Hi, my name is Alberta and I'm excited to present my cooking experience to the Eatwith community, Albertina Royals Dinner. Since I was a little girl my grandmother has been teaching me traditional Dalmatian recipes in our family home which is located in the beautiful quarter of Spinut that sits adjacent to the Marjan hill peninsula. Some of the recipes are over 100 years old! My home has been described by friends as a living museum. Walls covered with old paintings and drawings from my grandfather's generation of Split artisans along with shelves packed with old ceramics and antiques, it is the perfect environment for our dinner experience. I will be serving both meat and fish dishes, along with side dishes. All produce is sourced locally from Splits well-known markets. The meal is accompanied with homemade grappa and locally sourced wine. I can cater to specific taste buds and allergies I just need to know in advance. I am happy to share and demonstrate my recipes to guests. I am always entertaining local friends for dinner and want tourists to experience an authentic dalmatian dinner, just like I remember my grandmother showing me.

This was just unbelievable. It blew our minds. We didn’t know what to expect but I knew I wanted a personal Croatian experience and I knew I wanted to see inside someone’s home! Little did I know Albertina is such an awesome person and a phenomenal chef. The five of us chatted and laughed for hours, drank her homemade walnut brandy, and ate her delicious food. She is so so so cool and nice and smart and creative. Her recipes were from her grandmother. It was truly Croatian. She served us the freshest prosciutto from her friends farm! Oh gosh, we could go on and on about how good this was. Please do yourself a favor and have dinner with Albertina. She is the best!

I just spent a week in Croatia and my evening with Vjera (and Ellie, an AirBnB tenant) was just incredible. Really great food, beautiful wine and great conversation in a genuine local setting. In the generically tourist-oriented Split (pizzas and burgers everywhere), this was an amazing treat. Easily the best evening of my stay!
