Ancient dried fig cake, typical for the island of Vis (viški hib), but spread all over the Croatian south. Prepared with dried figs, almonds, a bit of homemade brandy and maybe some herbs. It can last for months, preserved in laurel and rosemary, to keep the unwanted insects away and give it a nice aroma.
