We meet at Pula green market at 9 am or 10am to find ingredients for the original Istrian dish - Labinski krafi. Then we head to Scuola (our cooking studio). Krafi is ravioli-like pasta that originates from east Istrian town of Labin and is hard to find it even in local restaurants - that's how authentic it is! In Istria, we traditionally make it on holidays, such as Christmas. Famous for cheese-based filling, accompanied by an unusual combination of condiments including vanilla, nutmeg, lemon zest and raisins, this magnificent dish is somewhere halfway between a sweet and a savoury one. For this class we make them savoury, accompanied by žgvacet, typical Istrian stew. Another option is to make krafi with another local gem, padela-style meat, half sauteed, half fried in rich, thick sauce.
If you think you might have trouble finding the exact location, do not worry. Upon booking confirmation we will deliver exact coordinates to your email address. In your voucher you will receive instructions on how to reach the location correctly, as well (if provided by the host). 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.

Our cooking classes are performed in our family farm - between Medulin and Ližnjan, in the southeast Istria. A small house hiding between olive trees is the origin of all my devotion to genuine food and wine. The main reason why I founded EatIstria in 2012. Here my grandmother Ana lived a true and hard peasant life.
