February 7, 2019 – Sweet Korcula, 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


3 eggs
pinch of salt
120 g sugar
1 teaspoon anise
1 tablespoon grape brandy
150 g flour

Heat the oven to 175°C.
Beat anise in a mortar, or chop it and pour with brandy.

Mix egg whites into firm snow. Blend yolks, sugar and salt into a foamy mixture.
