The food of Bosnia and Herzegovina has been shaped by myriad influences. Traditionally a mix of Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisines, Austria's rule over this region during the late 1800s and early 1900s added a decidedly central European flavour to the mix.
Meat and dairy are diet essentials, with fruit and vegetables dependant on seasons. Burek is a classic example of Bosnian-Herzegovinian cuisine. Made with pita, a soft pastry suited to both sweet and savoury accompaniments, our meaty dish is filled with veal, beef and a hint of paprika.
