The gastronomic tradition of Šibenik-Knin County is widely known. The similarities with Italian and Turkish cuisine are quite obvious, which is connected to the long Venetian and Ottoman rule in this area during the Middle Ages. The main characteristics of local cuisine are fresh food and in most cases simple preparation, with not too much spices and aromatic plants (except parsley, garlic, onion and bay leaf), and it can be divided in two major varieties, the one connected to the coastal and insular part and the other characteristic for the continental part of the county.
