All the ingredients except the wine to put in a flat round tray and put under the  iron bell on  fireplace, and left an hour under the embers. After an hour of baking, stir the octopus and potatoes and add a decilitre white wine, cover the cripnja again, and let it bake on the embers for another half hour.
Additional advice for the preparation of the octopus: If you have a fresh octopus it is best to freeze for a day, because then the octopus will be softer.  Serve the Peka preferably  with homemade bread, and typical dessert prepared in Dalmatian the rožata.    Enjoy!
