Truffles – a True Croatian Treat!

The foodie scene in Croatia is a lot of scrumptious fun, with superb wines and fresh local cuisine quite easy to access (if you know our insider secrets)

Probably, the most decadent delicious fun to be had is with the amazing unrivaled fresh truffles in Istria, the northwesternmost part of Croatia.

Travelers will find ample opportunity to order dishes that include truffles in many restaurants while visiting Croatia or Slovenia. 

An exceptional experience to plan ahead for is to go with a locally licensed truffle hunter into the hazelnut oak woods, with the hunter’s dog, specially trained and skilled at sniffing out the highly treasured tubers.  Our guests always rave about this adventure, learning so much about this rare delicacy, with someone who has been passed the knowledge generation to generation.

If a tromp in the woods isn’t what you have in mind for your vacation, you can still enjoy consuming the truffles while there.  Throughout the country, you will also find many truffle products that you may purchase, easily pack, and bring home as gifts or for a reminiscent meal.  These food products include the whole truffle in brine. sliced in olive oil, in salt, truffle pate, truffle honey, olive oil with truffle flavor, truffles and mushrooms or truffles and olives in jars, in cheese, and even in sausage.  We love all of these specialized Croatian products!!

Be sure to let us know if you want to include truffle hunting with one of our local experts during our itinerary planning process.  A little luxury and a memory for a lifetime!!
