A food festival celebrating the treasures of Croatian truffles, taking place over ten weekends
Marvel at the finds of this year's truffle hunting season and celebrate this ancient and elusive delicacy within an area famed for such. One of the most prestigious ingredients of world gastronomy, truffles are a commonplace ingredient of Istrian cooking, available on the menu year-round at many of the regions specialised restaurants. At Truffle Days, the whole of Istria's truffle culture is condensed into one event, so here you can learn all about truffles as well as sample dishes and products which use both the black and white variety, both of which are sourced within eyesight of the event's site. Regular dishes such as pasta dishes will delight, others such as truffle flavoured ice cream might come as more of a surprise, as will some of the prices reached at the auction of particularly grand specimens.
