Lyz, my friend, trend was opposite, too. The cuisine of number of Muslim countries that made for Ottoman Empire was and is influenced by cuisine of Balkan Slavs that were occupied. But just have in mind, for the sake of historical truth, that what you mentioned as `Montenegro, Croatia, and Bosnia` at the moment when Turks invaded all were just Serbian lands. Only 15-25% of what is now Croatia back in that time was Croatia, ethnic Croatia being even less then that. Only Bulgarians and Serbs were constituted ethoses at that time, here in the region. Those that you mentioned are result of Turkish invasion on Serbs in addition of Germanic influence and competition between Islam, Catholicism and Orthodoxy. Albania itself back in time didn`t exist. Back then they were just Shquiptar wild tribes that were by Eastern Romans, in early middle ages, taken from Anatolia and introduced to the region of what is now Albania.
Crow is talking more sense than you will find in the Daily Mail.
yes? Well, I`m here just to share info.
Isn't it your national dish, Crowie? I've tried others in Croatia, but it just wasn't as good as that one. I also had a decent one in Valjevo.
Not that Croats aren`t Serbs, some still, some in the past and not that they don`t know recipe but, simple, pljeskavica and cevapcici originate from the regions around Drina river, between what is now Bosnia-Herzegovina and Serbia. See, people says that best pljeskavica and cevapcici you can found in Leskovac (Serbia), in Novi Sad (Serbia), in Banja Luka (Serb Republic- BH), Sarajevo (BH) and in Trebinje (BH).
