Food and drink 

Montenegrin cuisine can be divided into Northern, Continental and Mediterranean. Nearly all produce is organic, and tastes are distinctive. A traditional form of cooking is ispod - 'under the coals' - in a pot known as a sac. The northern area features forests berries, blueberries, raspberries and strawberries, also herbal teas and wild mushrooms. They cook with sour cream (kajmak), yoghurt and both cow's and sheep's cheese. The finest kajmak, it is claimed, comes from Trsa, the highest pasture in Durmitor, naturally flavoured with wild herbs makes a delicious dip.  

Dishes include stewed sauerkraut, lamb cooked in milk, peppers in kajmak and Durmitor steak. Montenegrins are noted carnivores. The continental area uses a lot of fish from Skadar Lake, especially carp, trout and eel, smoked, fried and in salad. They prepare smoked ham, cheese in olive oil, sausages and smoked mutton ham. Around Podgorica they stuff cabbage leaves with minced meat and rice, and carp with risotto and dried plums. The Mediterranean holy trinity is wine, fish and olive oil. Olive oil is the basic of every meal with fish, salad and vegetables and sauces, with garlic and parsley.  

Montenegro produces both red and white wines. The terraced slopes of Crmnica are the source of the pick of the crop. Vranac is the best known and an eminently drinkable red, with a fine ruby colour and a Mediterranean character. Vranac pro Cordem is a vranac with a high level of prothoanthocyanidol and is marketed as being good for your heart. The third popular variety is Merlot. Krstac is a pleasant dry white which competes with the local Chardonnay and with a very decent Sauvignon.    

The real national drink is rakije, a white grape brandy which is the universal mark of Montenegrin hospitality and a great source of goodwill. The slightly upmarket version is Kruna, distilled in copper stills fired with vine twigs and wood, and the Podgorica variety is called Crnogorski Prvijenac.
