ISO Bosnian food recipes

Hi all. I am new to this web site and I am really glad that I found it. Perhaps someone can help me with my problem. I am getting married to a man from Bosnia ( I am american ) and I would really like to learn how to make some of the food from his country. I could go to my future in-laws but his mother doesn't speak english that well and I don't speak Bosnian that well either so that is out and I want it to be a surprise. Do any of you have any recipies that you can share with me or maybe let me know where I could find them.

Thanks...
Clueless American Girl... Ronda :)

did my best on the web, but not much out there...

here's one for a soup called
Chorba

here's a few, but the English translations are pretty rough...

BOSNIA - HERZEGOVINA / TRADITIONS / RECIPES


here's a sad one...
No-Bake Chocolate War Cake (1994 Bosnia)


If I find anything else, I'll post again.


Good Luck!

I'm going to monitor this one out of curiousity. My husband's family was all eastern European, but I only learned some of the Slovak/Slovene stuff. What I recommend to anyone going in to another's culture (be it marrying or freindship or anything in between) is as soon as you are ready, ask his Mom to teach YOU how to make his favorite dishes from the old country, rather than trying to accomplish them yourself at first. Get a shopping list from her if time is limited, if not have her go shopping with you. You won't suffer in comparison, and you can really bond in the kitchen. MIL & I were never close freinds, but I treasure the times she taught me halupke, potica, and others.

Thanks for the advice...I actually learned my lesson the hard way after I burt dinner the other night trying to make on of the dishes. He came home from work and laughed at me because I was crying. We cleaned up the HUGE mess I had made and then went to his grandmothers house and had dinner there. They started talking (in his language) and she started laughing also and she grabbed my hands and started talking. When translated it was something along the lines of 'You silly girl, you come over and I will help you learn" I felt silly but what the heck... I tried and they took it with humor rather than offense...

Thanks So much for the recipies that have been posted but I think I'll let his grandma, mom and aunt teach me this weekend..... :oops:

kkcote, this is the only thing that i've found for bosnian spinach and cheese pie, written in english. i'm not sure if it's exactly what you were looking for, but i hope it helps. if you have a recipe in bosnian, i may be able to get it translated for you. i have a few macedonian, bosnian, and albanian friends. (i just don't hang out with them at the same time, if you get my drift... )

Recipe: Bosnian Spinach Pie- serves 8!
1 package thawed filo pastry
2 bags washed fresh spinach
1 egg
1/4 cup sour cream (can use low fat)
1/2 lb feta cheese, crumbled
1 cup shredded mild cheddar cheese
olive oil
1 1/2teaspoons salt
low-fat milk
low-fat plain yogurt (optional)
Preheat oven to 350F Wash and drain spinach. Chop spinach and put in a big glass bowl. Add salt and mix with hands. Leave thespinach to sit for about 10 minutes to allow the salt to draw out the water from the vegetable. Drain the spinach by either squeezing it bit by bit with your hand over the sink or by spinning several times in a salad spinner.Transfer drained spinach into a new bowl.Add egg, and sour cream.Fold in feta and cheddar cheese. Put some olive oil in a small bowl.Grease a 9"*13" glass or metal baking pan.Take your phyllo dough sheets and lie the sheets, stacked, on a dry surface.TIP: (While adding the filling, you may wish to cover the dough with a dry towel and then a damp one to keep it from drying out or flaking) Place one sheet of dough into the pan and cut away excess.Brush with oil, using either your hands or a pastry brush.Repeat until dough is 6 or 7 layers.Add a skim of filling with hands and spread evenly.Repeat steps 16-18 until the pie reaches the top of the pan or you run out of ingredients.Just make sure you finish with the dough on top, sort of like lasagna.Place pie in the oven, uncovered, about 45 minutes.The top becomes flaky.Pour on top of the pie while it is baking, 1/4 cup sour cream blended with 0.125 cup of milk.Bake for 15 more minutes.This dish can be served warm or room temperature. It is traditionally served with a yogurt beverage which is easily replicated by mixing the plain yogurt with milk, in equal parts.
