 "These are some of my favourite dishes and I am proud to share them with the rest of the world!"

~Goran Visnjic, a Croatian born actor who stars as Dr. Luka Kovac on NBC's ER television series.

"Izvanredna zbirka tradicionalni hrvatski recepata. Osobito izdvajam moje omiljene morske specijalitete kao što su crni rizoto, salata od hobotnice i mušule na buzaru."

~Vlado Kalember, popular Croatian singer

A great book not only for those who wish to rediscover their roots,but for those who want to try new dishes from various parts of Croatia. The easy instructions will help novice cooks, even guys like me who don't have a lot of experience in the kitchen, but enjoy good food will be motivated by the tantilizing array of recipes! Buy the book and help Warchild at the same time!

~Mladen Pavicic, former member of "Plavi Orkestar" a very popular

band from Sarajevo
