Deep under the Earth’s skin people have found precious stones. Their rarity, beauty and structure made them valuable almost beyond measure. They present wealth, power, and sometimes sadly, love. Diamonds might be forever, they might be girl’s best friends, but in the end, diamonds are just shiny rocks.
Earth hides gems much more valuable than precious stones, at least to anybody who knows how to really enjoy life.
As a caring mother she is, Earth didn’t hide those other gems so deep. All you need to find them is help from well-trained man’s best friend or an animal with sense of smell so strong we can’t even dream about it.
Obviously, animals aren’t able to recognize scents of diamonds, so what kind of gems are we talking about?
Well, we aren’t talking about actual gems, the treasure we are talking about looks kinda like gems, but tastes billion times better.
Where are tasty gems hidden?
Istria is blessed in so many ways. Sea, history, beautiful towns and marvelous nature. That nature hides a lot of secrets. One of them you can taste in many Istrian restaurants.
We won’t keep you waiting anymore, the gems we are talking about are Istrian truffles.
In the forests around Buzet – famous truffle town – nature plays a game of hide and seek with skilled truffle hunters and their four-legged companions.
Deep in the moist, grey forest cut by river Mirna Istrians discovered black and white truffles.
Quality of Istrian truffles is among the best in the world and that’s why so many food lovers are visiting Istria every year. In combination with other top quality ingredients truffles are on top of many favorite food lists. If you have ever tasted them you are now nodding your head with confirmation and biting your lips out of desire. A desire for the overwhelming taste of those mushrooms.
