Following on from the recent news that Istria has again been named the best region in the world for virgin olive oil by the most prestigious guide Flos Olei, the town of Vodnjan north of Pula is hosting its annual festival celebrating this liquid green gold.
Now in its 17th edition, ISTRAVIRGIN dedicates three days to the growers and producers who have made olive oil such a successful local industry.
From November 24 to 26, as well as showcasing the new harvest, ISTRAVIRGIN gathers gastronomic experts, writers and bloggers for culinary masterclasses, cooking shows in a real kitchen and demonstrations presenting the uses and versatility of this premium product, exalted by the Romans and revived over the last two decades or more.
