In the USA, I cooked in professional kitchens for 40+ years and taught culinary arts to kids for 18 years. Since our move to Croatia, I have been exploring the world through different countries' cuisines, using quality ingredients grown in our garden when available or purchased from local small producers. From my commercial kitchen located on the Adriatic coast, our guests can choose any of the following:

  • A dish from our rotating weekly menu by order, featuring international dishes like doro wat, enchiladas, schnitzel ala Holstein, Ramen bowl, and more (vegetarian and vegan items upon request). Meals are served on our patio or picked up at an arranged time at our kitchen door. 

  • Daily breakfast or lunch at an agreed-upon time.​

  • A custom-made meal for a special occasion, including a bottle of local wine.

  • Live culinary classes for adults and kids


Whether our guests would like a surprise birthday dinner, a romantic dinner for two, or a family event celebration, we sit down together to plan a custom-made meal. We can make a three-course meal, including an appetizer, main course and a dessert, served with a bottle of local wine, coffee, tea and home-made juice or herbal tea. Vegan and vegetarian options are available.

My rotating weekly menu features dishes from different parts of the world. Once a week I send out a menu and our guests decide if there is anything they like that week. They let me know at least 24 hrs before. We serve and share a meal with our guests on our dining patio in the back yard. Check out my icookwithjoe Facebook or Instagram for previous meals.

I also make our own artisan bread, cinnamon buns, pretzels and bagels and Laura makes sourdough bread. These items can be ordered 24 hrs before or can be on your breakfast plate, together with eggs, fresh, homemade cheese, fruit salad, freshly squeezed orange juice, or my own homemade granola and yogurt.
