Baškot is a typical double toasted or a fresh bread product (type of a bun) in a shape of a ring brought to Bakar by fishermen from Chioggia. The fishermen carried them instead of the bread to longer fishing trips. Baškoti could last up to six months due to their dryness. They were often eaten with all liquids available on the ship (wine, tea, water), although baškot was traditionally dipped into red wine. Baškot’s quality was determined by dropping it from a certain height to see if it would break. Baškot that broke in the most pieces was better. Today Baškot has become the protective sign of Bakar, and it had been chosen as an official souvenir of Bakar.
