The whole island – on a plate!
The symbolic key, often used in our attractive promotional campaigns by our island metropolis – Supetar, comes from one of the local patrons, St. Peter, the locksmith of paradise.
And if you want to unlock a truly heavenly experience for the palate, we suggest you hop on the first ferry and head to one of the attractive Supetar restaurants, taverns, oil and wine tasting locations, or enjoy some agritourism! We’re convinced that this experience will make you a true gastro-expert.
The Supetar Tourist Board and the Supetar Agricultural Cooperative launched this project aimed at promoting indigenous Brač’s gastronomy back in 2016.
The best is – always autochthonous. We particularly like the Dolce Vita hiking trail’s offer when it comes to Supetar’s gastronomy, which, as its name implies, invokes a sweet life!
The trail, which starts at agrotourism location on top of Supetar, boasts a total length of just over six kilometres and connects several attractive gastro points together – five restaurants, taverns and farms, two art galleries, and even a family winery.
A few years ago, Supetar launched a laudable gastro-traditional initiative that has continued to take place to this very day. Namely, it is a project called Otočka kuhinja (Island kitchen), which tasked the city with returning the indigenous dishes made according to the recipes of local Brač grandmothers to the island’s taverns and restaurants, from ingredients obtained from their own gardens!
Through the process of assigning a special standard for the restaurants, taverns, OPGs, and tasting rooms, Supetar locals wished to bring back many traditional, native dishes back to the table and, of course, a few nice bottles of Plavac mali are implied!
Seek them out and try one of the emblematic Brač-based products and the fruit of centuries-old tradition – olive oil of exceptional quality – at Museum Uja in Škrip.
Don’t forget about the gastro stars!
Is there anything better than delicious food based on healthy domestic fruits and vegetables served in restaurants overlooking the island’s landscape?
We don’t doubt it, but don’t forget the fabulous stars of Brač either – the delicious hrapoćuša cake, with the ruffled appearance of the Brač karst, and the ancient, crunchy vitalac, so unique and special, that they are included in the list of national intangible assets.
