I herewith can confirm that I have known Jadranka Baljak for many years and we’ve built up the successful relationship over the years.
Because of the nature of my job, I am frequently in Serbia. So, for several occasions, such as garden parties for my employees and my friends, I have hired Jadranka Baljak to make and organize all foods and sweets for those events.
I could proudly say that every time I was positively surprised by her innovation and willingness to give something new.
Beside Serbian specialties, she offered wide range of Italian pasta with wonderful mixture of prosciutto and blue cheese, with roasted pine nuts and basilica, as well as all kind of fresh tomato sauce with minced meat and peanuts. Not to mention all kind of starters that are not only tasty but beautiful decorated.
Exceptionally want to praise her fruit cakes, with crust without flour, only with egg white, nuts and almonds, and fresh fruits in tasty vanilla filling with touch of mint herbs in it.
I could highly recommend Jadranka Baljak as creative, imaginative and responsible person that is ready to meet your requirements.

It is with honest that I recommend Jadranka Baljak as a great and creative cook in many ways.
I am her friend for years, but last 12 years I am living in Slovenia.
Well known to me all her specialties from Serbian food to Mexican, Arabic, and Italian….
Recently, I was hired her to come to Slovenia, and made several dinners for my friends from Greece.
She was up to the task as before. She made all kind of Greek specialties, such as spezofai (grilled sausages with mixed vegetables), grilled feta, tomato balls, Greek salad, and desert with fresh pineapple with honey and cinnamon, served with little pieces of chocolate cake.
Next evening we have got lamb from the oven in lemon sauce served with potato filled with cheese cream and oregano. For desert we have got nice homemade ice cream of vanilla and chocolate with fresh fruit dressing.
I still remember that perfect evening. So, I also want to emphasize her organization skills as well as ability to serve the food in most appropriate way.
I do hope she will be more successful in her future life.
