In about 10 days I will be off to visit the island of Pag in Croatia and I am really looking forward to this culinary adventure. This Croatian island is in the northern Adriatic and although it is only the fifth-largest island of the Croatian coast, it has the longest coastline.
I'm there to explore and write about the foodie side of Pag and also to write a travelogue. Pag is rich with heritage dating back to prehistoric times, and is famous for its sea salt which was its first industry over a thousand years ago.
Pag boasts a world class cheese called Paški sir which is made from the milk of its island sheep. Besides visiting the cheese makers, I'm hoping to a learn more about their honey, lamb, olives and red wines that all contribute to making this a very exciting foodie destination.
This will be my first trip to Croatia, and I'm excited for a chance to meet the producers of the island's food or drink, and hear them tell their stories. I've never lost that child-like sense of wonderment whenever I travel somewhere for the first time so right now I'm like a kid waiting for Christmas!
