Two friends originally from Bosnia have opened a small shop at 35 Elm Street in Montpelier. Neda Bikic and Tanja Vukoja launched Taste of Europe just more than a month ago to fill a need they saw in Vermont's Capital City for Eastern European fare.

Among their inventory are smoked meats, cheeses, candies, snacks, coffee, tea and pickled vegetables — and 14 different versions of ajvar, a roasted red pepper spread made with eggplant.

Cliff Mullen of Worcester, who came in recently to buy Milka chocolate and bags of corn-and-peanut curls called Smoki, said he and his German wife were pleased to find European favorites close to home.
