The preparation of dishes ” under the bell” is a traditional way of cooking in Dalmatia. The food is half cooked and falf baked in its sauces, so the flavour and scents of the dish are especially accentuated. Peka is placed at the top of Dalmatian cuisine. Originally the food was placed on a clay tray and put on the fire of high-calorie wood. The food is put in a shallow dish and covered with iron lid ( bell). The bell has got a special edge that keeps live coals and thus makes high temperature inside the bell. It reminds us of modern roast meat but being prepared in such a way it has different flavours and scents. Hidden amongst Korčulan greenery there is a spot where you can witness the preparation of peka and try food prepared this old way.
