Mmmm, the irresistible flavours of authentic Krk gastronomy... Enjoy your holiday with all the senses and indulge in amazing culinary delights for a complete holiday experience on the island. After all, these delicacies are truly unique products of the island and its natural environment.
Nibble on some sheep cheese, possibly enriched with native herbs, and a slice or two of prosciutto. Have a mouthwatering meal made with local lamb meat. All of which are authentic products of the specific microclimate of the island and traditional cuisine. Other widely recognizable features of Krk gastronomy include presnac cake and šurlice. The latter is a type of pasta made according to a recipe passed on from one generation to another.
Within the regional cuisine of the island there are specific local specialties as well. For example, žlahtina wine from the Vrbnik area beautifully complements traditional food. Similarly, the Malinska-Dubašnica area contributes high-quality fish and seafood, prepared with native herbs and premium olive oil.
Pure gold of Krk gastronomy! Not only is locally produced olive oil a healthy ingredient, but it has been registered as 'protected designation of origin' and 'protected geographical indication'. The distinctive award-winning olive oil results from a centuries-old tradition. Also, the olive groves, especially in Malinska-Dubašnica, add a special touch to the landscape.
Delight in delicious feasts on the island all year round! There are a number of gastronomical events taking place throughout the year. Not only do they give you a great opportunity to sample the very best of Krk gastronomy, both in traditional and modern interpretations, but they also include exciting entertainment programmes you won't want to miss.
For example, Krk Food Fest lasts a few weeks in spring and autumn. Restaurants across the island take part and offer delicious meals using seasonal ingredients. Therefore, your palate will love the specialties during the Days of Asparagus and Lamb in April and May. Staying with Contessa Villas, you can have a lovely lunch or dinner arranged at the exclusive Mulino restaurant.
