Kada neće brdo Čučkovićima....

By: GastroLada
December 28, 2013
Poznata je već u virtualnom svijetu društvenih mreža ta urbana legenda o braći Čučković. Nisu oni nikakvi nogometaši, modni dizajneri, vjerski fanatici ili reketari koji najlakše stječu internetsku slavu u Hrvata. O običnoj dvojici mesara se radi. Čime je jedno, reklo bi se, neglamuroz...

Sunčane livade - dom sretnih krava

By: GastroLada
October 11, 2016
Iako naziv tvrtke zvuči kao ime staračkog doma zavučenoga negdje dovoljno daleko u zapećku Hrvatske da dotične starce ne morate posjećivati češće od dvaput godišnje, ostavite se zlokobnih misli. Sunčane livade sretno su mjesto, koliko može sretna biti farma za tov junadi. Međutim, autorica ov...

Vis: Put It On Your Bucket List! Part 1

By: GastroLada
June 09, 2013
Vis Island is an incredible place. I somehow knew that even before I set foot on it. If you asked me why I thought so, I wouldn't know the answer, but my expectations came true the first time I met the island and the people. That was in 2011. So, I decided to come back this year, infatuate others with ...

The most hipster street in Zagreb

By: GastroLada & Gurwoman
November 19, 2014
Or as we would have said only a few years ago: the coolest street in Zagreb. But if by being a hipster you mean dogs, bikes, nice coffee places, wine bars and organic food, there you have it. Add the most acclaimed cake shop in this part of Croatia, a bookstore/coffeehouse that's been like a publ...

Prigora - Putting Prigorje on Wine Map

By: Gurwoman
February 16, 2015
We love witnessing new beginnings, especially when it comes to wineries. And when the story is set in a tiny region not particularly known for its wine tradition, we can't be happier. Stretching somewhere between the southern slopes of Medvednica and Sava River, Prigorje is a small rural region, natura...

Ice Wine Adventure in Zagorje

By: GastroLada
February 25, 2012
You know the rules: the temperature must be under -7 °C for a few days in a row, so the grape berries are frozen when you're picking and pressing them. The picking is done during the nights, since the temperatures drop and then stay low during the nighttime. It's a risky business, but the ...

Time is relative on the island of Vis. Not just for the islanders. You quickly become drawn into that subtle trap of "not giving a damn" about the plans you made, the time of the day or month it is, or even coming home at any point. Who knows, you might even find "paradise lost"; the ...

Growing up near the Mississippi River - or any other clouded, brackish body of water - can give one a dismal view of eating freshwater fish. Generally speaking, it's unspoken law that the best thing you can do for the meal is to hide the true flavor of a fish that has spent its life wallowing in silt a...
