2021 Istria, Croatia: Mark and I set double alarms to ensure we did not miss our opportunity to learn about truffles in Istria. We laced up our boots and met our Eat Istria guide, Goran. Hopping into his car, we headed north towards Motovun with great anticipation.
So begins Jean’s latest Food Adventure on Confident in the Kitchen: Truffles in Istria. We learn all about Istrian cuisine – olive oil, Boškarin beef, asparagus, wine, and of course truffles! We joined friend Miro and his two truffle-dogs, Bella and Leila, searching for truffles in the forest. Then Mirjana, Miro’s wife, treats us to some wonderful Istrian food.
The truffle hunt, along with an Istria wine tour, was organized by Goran at Eat Istria (pictured). Very knowledgeable, we highly recommend!
A great start to our stay in this part of Croatia.
