    The market in Zadar is so impressive, both the fruits and vegetables and other produce and the fish market is awesome. Tamara was an excellent guide and then Petra showed us how to prepare squid and then stuff it and cook the dish, then the mussels and an intriguing and different way of making little doughnuts.
