Every year the Istrian town of Novigrad prepares a series of themed culinary events under the common denominator – GnamGnam…

The name probably doesn’t require any further explanation, since everyone knows what is hidden behind this subtle onomatopoeia – something very delicious!

On 13 May 2016 this will be omega-3 rich bluefish and their most well-known representative – the PILCHARD. Incredibly healthy, nutritious, tasty and affordable, pilchards have fed generations of Mediterranean families, and they now return to the table in a number of imaginative combinations.

The May pilchard is of the highest quality, because, as the experts say, this is its season, and this is precisely why the Pilchard Festival is organised in the middle of May, so that visitors could enjoy pilchards when they’re the best.

And since the experience wouldn’t be complete without the fish swimming in olive oil and wine as well, the organisers have ensured that there is an abundance of autochthonous olive oils and local wines that can be enjoyed in organised tasting sessions.
