Bosnia-Herzegovenia's food is somewhat similar to Kosova food, though connoisseurs claim Turkish influences are strong. Specialties include skewered meat, stuffed onions, boned chicken with wheat, pita, burek (meat pie), and Bosanski lonac (Bosnian pot), an absolutely delicious meat- and- vegetable stew made with white wine in an earthenware pot.
