A lunch in olive grove near Medulin

Last weekend, after the olive harvest, we had a lunch in my grandmother’s olive grove near Medulin. This post is my attempt to transmit you the gastronomic enjoyments we had that afternoon. We were hungry like the wolf so everything tasted even better.

Please, do not be shocked by the number of courses you will see in the next photos. My family just likes to enjoy good food, but not in enormous quantities. In fact, nobody is obese among us 🙂 You will understand why I am sometimes so nasty with the restaurant I review. I am simply used to eat very good at home.

Enjoy the photos, and please do ask for recipe if you find a dish you would like to try at home.
