If you browse the internet for traditional Croatian delicacies, chances are you will stumble upon a term called peka. It is a large iron item which covers the dish close to an open fire, and covered with hot ash, provides a special type of thermal food processing. The aromas are heightened and unique, whether you roast octopus or ecologically farmed veal under peka’s hard shell.

The magical aromas of this specialty has been experienced by Shawn and Tricia Mitchell in romantic town of Trogir. The pair of passionate travelers also tried a bottle of Babich wine.
