Koh - a favorite delicacy of our past

Koch belongs to Serbian traditional cuisine, is named after a word of German origin, and is believed to originate from our shared history with the Austro-Hungarians.

In the past, there was not a large selection of sweets, as is the case today, so children looked forward to koh, patishpani soaked in milk. This vintage scone is delicious,

As in the past there was not too much choice of products, koh was the simplest delicacy that included semolina, milk, eggs, sugar, flour and various optional extras, which every household had at all times.

Today, hardly any small child knows what koh actually is, and even fewer children have once tasted this delicacy from our past. This dessert is very easy to prepare, so if you didn't have the opportunity to try it as a child, maybe now is the right time to surprise yourself and your loved ones with a good recipe for koh.
