Visitors are always stunned by the beautiful nature of our region, but they are also pleasantly surprised by the traditional food. And West Serbia certainly is the place to taste some of the authentic dishes that are still prepared according to the old recipes.

Starting a day with komplet lepinja in the morning (roasted flat bun filled with eggs, kajmak, and sauce of meat roast) and homemade sour milk is a must, especially when you come to Užice where the specialty originated from.

A dish that you have to try is roasted veal or lamb under the bell. It is on the menu of almost all the traditional restaurants in the region. Although it is considered to be somewhat heavy food, it can easily be burned in taking long walks or any other outdoor activities.

Another specialty that is mostly consumed for breakfast is kačamak. One can often hear locals say how “kačamak is healthier than any cereal or cornflakes”. The cooked corn flour is served hot with milk, kajmak, or white cheese according to your taste.

When it comes to appetizers, pršuta is the one that represents the region the most. This meat is stored in traditional cottages to be dried slowly and occasionally smoked. One of the best pork or beef dried meat originates from Zlatibor villages. When you come to someone’s home in the countryside, you will be served pršuta, white cheese, rakija, and Serbian black coffee.

The national drink is often made from plums, representing a strong fruit brendy, but there is a variety of tastes that one can try. It is customary to have rakija before a meal with family and friends, or along with a coffee when one comes to visit.

Our region is also well known for cultivating raspberries, especially in the area of Arilje. Not only that this is where one can try one of the sweetest raspberries in the country, but also dried ones dipped in chocolate. An ice-cream with raspberry syrup on top can be a true refreshment during summer.
