We received an invitation from Brseč to organize another private evening in a series! Although we traveled all over Istria, as well as a good part of Croatia, this was our first visit to this beautiful place.
The challenge was to organize a multi-course dinner for 8 people, 2 of whom are vegan. Read below what was deliciously eaten at this unforgettable dinner, and here are a few pictures to capture the atmosphere.
Private dinners menu
The host’s wish was a dinner for 8 people in 5 courses, including dessert. For 6 people, the host ordered a fish menu, and the remaining 2 people enjoyed vegan specialties.
The first course consisted of ceviche sea bass and smoked chlorophyll, zucchini carpaccio, citrus and olive oil emulsion. The second course consisted of oven-baked turmeric octopus arms and vegetable tempura. The third course consists of potato frittata (egg yolk, prosciutto, gamberi) and mushroom ragout. The last course was tuna cubes with side dishes and sunflower dumplings with peas and tomato.
The sugar ended up in an unforgettable dessert consisting of chocolate fudge with ice cream and white chocolate, black pancakes, chocolate and almond ice cream.
Private dinning in the Croatia
Istria Cooking organizes private dinners for local and foreign guests regardless of the menu and number of guests. We are mostly invited to cook in holiday homes, villas and yachts, but we do them regardless of location throughout Croatia.
We adapt the menu completely to your wishes, and we can offer you local (Istrian, continental, Mediterranean, etc.) and international cuisine (Asian, Italian, etc.) and special diets regimes in the form of vegan and vegetarian specialties, plant-based, halal, kosher …
Istria Cooking offers you probably the best way to get to know beautiful Istria, and that is through gastronomy. In addition to seeing how the locals live, you will discover that this region has the best olive oil in the world, as well as fantastic wine, cheese and truffles.
