Dubrovnik Food Story is a family- run agency led by us, two sisters – Marija & Ana. Both of us share passion for food, tradition and hometown to all those who come to Dubrovnik. Food tours that we create are fusion of local history and gastronomy specially designed to cheer you up and leave you happily ever after. Small groups, friendly atmosphere, places behind the scene but beyond your expectations, good food and drink are main characteristics of our tours.
Everything she knows about cooking she has learned from her mother and grandmother. She made her first steps in a small village near Dubrovnik, where she spent a lot of time running through the fields,
milking the cows and collecting fresh eggs. All these memories may have made her decide what she would do in her life.
Food became her passion. She graduated from Management in Tourism and work in travel agencies and hotels for years. Finally, in 2013, she decided to follow her dream and open an agency specialized in gourmet experiences in the
After working alone for four years, her sister Ana joined her and now they are a foodie team ready to show the travellers the very best of the local food and drink offer. She always creates some new gourmet stories, plans tasty experiences, and reads many cookbooks in between. Her favourite food is lamb on the spit or mussels buzzara style. But, actually, she prefers that the food describes her instead of talking about herself.
Ana is an avid reader and food lover in a constant search to try some new flavours and spices. She especially likes unusual food combinations and fusion cuisines, which is the result of her mother’s origin
from the neighbouring country Bosnia & Herzegovina and father’s origin from Slavonia (region on the north-east of Croatia).
Having graduated from Aquaculture and studied Mariculture, she has gained new insights about seafood, especially local specialties such as oysters, mussels and fish. Besides studying and working, she is learning languages so she can speak Spanish and Italian and she currently learns Norwegian. Her ideal day starts and ends in nature and involves a lot of activity and food, but nothing too fancy. On ˝lazy days˝ some chocolate and a good book are enough. :)
