In the very heart of Istria, lies the Motovun forest, a rich forest area that hides one of the most precious fruits of the country - truffles. There is Livade, small town that is home for ‘Days of Zigante Truffles’ a unique 10 weekend event.

During the fair, every autumn, from spetember till november, all guests are able to taste truffles and other tastes of Istrian specialties. We enjoyed in excellent cheese and truffle oil, as well as tartufata  and salami that  we took home as a souvenir.

Also, at the fair there were other Istrian producers  with their products, and we were so happy when we saw the Alden products  that every year, especially for Christmas Eve we enjoy in  their salt-cod paté (croatian bakalar na bjanko) wich is the best we ever tried.
