Saturday April 24, 6 - 7pm
At a time when we can only still but dream of travel, join us on a gourmet escape to Istria ...  


It's aperitivi time on a Saturday evening ... allow us to virtually transport you to a place aptly referred to as the "New Tuscany" ...


Picture a landscape of rolling hills, mysterious forests, olive groves and vineyards as far as the eye can see. 

A rustic landscape that is home to award-winning wineries and a host of gourmet treats, including his Majesty, the Istrian Truffle.


Welcome to beautiful Green Istria!


Recently featured in Forbes as one of The Best Bucket List Experiences To Plan For 2021 And 2022, we invite you to enjoy this culinary adventure and taste experience from the comfort of your home.  

Your Hosts

Your hosts for the evening will be Wanda (founder of White Truffles) and Tanya (co-founder of Croatia Unpacked).  They are both well positioned to offer you an insiders perspective into the gourmet paradise that is Istria.  Over the course of the last decade, these two female entrepreneurs both decided to pack in their successful corporate careers, and invest their skills and expertise in building a business around their respective passions. 


Wanda's passion can be found in the heart of the mystical truffle forests of Istria, where her family live and run a 6th generation business, specializing in the hunting, production and innovative processing of top quality truffles and truffle products.  Thanks to Wanda, and her company White Truffles, Canadians now have exclusive access to Pietro&Pietro's award-winning truffles. 


Tanya fell in love with Istria on a motorcycle road-trip in 2016, discovering a land of gourmet delights and business opportunity.  She has since established a travel business in Istria - offering luxury villa accommodation and unique experiences to inquisitive travellers - as well as launching Croatia Unpacked, introducing the wonderful world of Croatian wine to Ontario wine lovers.


The Event

Your evening will start with a curated virtual tasting of wine and appetizer-style truffle treats, as Wanda and Tanya introduce you to the history, landscape and gourmet traditions of Istria.  With your appetites whetted, Wanda will go on to share her culinary tips for preparing the full dinner experience - your elevated black truffle pasta - for you to enjoy at your leisure, after the event.
