DALMATIAN STATE OF MIND
You know the feeling when you just can’t be bothered to do anything at all, when you’re too tired to even lift a finger? In Dalmatia, that feeling has a name: it’s called fjaka. A unique Dalmatian state of mind and body, often felt the most on summer days when it’s piping-hot out, fjaka is a sweet nothingness of sorts, a lethargy often used in Dalmatia as an excuse for chilling out.
You don’t want to miss the deliciousness of this sweet energy bomb, a traditional delicacy protected as cultural heritage of the Makarska region. A rich combo of almonds, eggs and sugar made according to a secret centuries-old recipe, the cake is served at weddings, holidays and festivities, cut into rhomb-shaped pieces.
