»If you really want to
understand this land, don't read books about it, have a good meal!« an old
farmer’s wife would say.
Our ancestors of course used the ingredients that they found nearby:
fresh fish, seasonal vegetables, fruit, fresh herbs and spices from their own
gardens or friends' and relatives' gardens.
It is this tradition that the local master chefs strive to preserve.
Their culinary art is a fusion of Mediterranean and Istrian cuisine that
strengthens one's health: with one of the best salts, some of the best olive
oil, world renown, ecologically farmed sea bass from the Fonda family,
excellent vegetables and tasty fruit from the Dragonja river valley.
It's not a coincidence then that connoisseurs from all over the world
have been flocking not only to our high-profile restaurants but also to many
small, inconspicuous countryside inns…
