Tell me what you eat and I will tell you where you are from!

If we acknowledge the proverb »Tell me what you eat and I will tell you where you are from!« then our coastal area is without doubt juicy, colourful, tasty and diverse. Mediterranean cuisine is acknowledged as one of the healthiest diets and has surely left its mark on our northernmost location. Our local and natural produce, most notably salt, olives, fresh fruit and vegetables, rich wines and other tasty gifts of the sea and hinterland, combine well with a pinch of indigenous Mediterranean spices and fragrances. 

Together they create a rich Istrian cuisine which cunningly teases our tastebuds with seafood or meat. 

The central linking ingredient of the local cuisine is the salt from the local salt pans. This internationally recognised and appreciated local treasure enriches every food and is the constant element of both traditional cuisine and original culinary feats. The white sparkling crystals add a touch of local authenticity and can be used either as the base ingredient or as a prestigious additional element to unusual tasty combinations. 

Dance to the melody of discovering Mediterranean tastes and get to know the whole pallet of local culinary offerings – from the prestigious restaurants to the hinterland homesteads and traditional rural ‘osmice’.
