We took part in a cooking class by Nikola and Goran. The location is a romantic olive tree garden with a small lodge adjusted for the cooking class. Nikola and Goran are both from completely different professional backgrounds but are true lovers of Istrian cuisine,...More

Wow! Where to begin? Nikola and Goran are amazing. Take one part Chef’s Table + one part Anthony Bordain’s “No Limits” and fill with rustic Eastern European charm, and you have EatIstria’s outdoor cooking class. We could not have been more pleased with our day....More

hi Karen - if you contact Goran he can answer all of these questions for you. He is the best at organizing these classes for you. It was totally worth every penny.
