White Truffle Season:
At the end of September in Istria began the hunting season on white truffle, "His Majesty of Istria," as it is affectionately known. Also called the Istrian forest gold, white truffle is the king of Labin table in autumn and winter. One of the larger sites of the white tuber with a strong characteristic odour enjoyed in this area ever since the ancient Romans, is Čepić field near Labin.
In almost all Labin and Rabac restaurants you can taste numerous specialties with white truffle which is one of the finest and most expensive truffles. Beefsteak with truffles, truffles with homemade fuži, gnocchi or pljukanci (home-made pasta), ice cream with white truffle and local olive oil, salads with truffle-your palate is to choose. Sit at the traditional Istrian open fireplace ognjišće and enjoy other autumn pumpkin and chestnuts fruits with inevitable Istrian prosciutto, sausages and pork loin and a wide range of top-quality Labin and Istrian wines.
