The cake of our captains - the islands of Cres and Lošinj
The nature enriched poor soil and island karst with almonds, figs, lemons, oranges and olives, plants that, with the help of hard working people, make healing honey and premium quality olive oil which is a natural preservative and enables the longer storage of desserts.
In the honour of our captains we give You a more endurable dessert which you can serve with wine and dip in wine, just like the captains used to do it.
