ALONG ROUTE 44
A special road that leads the famed truffle forests of Istria, Croatia. A road well travelled over my lifetime with visits to this culinary heartland of Istria. I have fond memories of all seasons but autumn is my favourite. Plump grapes sit heavy on vines, fig trees with their low branches invite me to reach their ripened sun-kissed fruit, the sweet smell of linden trees swirl in the air, the famed river Mirna wraps herself around a magical forest feeding life to its inhabitants both above and below the surface. Family always welcomes me at their doorsteps with the aroma of truffles wafting out from their open windows. I cannot wait to return. You are welcome to join me as I take a small group to explore a culinary and cultural bucketlist of the very best places to see in Istria this September 2024.
