Baranja kulen is a traditional cured meat delicacy that has been produced in Baranja since the end of the 19th century. For locals, Baranja kulen represents a source of pride and a symbol of prosperity; a delicacy people have always enjoyed on special occasions. The recipe and the secret of its preparation have been passed down from generation to generation for centuries.
From selecting the finest cuts of pork, preparing the filling, stuffing it in a natural casing (“katica”) to smoking the product, each piece of Baranja kulen is made by hand.
After several months’ maturation, Baranja kulen gets its well-known appearance and flavour, greatly appreciated among lovers of piquant flavours and among those who value heritage and origin of a product.
Baranja kulen bears the protected geographical indication of the European Union.
