Surrender yourself to the flavour of local cuisine

Category

We would like to invite you to join us in exploring the tastes of Izola. We are preparing four diverse culinary campaigns, which will take place from the beginning of June until the end of the year. In addition to the campaigns, you will be able to purchase delicious, fresh fruit and vegetables at the local farmers' market »Ruba sz moje njive« every Wednesday and Saturday until the end of September.  

Taste the summer during Days of local mussels

This year's culinary campaigns begin with Days of local mussels, the aroma of which will charm you from June 6th until June 20th. As many as 21 participating restaurateurs in Izola will welcome you to the pleasant ambiance of their inns and restaurants.

Mussels are the best-known and readily available seafood. They are most often prepared “à la buzara” and as such represent the simplest dish with mussels. In the company of quality olive oil, white wine, parsley, garlic and, if desired, breadcrumbs, they become a delicious meal to which we usually add only bread. During the Days of local mussels, you will taste other mussel-based dishes and thus get to know the culinary imagination of the chefs in Izola. The local suppliers Mytilus and Prosub will make sure the mussels on the plates are always fresh and tasty.

September in the spirit of cod

The second Saturday in September, September 12th to be precise, will be marked by the beginning of Days of Cod, which will delight you until September 27th. In the past, cod was usually served as a festive dish during Lent before Christmas or Easter holidays, but nowadays the popular fish spread has taken on many forms and has become indispensable in our local restaurants as part of Istrian cuisine.

Warm yourself up with bobiči stew

During the time of baby corn, bobiči (corn stew) appear on Istrian plate. Corn can be stored and used during the winter as well. Bobiči are undoubtedly the richest Istrian traditional dish eaten with a spoon, which pleasantly warms us up and gives us strength. After last year’s successful event “Bobičijada”, which took place in the village of Korte, we decided to dedicate a few more days to this popular Istrian stew and organize Days of corn stew (bobiči). Bobiči will keep you warm from October 24th until November 8th.

Welcome to the kingdom of fish

Towards the end of the year we will invite you to join us in the kingdom of fish. The Days of the kingdom of fish aren’t only a gastronomic experience but also a tribute to the tradition of fishing, which has been one the most important element in the development of the town as we know it. You will be able to experience the guidelines “From sea to plate”, which is the motto of the Kilometre Zero initiative, during Days of the kingdom of fish from November 28th until December 13th.

Kilometre Zero – a guarantee for locally-sourced food

All the culinary campaigns are inextricably linked to the Kilometer Zero initiative, which is a guarantee that you’re tasting dishes made with fresh, locally-sourced ingredients. By taking part in the initiative, restaurateurs are committed to providing at least 80 % of input ingredients from the local environment. A vital part of the initiative is also the local farmers’ market “Ruba sz moje njive” (Stuff from my field), whose particularity is that you’ll only find fruit and vegetables from local farmers. At the market you can fill your basket with rural produce every Wednesday and Saturday between 8 am and 1pm until the end of September. This way, you’ll make sure you always eat quality vegetables, while also supporting local food suppliers.
