1. Hot sauce by Volim Ljuto
Volim Ljuto produces some of the finest hot sauces in this part of Europe. Croatian cuisine is generally light on the spice, so the popularity of this spicy sauce is a happy surprise. The chilies are grown out of their farm in the pastoral Krapina-Zagorje county, and the product is sold in the company-owned shop ‘Spicy Days’ in Zagreb, besides shelves full of craft beer, hot sauces and marinades. The uber-cool branding and flavorsome, piquant quality of their hot sauce has garnered attention beyond Croatia, and they now ship internationally from their website.
