Cure: Hvar

We had an amazing birthday dinner for Mel on the little island of Hvar in Croatia.  They served strong herbal brandy to start the meal, then pieces of carob grown on the island before the appetizers.

We shared a bottle of a dry white wine from the Paship vineyards, gnocchi with squid ink and truffle oil, a stew with polenta and some local fish, and a traditional Croatian pastry for dessert filled with walnuts and crushed rose petals.
