The Balkans are full of surprises and Kosovo is no exception. Food is a definitely highlight of Europe’s youngest country, whether you are in the countryside, fueling for a hike above Prizren or dishing with dignitaries in Pristina. Like the rest of southeastern Europe, the food is fresh, variety ensures you will not be bored and vegetables are abundant. Most likely you will have dairy products like yogurt that are sourced from only a few miles away. Meat dishes like cevapcici (grilled meat) and pljeskavica (similar to Middle Eastern lulah kebab) pair well with vibrant salads. Washed down with local wine and topped off by rich deserts, the cuisine, and hospitality, will convince you to stay longer. I should know: that happened to me.
