We love winter as long as we have cabbage!

When the temperature drops close to zero during a winter walk, it's time for frozen noses to turn red and hands to thaw, and where better to achieve this than in a tavern by the fireplace together with - Istrian cabbage!

As a side dish or on its own, sour and especially tasty with dry meat dishes, cabbage will satisfy even the most refined palates and warm even the most frozen. Therefore, hurry to a nearby tavern, restaurant or farm where the finest cabbage delicacies await you!

A delicious prelude to the cheerful period of December in central Istria is provided by menus in which sauerkraut plays the starring role.
