From 10.02. - 23.03.2014. gourmands will have an opportunity to savour delicious sea morsels at the Days of seashells organized by the tourist boards of Umag, Novigrad, Brtonigla and Buje on the territory of north-western Istria.

Restaurants will offer imaginative menus at favourable prices! The culinary delicacies will be paired with premium local wines and olive oils this region is renowned for far and wide.

Istrian shells - scallops, mussels, sea truffles, Noah’s arks, queen scallops and oysters have a special flavour owing to clean sea. They are brought to the plate both wild-grown and cultivated. The shell cultivation tradition can be traced back to antiquity and scallops are most frequently harvested from the waters off the west coast of Istria, in the vicinity of a fresh water source, primarily at the estuary of the river of Mirna, known for premium samples.



They are best during winter, and whichever recipe you choose, you can’t go wrong. In stewed savoury sauce seasoned with classical spices like garlic and parsley, tomatoes, olive oil and white wine, with homemade pasta, in risottos, oven baked, grilled or in sophisticated modern combinations.

Days of seashells are an excellent occasion to visit north-western Istria in February, especially on St. Valentine’s day!
