About the experience

Our most popular full day class is focused on making traditional Istrian pasta – fuži, which we normally serve with Istrian žgvacet, slow cooked stew made from chicken or beef. That is not set in stone – fuži can be paired with, for example, meat ragu, tomato salsa, even mushrooms or wild asparagus if they’re in season. Vegetarians and vegans, this can also be your class of choice! We also offer half-day classes where we skip market visit.

  • Guided tasting of premium Istrian extra virgin olive oils
  • Preparation of three-course Istrian traditional lunch (vegetable antipasto, pasta with stew, dessert)
  • One bottle of quality Istrian wine per person*
