Zigante Truffle Days 2015 – International Gourmet Expo

ztdAn event not to miss for lovers of the king of Istrian cuisine – truffles…

In the heart of the Motovun forest, one of the most important areas for harvesting the white truffle in Istria, Zigante Truffle Days 2015 International Gourmet Expo will be held over 7 weekends during 20 September – 1 November.

Apart from having the opportunity to explore and taste truffles, visitors will be treated to a host of various events during the festival, including, an exhibition of truffles, educational discussions, and truffle cooking demonstrations from top chefs. Held over seven weekends, visitors from all over Croatia, Slovenia, Italy, Germany, Austria and as far as Japan, are again expected to attend this unique event.

Besides truffles, Istrian wine, olive oil, cheeses, honey, brandy-herb and other traditional products will be available. The white Istrian truffle is most frequent and its discovery and classification took place around 1930. After 1945, the truffle arrived on the market through state-owned companies. Since 1990, the Zigante family began commercialising truffles.
