Croatian cuisine is remarkably diverse, reflecting the variety of cultures that have left their mark on the country, and in the kitchen, over the centuries. The Italians, for example, imparted their knowledge of pasta, while the ancient Greeks taught the people of Dalmatia and Istria to make wine. Turkish influences can be found in the Croatian kitchen as well.
The most important thing for Croatian people is fresh prepared food.
