Croatian culture centres on food. Mouth-watering dishes... sitting around the table with friends and family... sharing meals with love and laughter... this is what Croatia is about.
As many guests and travellers have complained of the difficulty of finding authentic souvenirs, I decided to start growing my own herbs, fruits and plants to make seasonings that would remind visitors of the great memories they have made in Croatia.
I have been fortunate enough to learn from local women the many plants and herbs that are available in nearby forests, mountains and the seaside.
It was only natural to make my own blends of seasonings, preserves and body products to use personally when I could not find them in the store.
Many friends and guests started to request more and more of my homemade produce commenting on how the flavours, aromas and feel reminded them of their holiday and great memories of Croatia. And thus, Mikki´s Croatian Kitchen was created.
Using local flavours and seasonings, we've put together a variety of spices and sugar blends to help bring home the tastes of Croatia. We still have Australian roots so had to spice up a few of our seasonings for that extra kick.
Since all of our food seasonings and infused sugars have ingredients from our garden, our products may run seasonally and will change from time to time depending on our harvest.
The 3-pack essential, homegrown, organic Croatian spice package.
Bringing the tastes of Croatia with a twist home to your kitchen.
Croatian meals usually centre around a roast of some sort - beef, lamb, pork, octopus. A slow-roasted meal combined with some potatoes, onions, and carrots and topped off with our Meat Rub means you'll have the Adriatic in your kitchen as well! Capture the taste of the Adriatic with our go-to mix for Peka, BBQ or your oven, so simple and all the flavours you need! Ingredients - Adriatic salt, carob, garlic, lemon, rosemary, wild sage, ground lavender flower, parsley
While chilli isn't a traditional spice used in Croatian meals, it is the main ingredient in Mikki's Croatian Kitchen. This flavoursome combination has just the right amount of spice to waken your taste buds but remains mild enough for those venturing into chilli.
Use it as a seasoning salt to enhance chicken and turkey, but works just as well for vegan and vegetarian dishes or even added to hummus. Ingredients - Adriatic salt, lemon, parsley stalks, charcoal, sea fennel, rosemary, capsicum, hot peppers, chilli
There tends to be a standard vegetable seasoning in all Croatian kitchens, but Mikki's Vegetable Booster comes without the preservatives, MSG, and chemically-produced flavours. All of the ingredients are sourced from her garden without the use of pesticides and are then dehydrated and mixed by hand.
Every batch may be unique as it will depend on the current harvest. It is excellent in soups, added to rice, meat, you name it! Ingredients - Tomato, sea fennel, capsicum, aubergine, zucchini, cucumber, garlic, beans, cabbage
