Description

Discover the mysterious world of the pearl of Istria. Go truffle hunting with a professional hunter and his dog. Get to know the recipe for the best dish with truffles. Istrian pasta “fuži” with truffles, a glass of excellent Istrian malvasia wine, good company … priceless! The greatest chefs highly value the Istrian truffle. It is one of the most expensive culinary ingredients. Let's get to know its secrets: how it is searched for, why they use dogs for hunting and how they are trained, what varieties of truffles we know, what else truffles are used for, why the price is sky-high, the history of (forbidden) hunting in Istria and other facts about truffles. After the hunt, we will cook a typical dish with truffles (Istrian pasta “fuži”) and find out which secret ingredient is in the recipe that makes the dish so exceptional. We will eat what we cooked and enjoy it with excellent local Malvasia wine. We will also learn how to recognize a meal with real truffles and not with its artificial aromas. Most of all, we will enjoy good company under the pergola of the Istrian homestead.
