Get to know me better
I really love to eat!
My name is Jolanda Vitaljić.
I am Dalmatian, born and bred, raised on fresh sardines and leafy greens.
I fled motherland to study philosophy at the University of Zagreb.

There I started my adventures in professional cooking, it was 15 years ago. Last 7 years I run the kitchen of one of Split's premier Dalmatian restaurants. It's time for something new!
