    Gastronomic event dedicated to asparagus

    During March, April and May, the 10th Days of Istrian Asparagus will give true "asparagus lovers" an opportunity to relish in imaginative, delicious and fragrant delicacies made from Istrian wild asparagus, ranging from the renowned "fritaja" (omelettes), soups, homemade pastas and risottos to ingenious combinations with meat and fish and scrumptious desserts.

    Asparagus is one of the most appreciated wild plant varieties growing in Istria, picked from mid March to late April. Since it grows in less accessible places, often protected by thorny bushes, its picking requires eye of a hawk, iron will and not being afraid of an occasional scratch.

    Food, medicine, aphrodisiac....It's no wonder that we dedicated an entire manifestation to this plant.
    Asparagus lovers don't miss the Days of Istrian Asparagus!

    Days of asparagus and cuttlefish

    Asparagus (called šparuge in the Istrian dialect) are known as the queen of Istrian forests and covert and the main ingredient of spring menu: from classic scrambled eggs (fritaja), traditional meat delicacies such as istrian prosciutto with homemade pasta – pljukanci or fuži, to modern snacks – muffins with asparagus. Adriatic cuttlefish is caught in late winter and early spring, near a rocky coast, and the most famous specialty in the black cuttlefish risotto.
