Off the beaten paths

If you want a real Croatian food experience book Darko for a food and/or wine tour. We have been on a lot of food and wine tours and this was the best yet in large part due to Darko's connections with food purveyors around Dubrovnik. We hit the wineries at perfect times and avoided the big crowds. Darko took us on his cousins oyster boat which provides seafood to Dubrovnik area restaurants and ate seafood straight from the Adriatic alongside homemade cheeses, grapes, wine and grappa. It was an amazing day
