  • Truffle Days in Istria

    09.09.2017 - 19.11.2017

    Buzet, Motovun, Livade

    The truffle is the supreme delicacy that had been enjoyed by the Mesopotamian rulers 4000 years ago, and it is still one of the most prestigious foodstuffs in world gastronomy. This intense flavour royal mushroom was known to the ancient Greeks and the Roman emperors, and it was also served at the French court and among the Austro-Hungarian aristocracy. It is very rare and it grows only in several locations in Europe - in some parts of France and Italy and in Istria, favoured by mild climate, small temperature variations and grey clay soil.

    The white and the black truffles have their natural habitat in the Istrian truffle 'Bermuda' triangle between Pazin, Buje and Buzet, especially in the valley of the river Mirna and in the Motovun Forest. They grow underground, and they are searched after by specially trained dogs.

    October is the top season of the white truffles, which are also the most expensive and the most valuable truffles. At that time, numerous events are held every weekend to celebrate this indisputable king of mushrooms in Livade, the well-known truffles centre near Motovun. But, even before and after this period, throughout most of the autumn, Istria lives in the rhythm of truffles with the abundance of festivities dedicated to this noble mushroom.

    The guests that come from the whole region are presented with the typical truffle dishes: fuži, pljukanci, gnocchi, fritada and various meat combinations. There are also many exhibitions and fairs, with plenty of excellent opportunities to meet the world of this magic, aromatic tuber known for its aphrodisiac features.

    When Istria is taken over by autumn tones, its landscapes gleam in hundreds of shades of yellow, orange and red. From the top of the hill, this autumn patchwork is watching majestically over by Motovun, a medieval town overlooking the Motovun forest, the River Mirna and its stunning valley.

    In October, a one-day exhibition and tasting of Teran wine and truffles Is held here.

    Teran is an old Istrian variety, which dominated the Istrian peninsula around a hundred years ago and was first mentioned 600 years ago. Due to its strong and robust flavour, the autochthonous Istrian wine is delightful served with prosciutto, cheese and meat and game based dishes, while its ruby red colour perfectly blends with the autumn colours of Istria.
    Besides Teran, the equal star of the festival is the truffle, an underground Istrian treasure without which today’s gourmand cuisine would be unimaginable.

    The Festival brings together Istrian producers of Teran who want to give it the importance it deserves so that the culinary experience is complete with truffle dishes, of course, with emphasis on those that are best paired with Teran.
