"a great reference for any kitchen!" * Cookbook Review *
"Thank you Barbara for a cookbook that is easy for busy people to use and inspires cooking with fresh seasonal and local food. The Adriatic Kitchen won't end up at the back of a cupboard or draw - my copy will take pride of place on my bench top, and will be used often. I highly recommend you get a copy for your bench top too" -- Kirsty O'Callaghan * Book Review - The Adriatic Kitchen *
"a gastronomic journey to sun-drenched Croatia" * Cooking Books *
"They say you can't judge a book by its cover, but in this case it simply is not true. The sunny colours of this slim book, The Adriatic Kitchen, immediately conjure up visions of cliffs and sun-soaked beaches, lemons and lamb and long lazy lunches on a grapevine shaded deck." -- Sally Hammond * The Adriatic Kitchen *
"Barbara Unkovic has penned a love letter to the food of her father's homeland"
"We love the recipes themselves; heavily influenced by Italian cuisine and understatedly vibrant they rely wholly on the quality of the ingredients."
"a delightful rustic cookbook full of gorgeous recipes and evocative memories"
"... you'll find a food lovers notebook crammed full of honest food and treasured memories." -- Kelli Brett * Reviews: The Adriatic Kitchen *
