The globally known Michelin Guide for restaurants will soon announce its annual selection of Croatian restaurants on its digital platforms, and this year it is planning the first printed guide for all of Croatia in English.
Last year, that selection was announced at the beginning of March, and 2019 is the third consecutive year when Michelin announces its annual selection of Croatian restaurants.
Their number is increasing every year, and this is expected this year again, so new stars are also possible, Croatian National Tourist Board (CNTB) reports.

Taste the coolest cured meat – Kulen Slavonia, the bread basket of Croatia and a region famed for its hospitality, also has its protected kulen (often called kulin), a popular gift and souvenir from the region. Similar to its Baranja cousin, the main difference is that there is more paprika and white pepper in the Baranja version, with more bacon fat in Slavonian kulen, with some homemade recipes even containing another local staple – rakija. You know Slavonians – when in doubt add a little bacon. And rakija! #CroatiaFullOfFlavours #Kulen #VisitSlavonia #ShareSlavonia #foodies #foodblogger #gastronogram #foodography #foodlover #foodheaven
Related to the first printed Michelin Guide for Croatia, which is expected this year, CNTB only notes that the guide will present every restaurant from the selection whereby an introductory text will present the Croatian gastronomy as a whole.
Actually, Croatia started this year with total 62 restaurants at the Michelin list, out of which three have one star each, 55 have a recommendation, and four have Michelin’s Bib Gourmand designations, which were bestowed for the first time last year. You can check which restaurants are involved at the Croatia 365 Gourmet guide which deals with the Croatian enogastronomy.
Michelin awarded the first stars to restaurants in distant 1926, and that designation has not lost in importance until today, which speaks of the power of the Michelin brand.
