Slovenian Appetizers: Lightly Fried and Delicious

Heike continues taking us on a tour of the culinary gems of Slovenia, with an introduction to three Slovenian appetizers. The recipes for each of these dishes looked so delicious that we decided it would a travesty to put them all together in just one posting and will, instead, be posting one a day for the next three days.

Here's Heike's introduction to Slovenian appetizers:

In Slovenia and other parts of Central Europe, fried appetizers make tasty treats. Whereas in the US where the term “fried food” has a negative connotation, in Europe, food is fried lightly in a small amount of oil with a flour or cornmeal batter. The results are delicious, and not overly heavy or filling.


All three recipes will be posted soon, we promise! If you can't wait, though, you can use the map below to refresh your knowledge of Slovenian geography, in case you want to trek to find these dishes at their source:
