October 30, 2018 – Sweet Korčula, an island with a seemingly endless supply of fabulous traditional home-made cakes and desserts. We are very grateful to Franica Tasovac for allowing us to serialise her excellent books called Sweet Korcula, Sweeties of Korcula Grannies (in English). It is a collection of no less than 30 ancient recipes for Korcula cakes and desserts, lovingly put together into a book. A delightful souvenir or gift for gourmet friends. Franica has kindly allowed us to serialise the recipes on TCN, and we will be bringing you a recipe a week from the kitchens of Korcula’s grandmothers throughout the year. You can read Claudia Tarle’s lovely introduction here.


2 eggs 
100 g sugar 
1 tablespoon maraschino
100 g of dark chocolate
150 g of almonds (chopped)
100 g of walnuts (chopped)
50 g of dried figs (chopped)

Mix eggs, sugar and maraschino in a bowl. Put to cook on low heat. Stir until the sugar dissolves. Add the chocolate broken in pieces and continue to stir until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is slightly condensed. Add almonds, walnuts and dried figs.

Sprinkle the foil with sugar and put over it cooked mixture. Roll the mixture using clear foil so you form a “sausage”.

When cooled cut into the thin slices.
