Culinary & Cultural Tour of Croatia with Jennifer Adler

A one-time only, all-inclusive, one week trip to Rovinj and the Istrian Peninsula of Croatia including all lodging, meals, tours, cooking and nutrition classes!

Early last year our family relocated to Rovinj, Croatia, just across the Adriatic from Venice, Italy.  Rovinj 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 is one of a kind authentic experience that would not be possible as a tourist. We will be eating classical dishes in local taverns and farms, and I will be spending time with the group answering nutrition questions throughout the trip. I absolutely love it here and knew you’d love it too!


The dates for our week-long culinary tour are April 24-30, 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

  • Incredible Roman ruins, including one of the most well-preserved amphitheaters anywhere

  • The area’s finest wineries and an olive oil farm named in 2016 as the finest producer in the world

  • A truffle hunting demonstration and truffle sampling

  • A boat tour of the dazzling coastline and on-board picnic

  • Stay in beautiful Four-Star hotel accommodations

  • Enjoy a Jennifer-led cooking class as well as other cooking classes by local chefs

  • Access to ask Jennifer nutrition questions

Because 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.

Linda Konner (my agent and yours, I’m assuming) just sent me your trip information. If I weren’t already booked to go to Ireland this spring, I would definitely do this with you!
Please add me to your list for future adventures.

This is exactly the kind of trip I’d like to enjoy.
So sorry I have plans for those dates.
I’d like to be on your mailing list.

Hi Jennifer, my husband Ken and I were clients of yours. Congrats on your move to Croatia. I was in Split and Dubrovnik last year. What a wonderful country! This April won’t work for us, but would love to come over on one of your tours in the future. Please keep us on your mailing list.

Hi Jennifer,
I was one of your student at Bastyr University and loved your class. Today somehow I came across your Croatia cultural and culinary tour. I would like to know if it would be still possible to sign up for your tour, I wish I had seen the post earlier.
Last time I saw you was at Bastyr when you talked about your Book, Passionate Nutrition and you were expecting your baby.
Congratulation on your baby girl! What a great news!
Please add me to your mailing list for future adventures you might organize.
