Två artiklar om vin och mat i Kroatien

Catavino LogoRåkade hitta två artiklar om mat och vin i Kroatien skrivna av det amerikanska paret Gabriella och Ryan Opaz. De bor i Barcelona men skriver om vin och mat lite var stans ifrån (men mest Spanien och Portugal):

Some incredible Croatian foods that we hope you’ll have an opportunity to try one day. So let’s begin with the wide range of cured meats and cheeses gracing Croatia’s menus. […] We also discovered their homemade salamies; a slightly sweet boiled ham called Kuhana šunka; a spicy pork sausage from Turopolje called Češnjovka, infused with garlic and paprika; a thick and flavorful pancetta called, Špek; and let’s not forget Pršut.

The Malvazija Istriana (or Malvasia) was by far one of our personal favorites! Once thought to be a relative of Malvasia (or Malmasy), which produces a sweeter style wine, Malvazija Istriana is a separate variety and shows its best when dry. Grown in Istria, along the Adriatic, it’s heaven in a bottle! We tasted amazing late harvest examples of this grape, not to mention big, bold austere whites that expressed amazing mature white fruit, minerals, dark spices and Mediterranean herbs such as oregano and sage.

Kanske kan ge lite inspiration till att komma på vår vin-, mat- och tryffelresa till Istrien i Kroatien i höst!
