Best of 2014
January, the start of a new year is well known for a time of reflection and the old cliché ‘new year, new me’ that goes hand in hand with optimistic, yet sometimes, unrealistic resolutions. Like for example, win the lottery and buy a yacht is probably not the ‘self improving’ resolution that is this tradition is aimed at. But leaving that aside and getting back to the point, reflecting over 2014 it seems we have had quite the year. So we thought we would look back through the archives and pick a few highlights to share with you…
2014 brought the launch of our website and online shop, took a while to get it just right but we are really pleased with it now, so you can order your favorite products and we will ship them direct to your door! Its great to see our regular customers taking advantage when they can’t pop down to Borough Market or international customers not having to worry about truffle oils exploding in their suitcase.
Its always a pleasure when our producers from Croatia visit London to spend some time in our shop and with the customers
Mr Galovic (nicknamed The King of Kulin), our amazing charcuterie producer in tradtional Croatian clothing as awell might I add
The great singing chocolatier, Marinko Biskic, whose dark chocolate spread sells out almost immediately every time
Adrian Chiles (who is half Croatian) popped in to do some shopping – knew I always liked him
Over the year we have catered numerous events with carefully crafted menus. Our most recent was hosted at the Queens Club for the Dubrovnik Tourist Board
Our days at Borough Market are always made that much more interesting by our regular customers or new friendly faces that visit our shop and stop for a chat
Also 2014 brought the exciting launch of our food and wine holidays carefully talior made to enable travellers to experience the real Croatia! Not only is Croatia one of the most beautiful countries, it is also one of Europe’s newest and most exciting food and wine destinations. Simply full of vinous and culinary delights with breathtaking views of sun soaked vinogorje (wine hills) which – to this Londoner – is so beautiful.
With the mince pies and brandy now a distant memory, it’s time to make plans for the year ahead. So what will 2015 have in store?
