Welcome to Oliver kitchen

Oliver Ćosić was born in Dubrovnik on March 10, 1970, and from early childhood he showed his inclination and love for cooking by watching his late father cook. He also received his talent for cooking and many other arts such as music, drawing and poetry as a gift from his of a father who was a skilled cook-improviser who worked in many well-known restaurants in Dubrovnik and Cavtat. Especially in Cavtat, where Oliver grew up watching his father in action. Even though Oliver’s father worked in restaurants and according to recipes, magic happened in his kitchen.Pomp in his own kitchen, both his father and Oliver prepare the best dishes, which according to the reviews of those who have tried them, receive the best marks.Breaking down the barriers of proper cooking Oliver takes you on a journey that you will remember for the rest of your life and not just that with his sin to be a perfectionist he creates memories,spreading love and peace,no borders,no wars,all humans united as one living in harmony. His orthodox and improvisational approach to every dish would knock even the toughest critic off his feet. The thing is that Oliver not only knows the local Dalmatian cuisine, but breaks down the boundaries by cooking dishes of Turkish, Hungarian, Italian and even Australian origin, because he himself lived in Australia in Adelaide from 1993-2009. it’s wine! Cooking and wine go hand in hand, and Oliver’s collection of South Australian wines reaches a collection of as many as 600 bottles of various wines from the best 1996 and 1998 vintages. Adelaide, as the city where Oliver lived, was surrounded by wine regions such as which are the Barossa Valley, Coonawarra, Clare Valley and many others. Oliver enrolls in a course for the South Australian Wine Association that lasts 8 weeks and subscribes to the Winestate magazine(The editor was Petar Šimić-Croatian origin), while in addition to all this he cooks for his friends and becomes famous for his curry kangaroo and steak from kangaroos and home made lasagna . Returning to Croatia in 2009 with his family, Oliver continues to show how much passion he has for cooking, and after he separated in 2017, his mother helps him learn the old traditional recipes that were passed down from generation to generation, both from his grandmother and his mother. Currently, Oliver continues to follow in the footsteps of his father, who was a virtuoso not only in cooking,(he was an amazing painter(aquarel),guitar player and singer / Mark Knofler shook his hand in hotel Libertas in Dubrovnik where they where staying while preparing for the album Brothers in Arms)!Oliver discovers some new horizons and breaks down the limits and barriers of everyday cooking, while no one can enter his kitchen, that is very modest, the dishes that come out of that modest kitchen are far from modest. Is it a grill, Webber, Peka (traditional way of preparing food) – under the bell or only the Oliver kitchen will take you on a journey of no return, a path of inspiration, love and passion for cooking!

Cooking is also often carried out outside of personal quarters, for example at restaurants, or schools. Bakeries were one of the earliest forms of cooking outside the home, and bakeries in the past often offer the cooking of food provided by their customers as an additional service. Now factory food preparation is common.
