By Saron Lease 10th August, 2018
According Croatia Week, Croatian cheese producer Sirana Gligora from the island of Pag has claimed three awards at the Great Taste Awards in the UK.
Gligora’s Paski sir, Kozlar cheese aged in pressed Maraska cherry skin and Kolan aged in olive skin have all won Great Taste Awards.
Great Taste, organised by the Guild of Fine Food, has been described as the ‘Oscars’ of the food world and the ‘epicurean equivalent of the Booker prize’.
In 2018 over 500 judges from all over the world, including specially trained food writers took part in tastings from March though to early July.
The Croatian cheese market is increasing rapidly as small farms stop selling their milk to the large dairies, realising they can make higher quality, organic cheeses themselves, they now produce everything from Feta to mozzarella as well as local specialities and the place to try all these is the annual cheese festival in Svetvincenat in September , Perfect timing for the start of truffle season and the ever expanding Craft beer festivals (nearest airports Pula & Rijeka)
Also awarded this year from Croatia was Nadalina Dark Chocolate – Venezuela Porcelana 80%, Nadalina Dark Chocolate – Dark Milk Ecuador 60%, Nadalina Spread Me! – Chocolate Spread with Olive Oil, Raspberry cordial from Imanje Kapronca and Lemon Marmalade from Mandarinet.
