Baked in Bosnia
@selma
A fantastic spot to try Bosnian-specific Balkan food. As a Bosnian, I'm biased, but I definitely think Bosnian cuisine is some of the best! Be sure to try their Burek or Sirnica :)

CURATED BY
Selma Ducanovic is a young creative currently based in New York City. She and her parents immigrated to Seattle, Washington from Bosnia-Herzegovina when she was just two years old, but she's been back and forth between Europe and the United States all throughout her life in order to stay in touch with family since they are scattered across Bosnia, Croatia, Austria, Germany, The Netherlands, etc. However, don't be fooled! Selma and the rest of her family were not born to money; Growing up, her parents had prioritized staying in touch with extended family over getting shiny new things, each trip back to Europe always had to be budget-conscious, especially in the early days of her life. It wasn't until recently that she has been able to start splurging during her travels. Selma has also been lucky enough to have gotten scholarships during her time in college to travel to Australia, Haiti, Turkey, and Italy, as well as Los Angeles and Philadelphia.
