Bobiči (a type of corn minestrone) is a typical Istrian dish, best prepared by our mothers and grandmothers who learned the Istrian recipes from their mothers and grandmothers. This way, the culinary tradition was passed down from generation to generation. Jasna Cokan and Nevija Šalkovič, two local women from the hinterland of Izola and members of the Cultural Society Malija, revealed to us their secrets of making authentic traditional Istrian Bobiči. There are quite a few differences between corn minestrone and Istrian Bobiči. Read the following post to avoid confusion and recognize the real Bobiči.

Fill your basket with wholesome food
The most beautiful and flowering month is back. In May, Izola enriches its offer with the farmer's market “Ruba sz moje njive” (Stuff from my field), which allows us to fill our baskets with locally grown fruit, vegetables and other home-grown delicacies from the hinterland of Izola.This year, spring hasn’t only brought us longer days and awakening nature but also some changes that encouraged us to modify our way of living. Due to various restrictions, networking at the local level and self-supply have grown very strong and our shopping habits have changed. While the world was on hold, it was the local farmers who supplied us with wholesome food. This practice will continue, so we kindly invite you to cultivate the new shopping routine and visit the local farmer’s market “Ruba sz moje njive” after having had your morning coffee.
