About the experience

We meet at the Pula city center and visit the green market for the best daily offer. Then we head for our family farm – Scuola, where we prepare the most popular pasta for this class, notably fuži and pljukanci, which we normally serve with another local delicacy - žgvacet, a slow-cooked chicken or beef stew. However, it may also be served with mushrooms, homemade sausages, tomato salsa, or our personal favorite, wild asparagus - whatever suits your fancy and is available at the green market. Scuola is our cooking studio with a maximum capacity of 15 people. It is in Goran’s olive grove, 15 minutes away from Pula by car. In case of bad weather or in cold months, the capacity is maximum 6 people. This class is 6 hours long.

Some agencies will let you pick among several pick-up locations or pick you at the specific location of your own choice (e.g. your apartment). This is why they have your phone number and you have theirs - so you can easily arrange this over the phone.

With us, you will enjoy the authentic homely atmosphere of our cooking studio, where we brunch, sip wine, prepare all the dishes from scratch and enjoy the fruits of our labour in the shade of olive trees. End it all chatting alongside some coffee or grappa, just like Istrians do.
