Dalmatian cuisine, due to its ingredients and preparation, meets all medical and nutritional recommendations for a healthy and well-balanced diet. Traditional Dalmatian ingredients are various types of fish, shells, crabs, octopus, squid, cuttle-fish, olives, olive oil, vegetables, wild and aromatic herbs, almonds, figs, grapes, honey, raisins and citrus fruits. Particularly delicious are Dalmatian "prsut" - smoked ham that is dried in the "bura" (north-eastern wind), best served with sheep-cheese, and "janjetina ispod peke" - lamb prepared in the traditional way under a metal cover. Furthermore, Dalmatian wines, both red and white, are a must with every meal and some of them are among the world's top ten. The cuisine in Dalmatia and on its islands is in accordance to modern trends in nutrition. Healthy methods of preparation (boiled or grilled), as well as plenty of fish, olive oil, vegetables and wild herbs that can be found along the coast make Dalmatian cuisine extremely healthy. Although, even today, every region has its own unique methods of preparation, Dalmatian cuisine represents a unit whose characteristics have been discovered only recently, for example the cuisines of the islands of Hvar, Korcula, Brac (vitalac, a dish prepared with lamb innards and grilled), Vis (grilled pilchards, as in the times of the ancient Greeks; pie with pilchards from Komiza and Vis, a dish similar to the modern pizza).
Croatia can boast of having a wide selection of excellent wines (there are an astounding 700 different types of wine with protected geographical origin), brandies, fruit juices, beer and mineral waters. In the south, people drink “bevanda” (red wine of rich flavor mixed with water) with their meals, while in the northwest, people drink “gemist” (dry, aromatic wines mixed with mineral water) with their meals. Dalmatian wines, as well as olive oil and olives, have been cherished since ancient times. Names of wines such as Grk from the island of Korcula and Parc from the island of Hvar bear witness to this. Famous wines include Dingac and Posip from Peljesac Peninsula; Babic from Primosten; Vugava and Plancic from the island of Hvar… as well as Posip and Grk from the island of Korcula; Marastina from the island of Lastovo; Malvazija from Dubrovnik, and so on. Furthermore, there is Prosecco (a sweet desert wine), very strong grape brandy, herb flavored brandies and liqueurs (Maraschino, Vlahov).
