The Specialty Dish: Maneštra

Maneštra is a hearty stew of white beans slow-cooked with dried meat, bone, and a range of spices. Preparing this meal requires careful consideration — the beans need to be boiled and washed before you add them to the mix of ingredients, which include salt, pepper, onion, pancetta, garlic, and more. These ingredients cook on low heat for at least two hours. And then you get a flavorful dish full of rich aromas and savory depths.
