Cumin & Caraway note for The Adriatics

If you are heading to the Adriatic this summer and enjoy your Asian cooking you might want to take note.

Caraway is in Slavic languages often referred to as “Cumin” whereas normal Cumin is “Roman Cumin” so if you happily find Cumin on the supermarket shelf in Croatia or Montenegro it may actually be Caraway you will get.

Provisioners may also not know the difference so if you want to make sure you have Cumin and Coriander onboard you may want to stock up on it beforehand.
