CULINARY SPECIALTIES

Black Risotto 
Known locally as crni rižot, this is made with cuttlefish or squid, olive oil, garlic, red wine and squid ink, which gives an intense seafood flavour and black colour.

Boškarin
The white-grey, long-horned Istrian oxen are a gourmet delicacy. Boškarin is served at top restaurants and konobas (taverns) in a variety of ways, including as carpaccio; in savoury sauce with pasta or gnocchi; as salami or steak.

Olive oil
Croatian olive oils received nine awards at the 2016 New York International Olive Oil Convention, six of which were from Istria.

Truffles
Istria’s Motovun forests contain some of the highest concentrations of truffles in the world.

Fritule
Commonly found on the Adriatic coast, these donut-like fried pastries vary from region to region. Traditionally served during the holidays, these are popular and highly addictive, so you can usually find them year-round.

Fuži and pljukanci
Fuži is quill-shaped homemade pasta made by cutting 5 x 5cm squares and wrapping each piece around the handle of a wooden spoon. It is often served with a truffle cream sauce or mild red sauces including beef, boškarin, chicken, rooster or wild game. Istrians also love chewy, hand-rolled pljukanci – this is pasta that resembles the shape of green beans – and njoki (gnocchi).

AND DRINK...

Malvazija and Teran

Istria’s signature wine varieties are Malvazija and Teran. Malvazija, an easy-drinking white wine with good minerality and apricot and apple notes, pairs well with seafood dishes. Teran, a robust red, goes well with meat dishes including boškarin and pršut.


Drink rakija

A distilled spirit made from fruit, rakija is part of Croatian culture and a symbol of hospitality. It is customary to have a glass before and/or after your meal, and to look your fellow drinkers in the eye, clink glasses, and consume the entire shot at once.
 

The closest airports



The closest city to Hvar island with an international airport is Split

A Croatian island to Europe direct – welcome to Brač!
