Rural household ‘The Taste of Memory’ is owned by Bogdanović family. This family has been making traditional Njeguški cheese for decades. Spouses Drago and Vera Bogdanović stay here during the spring, summer and fall months, and they grow vegetables typical for the region.
Together with the old tastes of the region and dishes that have been served here for centuries, ‘The Taste of Memory’ rural household grows vegetables in their garden, vegetables that add that special something to their cuisine. This is a rock-strewn area, deficient in water, so the garden is planted with vegetables that don’t need to much water – white potato, onion, garlic, carrot, celery, cabbage, collard and spices. Fruit is made into juices and jams, they also make dandelion syrup, and they dry different plant species and make tea of them (thyme, mint, mugwort, linden…) If you choose to visit at the right period, you can take part in these activities.
This household is situated at the foothills of the mountain Lovćen, some 1 – 2 km away from the National Park Lovćen and only several kilometers from one of the most beautiful viewpoints ever, the place overlooking the entire Boka Bay. This is a distinct countryside where Mediterranean and mountain climate mix together. This is a famous historical place situated between Boka and old Montenegro. This natural and historical mix has influenced the culture, architecture, way of life and food. For decades, the people of the region have used this distinction to create the well-known Njeguški cheese and ham, which, together with bread and mead, make the typical cuisine of the area. The household is situated in the hamlet called Kopit, only a hundred meters away from the central part of Njeguši, the place where a famous partisan monument and post office is placed. The household also offers the possibility to taste and buy the products produced by rural households from other Montenegrin regions (mead, brandy, wine and olives). You can try the hiking tours with a licensed guide, too and visit the historically significant locations – get to know the cultural and historical heritage of the region (hiking tour of the Njeguši area, then Krstac – VelikiZalazi tour and finally Njeguši – Lovćen tour). These have to be arranged. The household offers help and information on transport, nearby locations that should be visited, and accommodation in other places in Montenegro.
