Gastronomic event

Gurmands will have an opportunity to savour delicious sea morsels at the first Days of seashells.

Restaurants will offer imaginative menus with a minimum of four shell-based dishes at favourable prices! The culinary delicacies will be paired with premium local wines and olive oils this region is renowned for far and wide.

Istrian shells - scallops, mussels, sea truffles, Noah’s arks, queen scallops and oysters have a special flavour owing to clean sea. They are brought to the plate both wild-grown and cultivated. The shell cultivation tradition can be traced back to antiquity and scallops are most frequently harvested from the waters off the west coast of Istria, in the vicinity of a fresh water source, primarily at the estuary of the river of Mirna, known for premium samples.
