As a child growing up in the former Yugoslavia, Dragica Grabovac unleashed her love of cooking by baking dozens upon dozens of holiday cookies in her family's kitchen. After coming to Los Angeles as an adult, she continued to nurture her culinary skills by entertaining guests from across Europe and the United States. Today, she draws on that rich background while preparing schnitzel, crepes, stuffed cabbage, and other Croatian-inspired cuisine at Cafe LuMar. She also stocks close to 200 items imported from Croatia, including jams, smoked meats, and wine, according to Pasadena Star News.
