Life in the Mediteranean climate is different. One feels the warmth of the sun, endless blue sky the occasional white ‘Schaefchen’ clouds passing by. Do you feel like a sail or swim? It is beautiful in summer in Montenegro.
The Mediterranean Sea is connected to the Atlantic Ocean, surrounded by the Mediterranean Basin and completely enclosed by land on the north by Southern Europe and Anatolia on the SOUTH by North Africa. The ingredients of Mediterranean cuisine are from those of Northern Europe, with olive oil instead of butter, wine instead of beer. One major historical connections of the region, as well as the impact of the Mediterranean Sea on the region’s climate and economy, mean that these cuisines share dishes beyond the core trio of oil, bread and wine.
The overarching characterisctics by Mediterranean Cuisine are largely shaped through the agricultural bounty that heavily influences the vegetable-dominant cuisines of the region.
