Food in our region is very diverse and greatly influenced by its neighboring countries. It is hearty and healthy, usually based around meat and vegetables, seasonal, and sourced locally. Popular dishes include turkey, lamb, or goat Pershesh, served with a local bread known as Kulac, a meat and leek pie made with a thin pastry called Byrek, Musaka, Ajvar, and freshly caught fish served in a Mediterranean style. Fish dishes are often flavored with white vinegar. Many dishes are served with wine from one of the local vineyards.
