Until November 17, 2019: The Istrian Truffle Days

Truffle specialties
Fresh truffles from Istria / Livade
Normally, Livade would be a small, insignificant village in the Istrian hinterland, if not, many years ago, a certain Giancarlo Zigante would have found the largest white truffle worldwide and thus founded his truffle empire. ”Zigante Tartufi‟ as it is called officially, has made a name for itself in gourmet circles all over the world and therefore, almost inseparably connected, made Istria famous as a well-known gourmet destination.

Once a year, just in time for the truffle harvest, a somewhat different kind of event offers the opportunity to taste the fine products associated with this delicious delicacy. Skippers traveling home from the southern regions should definitely take a detour to Livade – a detour that is definitely worthwhile.

Finding the rather sleepy village of Livade should not be a problem thanks to the good transport links via the highway towards Koper, and discovering the truffle-related activities in Livade needs no further description. Thanks to the manageable size of the town, you will find your way around at first glance.

During the Truffle Days, i.e. at the weekends on Saturday and Sunday, a huge exhibition tent offers every conceivable product related to the black and white gold of Istria for tasting and purchase, from mundane truffle chips to truffle salami, truffle chocolate, truffle cheese, truffle jam and truffle oil and, of course, black and white truffles. Mind you, the list cannot be exhaustive for reasons of space alone. On the occasion of Livade’s Truffle Days, however, there is the opportunity to taste small quantities of truffle products, because many things that are called truffles do not necessarily taste good to everyone.

There is also the chance to take part in a truffle hunt (12:00, 14:00, 16:00 on Saturdays and Sundays) or to browse one of the many stalls lining the street. Here you can find everything from handmade souvenirs to juicy mandarins from the Nevretva Valley.

SeaHelp tip:
Buy fresh truffles, truffle paste and truffle oil. Freeze the cleaned truffles in soft butter as quickly as possible. Pour over the hot pasta together with the frozen butter, truffle paste and truffle oil or boil briefly with cream – and you have a delicious Christmas menu.
