Out of last year's 26 columns published in Newsweek by Mr. Bikont, only Croatia had the honor to be written about two times (except Poland). The headline of the text was „A culinary postcard".
In the introduction of the text itself the author used simple words in describing Croatia:
«Owing to the diversity of its cuisine, Croatia is an ideal holiday place for true gastro hedonists! ".
With a humorous and authentic photography, the text is enriched by adding the recipe at his choice, fresh caught scampi with gnocchi.
