Serbian cooking is a mixture of all of the people who have lived in this country.  Each of the regions in Serbia has its own specialties.  Traditional Serbian foods include cevapcici (the national dish of grilled and seasoned meat eaten with raw onions and warm bread), pljeskavica, sarma (stuffed cabbage rolls), pasulj, burek, gibanica and ajvar.  Pelmeni is a popular dish of meat-filled dumplings. Grilled meats are served in almost every dish.   A national drink is Slivovitz which is a plum brandy. Serbians love their coffee, especially strong dark Turkish coffees.  Historically, the Serbian diet included many animal products such as meat, fats, dairy, and eggs.
