Husband and wife Chris and Ana-Maria are the team behind Taste Croatia offering a tempting range of truffle, olive oil and sweet products from Istria - a region of Croatia which is famous for its exceptional cuisine.
Among the exciting array of delicacies, which are made by local Croatian producers with the utmost care for the environment, are truffle pastes, pates and oils including truffle paste with mushrooms and olives, and olive oil with white truffle.
Unusual sweet items include high quality fig jam with 82% fruit content, and honey made with mixed nuts and apricots. They also offer traditional fig cakes and fig balls – Smokvenjak – which are 100% natural, containing only figs, lemon juice, almonds, herbs and raisins. They are ideal as a high-energy natural snack (recently used by the Croatian female expedition team in their quest to conquer Mount Everest) and extremely versatile as a cooking ingredient.
