Captivating Croatia’s chef led tours gives the other guests the added value of a culinary masters’ perspective and input. With this tour, Chef Asha will bring her years of training in the culinary arts to “the table” and offer a unique experience that other tours can’t offer. Guests will experience an almost all-inclusive vacation where they will get to interact, explore, cook, drink, eat and learn with Chef Asha for 8 days and even take part in several cooking classes and workshops. In addition to the above, guests will experience numerous other excursions including, truffle hunting, winery visits and tastings, and much more!
Our home base for much of this tour is the Istria area of Croatia, which is in the Northern part of Croatia and is very close to Italy. This peninsula area is known as the Tuscany of Croatia. Istria simply soothes the soul with captivating and compelling scenery which is only enhanced by the amazing food and wines of the area. Truffles, meats, cheese and wine dominate the culinary landscape. The tour will offer an intimate behind the scenes experience, featuring lavish backdrops and breathtaking landscapes that rival those anywhere else in the world. The tour focuses on delicious local foods, wines, and the amazing history and sights in and around this area.
