Ideas for a Montenegrin Themed Party

Montenegro is among the world's newest international sides, only having been established after the 2006 World Cup. Part of the former state of Yugoslavia, Montenegro entered the 2006 World Cup as part of the Serbia & Montenegro team, failing to qualify for the finals. The first official competition that the independent Montenegro national team competed in was therefore the 2010 World Cup qualifying stage; they again failed to qualify for the World Cup Finals.

The culture of Montenegro has been influenced by many other nations over the centuries, which given its geographical location should come as no surprise. Over the years the influences of Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome, the Ottoman Empire, the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Christianity, Islam and Communism have all had their influence on what was once a fierce warrior nation. Even today, the "brave falcons" of the national football team still like to uphold the ingrained tradition of bravery and fighting to the death for their nation.

Food for a Montenegro Themed Party

Montenegro's traditional cuisine has a distinctively Italian flavour which shows in the bread-making, its cured meats, its cheese-making, and its wine and spirits. This is mixed with a large influence from Turkey, Albania, Greece and the Middle East, bringing in pita breads, moussaka, kebabs and Turkish style breads, pastries and sweets. Dishes such as goulash and other stews are also common.

It's also fair to say - without any disrespect - that the cuisine of Montenegro is not too dissimilar to that of its near neighbours and other former Yugoslavian states, such as Serbia, Macedonia, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Croatia, so we will include "regional" recipes here where appropriate. Other recipes from these nations can be found on each country's individual page.

Just try some of these next time you are throwing a Montenegrin football party:

Drink for a Montenegrin Party

Montenegro produces wine, beer and brandy. The brandy is called "Rakija", and is usually made from grapes, although varieties produced from plums and pears are also available. Of the locally produced beers, "Niksic" is the best known and most widely available brand. Montenegrin wine production is a long-standing tradition in the southern and coastal regions. The best known Montenegrin wines are whites such as "Krstac" and Chardonnay, and reds such as "Vranac".
