Croatia Culinary Tour with Jennifer Adler 

Author of Passionate Nutrition

Due to overwhelming response I have decided to offer a second tour of the Spring 2020 Croatia Culinary Tour with Jennifer Adler.  Dates for this tour will be April 19 – 25, 2020.

This trip will be identical to the tour previously announced, a one week tour of the Istrian Peninsula of Croatia including all lodging, meals, tours, cooking and nutrition classes.  And again, this tour will be held from April 19-25, 2020.

A sampling of testimonials from previous Culinary Tour attendees:
“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.”

“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.”

The activities were all extremely noteworthy and left me with the feeling of being on a travel channel show.”

“This was so beyond my expectations and more than appreciated. What an incredible value.”

“I loved it 200%. I am so happy I came.”

My family and I recently spent a year in Croatia and made very special connections with local natural food community.  This tour has been crafted through my close relationships with local Croatian chefs and farmers and are hand-selected, one of a kind authentic experiences that would not be possible as a typical tourist.   You’ll meet 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. All served to us as we’re surrounded by stunning natural beauty and up-close ancient Roman, Italian, and Croatian, history.

Enjoy the best of “Agro Tourism” as we enjoy classical dishes in local taverns and farms. I absolutely love these places!

Coastal Istria was recently named one of the 50 Places You Must See!

The norther section of Croatia, coastal Istria (Rovinj), has only recently been discovered by travel writers. Rick Steves calls Rovinj “a little Venice on a hill” and “one of my favorite small towns in the Mediterranean.” Yet, in spite of these accolades, Croatia remains very affordable.

This all-inclusive tour includes accommodations, transportation, meals, cooking class, nutrition Q & A, boat tour, entrance and guide fees, and is priced at $1680*. Space is limited so please secure your spot with a $500 deposit. The balance of payment is due by February 19th, 2020.

*Not included are airfare, airport transfers and beverages (unless specified in itinerary). Prices are based on double occupancy. Single occupancy price is increased by $400 and based on availability.

Please note that on past trips most people have chosen to fly into Venice. In the past I have helped with organizing group transportation from/to the airport and am available to do so on this tour as well.

If you’re interested in this trip please email: to receive the fully detailed itinerary and additional travel planning information.

I can’t wait to see you this April in Croatia!
