The April tour was very oversold in 10 days and was an incredible success so we decided to offer one more tour before our return to the US. A one week trip to the Istrian Peninsula of Croatia including all lodging, meals*, tours, cooking and nutrition classes!
Here are a sampling of testimonials from the April tour:
“It was a trip of a lifetime!”
“Outstanding meals in special and unique settings!”
“If I planned my dream vacation it would have looked a lot like this.”
“Amazing tour: very well organized, well planned, very knowledgable guide.”
“It is impossible to decide my favorite part of the tour, everyday I think I find a new favorite.”
“We loved the food, food, food. It felt very authentic and we love the off the beaten path places where we were able to meet the families and chefs.”
“Knowledgable and welcoming guides, tour operators and tour leaders! Simply Outstanding.”
“There was no way I would have ever experienced these meals and views and methods of cooking.”
“Thank you so much for organizing the most incredible tour. I cannot imagine better food, sights and group of individuals. This was truly a once in a lifetime opportunity.”
“This was so beyond my expectations and more than appreciated. What an incredible value.”
“I loved it 200%. I am so happy I came.”
Early last year our family relocated to Rovinj, Croatia, just across the Adriatic Sea from Venice, Italy. It is a small, romantic, thousand year old fishing village that is the most photographed spot in Croatia and one of the most beautiful small towns on the entire Mediterranean.
After we arrived I immediately connected with the local food community. Incredible people serving amazingly fresh caught seafood, farm-raised meats and hand crafted cheeses, the finest olive oil in the world, world-class wine, and, of course, truffles. This tour has been crafted through my relationships with local chefs and farmers. It’s one of a kind authentic experience that would not be possible as a typical tourist. We will be eating classical dishes in local taverns and farms. I absolutely love it here and know you’ll love it too!
The dates for our week-long culinary tour are September 25-October 1, 2017
Together we will experience:
Guided tours of the postcard-like Istrian towns of Rovinj, Montovan, Porec, Pula, and Groznjan, dotting the Tuscany-like rolling hills of the area
The regions best “off the beaten path” farm to table restaurants and rustic farm-based restaurants where we’ll eat amazing, regional cuisine, prepared in age-old fashion
Visits to incredible Roman ruins, including one of the most well-preserved amphitheaters in the world.
Tours of the area’s finest wineries and an olive oil farm named in 2016 as the finest producer in the world.
Truffle hunting demonstration in the Motovun area where the largest white truffle in the world was found.
A boat tour of the dazzling coastline and on-board picnic lunch with traditional music
Lodging in beautiful Four-Star hotel accommodations
Informative Jennifer-led cooking class
Education – ask Author and Professor Jennifer Adler specific nutrition questions to help you on your journey to better health
Because coastal Istria (Rovinj) has only recently being discovered – Rick Steves names it “a little Venice on a hill”, and “one of my favorite small towns in the Mediterranean” – it’s still super affordable.
