Unveiling The Essence of Gastronomy
Introducing New Culinary Delights at The Chedi
Nestled along the picturesque Adriatic coastline, The Chedi Luštica Bay is renowned for its luxurious accommodations and breathtaking views. Drawing inspiration from the surrounding natural bounty, the talented chefs at The Chedi have crafted a menu that caters to both vegans and food enthusiasts seeking a unique local gastronomic experience. Speaking about local food, we take immense pride in our ability to create exceptional dishes using the freshest ingredients sourced from the sea, the trees, and the farm.
While exploring vegan cuisine, guests can also savor the flavors of locally sourced produce and traditional Montenegrin recipes that have been thoughtfully reinvented. From vibrant dishes with sun-ripened tomatoes, olives, and aromatic herbs to healthy desserts, the chefs at The Chedi have perfected the art of blending modern vegan techniques with regional influences.
In addition to our remarkable vegan dishes, we are proud to offer a selection of invigorating cold-pressed detox juices. These refreshing elixirs, derived from the essence of nature, provide a nourishing and revitalizing experience. Imagine sipping on a cool and zesty citrus-infused juice, enlivening your senses, and quenching your thirst. Or perhaps you prefer the crisp and refreshing taste of green juices, packed with leafy greens and revitalizing ingredients. Whichever flavor profile appeals to you, our cold-pressed juices are designed to enhance your well-being and provide the perfect rejuvenation after your yoga session or outdoor adventures.
FROM THE SEA
As you step into our bustling kitchen, the tantalizing aroma of the Adriatic Sea immediately captivates your senses. And amidst this aromatic symphony, there is a special feature that elevates our kitchen to new heights—our renowned mussels. Every Wednesday evening, The Spot becomes a hub of excitement and anticipation as we pay homage to the glorious flavors of mussels. One of our most beloved preparations during Mussel Days is the exquisite Buzara style.
In our kitchen, Buzara comes to life as plump and tender mussels are cooked in a succulent broth that harmoniously blends white wine, garlic, fresh herbs, and a touch of olive oil. With each bite, you will enjoy a taste of the salty sea paired with the perfect wine and live music.
FROM THE TREES
While Montenegro is known for its fresh seafood, The Chedi Luštica Bay has managed to reimagine the concept of Mediterranean cuisine by incorporating local ingredients that celebrate the area's diverse culinary heritage. Our kitchen embraces the gifts of the tree, incorporating a variety of flavors and textures that showcase the incredible diversity found in nature. One of the highlights of the menus at The Chedi is the innovative use of carob, a locally sourced ingredient with a rich history in Mediterranean cuisine. Carob, known for its natural sweetness and nutty undertones, lends itself beautifully to a range of vegan desserts, providing a guilt-free indulgence for guests. It also contains antioxidants and dietary fiber. Carob has a lower glycemic index compared to chocolate and many other sweet treats. This means that it causes a slower and more gradual increase in blood sugar levels, making it a potentially suitable alternative for individuals with diabetes or those watching their blood sugar levels. Also, it is a good source of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin E, vitamin K, calcium, magnesium, and potassium.
FROM THE FARM
Moving on to the farm, we celebrate the wealth of ingredients that it provides, nurturing our culinary creations with the essence of the land. Meet another unexpected gem that awaits discerning diners at The Chedi Luštica Bay—donkey milk. This unique ingredient has been revered for its health benefits and has been used in traditional recipes for centuries. The hotel's visionary chefs have ingeniously incorporated donkey milk into food creations, offering a touch of luxury and authenticity. Experience the creaminess of donkey milk in the new dessert named Kapljica.
On the very same day when Kapljica, a delightful donkey, was born at this esteemed farm, our talented chefs were inspired to create a dessert named Kapljica. This dessert captures the essence of this special occasion, blending the creamy goodness of donkey milk with other exquisite ingredients. As you indulge in the Kapljica dessert, let the story of Kapljica, the newborn donkey, deepen your appreciation for The Chedi Luštica Bay's commitment to supporting local communities and showcasing the best of the region's culinary traditions, all while honoring the renowned Montenegrin donkey farm and its remarkable inhabitants.
The Chedi Luštica Bay promises an unforgettable experience where every bite tells a story of innovation, respect for nature, and the vibrant tapestry of flavors that make this region truly unique.
