Autumn truly is the finest time to enjoy the untouched nature of Istria. Besides olive groves and vineyards, Istria also hides underground gastronomic gems – truffles. These fungi are known not only locally, but all over the world as well, and you should really taste truffle’s beautiful gastronomic nuances.
Restaurant Zigante is located in the heart of Istria in Livade – the world truffle center, near the Motovun forest. The restaurant offers delicious and original recipes made with truffles which will truly enchant your palate.
The rich menu of the restaurant offers a variety of gastronomic specialties, from beefsteak carpaccio to the Adriatic white fish fillet with fresh white truffles. One of this season’s specialties is certainly gnocchi made from potato dough and filled with white chocolate and truffles. The gnocchi need to be rolled in breadcrumbs and then browned in truffle butter. In the end, they are served with muscat sabayon – a delicious and warm truffle dessert.
To make this complete that gastronomic experience superb, the restaurant Zigante offers the perfect wine with each chosen specialty. Enjoy autumn scents and flavors and indulge in Zigante’s gastronomic harmony!
