Gastronomy of Istria
Abundance leaves always enough room for fantasy, above all if we talk about gastronomy. If we talk about traditional gastronomy, we are referring to gastronomy of an awful lot of people, usually simple people, who could not boast "abundance" from times immemorial.
So they prepared meals from seasonal products, cultivated or found in nature, or they added plenty of ingredients
to essential foodstuff, available in their rural household. Sunday, as every other holiday or a banquet, was always
accompanied by the Istrian dried ham (homemade prosciutto or pršut) and cheese, served as a starter. The chicken
soup was followed by sauerkrauts, which was followed by fuži, gnocchi and ravioli.
Autumn time is for someone a period of sunset. In Istria this is the period of the aphrodisiac landmark, the world known
truffle. And when the winter time arrives, is there anything better than eating
Istrian "ombolo" and sausages by a fireplace and drinking supa (traditional red wine soup)!? A specialty added to foodstuff,
known for its quality and used since the ancient Roman times is olive oil.
