Istrian pršut is prepared in a special way. Today it is a protected food and its quality is recognised throughout the world.
A ham prepared in the Istrian way is first dried in the bura wind for at least six months covered in salt, pepper, garlic and other natural aromas. After drying in the wind it continues to dry in a closed, dark room for the next six to eight months.
Istrian pršut is the pride of all Istrians. It is served to all dear guests paired with homemade cow or sheep's cheese and olives. Thinly sliced slices of Istrian pršut are a true gastronomic pleasure.
