Pristina, Kosovo, is using hyper-local ingredients in inventive, new ways.

Kosovo is the youngest nation in Europe, granted independence only 12 years ago. While its cuisine has always combined ideas from its neighboring countries, it’s in a unique place where it can now develop its own voice in the culinary world.

Hyper-local ingredients are at the center of every grilled meat, pastry, and stuffed pepper dish. For locals, this is an exciting wave to ride, and for visitors, it’s a chance to try local ingredients from the nation’s abundance of farmland.
