Central Europe, according to Alice F. A. Mutton in Central Europe. A Regional and Human Geography, 1961 (http://img143.imageshack.us/img143/5955/file0006ve9.jpg) (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

In Zagreb, Croatia, we thought that we were eating Croatian pasta but the waiter described it as “home-made Croatian dumplings” – it was an accompaniment to some excellent beef.

It’s interesting to observe that in Central Europe, the “dumpling belt” seems to wider than the “schnitzel and goulash belt”! Of course, the excellent Central European dumplings are nothing like those of childhood memories and school dinners.

Anyway, yesterday we arrived in Venice and sampled some excellent fish, and where we know that the pasta is the  real thing. Finally, no more dumplings 🙂
