba is a place where local people keep tools and supplies and store wine and also prepare food while working on the field.

Today the custom serves to entertain tourists like me. Although we have a similar tradition in Slovenia it was a nice experience which also brings some good memories on the surface.

First, the master starts the fire.

Meat is at the bottom of the pot beneath the potatoes.

We put the metal lid over the dish.

It looks more like a museum.

Then we cover the lid with the embers.

After a half of an hour, we lifted the lid and dig the meat out the potatoes and put it on top.

Then we put the lid and embers back and cook for another half of an hour.

The table was ready.

Here is the final product.

Chicken, pork and veal with potatoes and carrots.

They served them with the salad of tomatoes and bell peppers and watermelon for dessert.

There is just one word to describe this:

DELICIOUS!

Buon appetite.

And cheers or Na zdravje in Croatian.

Keep grinding, my friends.

I love this awesome place and would love to enjoy this delicious meal there. I'm Polish, so I love, love potatoes especially cooked on the fire.
In Polish, we say, Na Zdrowie, which is pretty close to Croatian. Cool.

That looked fantastic and made me want to go camping (not RV style) and cook on the fire!

That ready made food looking yummy! Really feel like join the table with you if possible hehehe.... That pot used for cooking those looking good dish look like a traditional pot which we usually made from clay, we call it ikoko, when we use this pot for cooking of any kind, very fast and after some minutes when we done cooking, you can't believe the soup will still be like still on fire, after 15-20 before it will started cooling.... Love those oldie design on the wall... Good you have awesome experience during tour.

I love the dalmatian food - nearly everything - and this one looks delicious, kind of a dry stew? We spend our holidays somewhere in dalmatia every year.
