Lovely soup.
Saw your Pogaca video recipe on youtube. Wonderful. We also use the word Pogača in Croatia. I would love to try making Pogača. Absolutely love dill.

Will wait for the recipe to see what kind of cheese you used. Feta?

Hello, I've used Turkish white cheese but it's almost the same with feta, so feta is perfectly fine! I'm also suggesting alternative ingredients (e.g. white cheese or feta) on Youtube in the description :okay:
