What you'll do

I love sharing the passion I have for Dalmatian(Coastal Croatian) traditional cuisine.
After we got all ingredients on Green market, we'll had to my kitchen and terrace in heart of Split.
Try to introduce to you its specific taste based on a simple blend ingredients, without additives and other nasty poisons.
Almost like a game we will harmonise flavours, aromas and textures in Buzara, Sea food pates, Prosciutto cooked in wine, dried figs in Prosek(traditional liquor)...
I ll show you how to balance, sometime improvise, going overboard in traditional Dalmatian (Croatian) cuisine.
You will also try home made Rakija(wellcome drink), wine, home made liquors (walnuts, carobs).
So we will cook, eat , drink... a step away from every days life.
Cooking is process that changes minute by minute, also raises level of oxytocin, the love hormone.
How we can resist it?
After the class you ll receive your binder with recipes, and goodby present.

To me , cooking represents a trip into a world of imagination, journey to another dimension where time does not exist.
So I like to say "Life is uncertain, eat dessert before".
For travellers who have an appetite not only for food but for life too.
I would like to introduce you to Dalmatian cuisine and share my passion for it.
Every occasional gathering in my home ends up with lots of home food and yummy creations.
For a years I m writing Food and travel blog.
Enjoy in every minute of writing about Cooking, recipes and cooking by itself.

Tanja is incredible! I booked this experience for my husband's birthday, and we had the best time! Tanja was very knowledgeable about Dalmatian food (and has even written a beautiful cookbook in English!), and was also very knowledgeable about the fish market and the green market that we went to before heading to her house, as well as the city in general, and it was really fun learning new things about each from her. The food itself was so fun to make, so tasty, and perfectly local and seasonal. I wish we would have done it earlier in our stay here because Tanja became a fast friend. We even have plans to meet up again soon before we leave Split :) I highly, highly recommend this experience to anyone who loves to experience local culture, eat yummy food, and make new friends!

We arrived in Split on Wind Surf but brother got ill & sent to hospital. My only respite from the lengthy situation was the experience with Tanya. She helped me to unwind from stress by teaching me some of her terrific recipes and then enjoyed all the flavorful food together. Conversation was so easy..like we had always been friends. I know going forward we shall truly be friends

Cooking with Tanja is like catching up with a friend that you haven’t seen in years. Tanja is such a vibrant lovely person and cooking with her was truly a joy. She started this experience to properly represent Dalmatian cuisine as many people hold misconceptions about what is Dalmatian food. Come hungry because you will eat and eat and eat! I can’t believe I found this experience through Airbnb because it was truly priceless.

Wow! This is hands down one of the best travel experiences we’ve ever had and we travel for a living so that’s saying a lot! Tanja is generous, hilarious, kind, the patio is gorgeous and the food we prepared was great!! I could not say enough about it. She made our entire trip to Croatia worthwhile with her storytelling and good company. We will definitely be booking again and telling everyone we know about it. Thank you, Tanja!

This experience was amazing!! We were made to feel so welcome and really enjoyed all the cooking & learning. The food we cooked tasted great all fresh ingredients! It felt like having dinner round a good friends house, the terrace is very cosy and enjoyable. Recommend this experience to anyone! A great way to experience Croatian cooking in an authentic way. Thank you!

Tanja is not only an excellent chef but also a great host. We had a terrific time with her during which we enjoyed delicious food and learnt a lot about Croatian cuisine and culture. It was a fun and entertaining evening. I highly recommend this experience in Split.
