Croatia (just like the entire Central European region) has a colorful and complex history which is reflected in its food and wine traditions. Its landscape, climate, history, cooking, and wines change dramatically from region to region. This trip will focus on the capital, Zagreb, and the Istrian peninsula, considered to be the gourmet capital of the country.
We’ll taste the bounty that this region has to offer, eat more truffles and olive oil than you thought possible, and meet the people who produce it all. Croatia is also one of the region’s up-and-coming wine producing countries, and we’ll visit several of these winemakers who are making waves, and taste plenty of the local wine—Malvazia and Terran.
An insider’s adventure in food. Come experience it with Zingerman’s. September 18-26, 2017.
