2. Try Truffle Hunting in Buzet, Croatia

Some of the great food experiences don’t necessarily mean sitting down to a plate of delicious food. Croatia is a gorgeous country, not necessarily associated with a notable cuisine, but it has plenty of other charms for visitors. You could sail the Adriatic islands or enjoy the sights of Zagreb but I thought that as adventures for foodies go, truffle hunting is a great way to explore the fabulous countryside. Buzet on the Istrian Peninsula is known as the “City of Truffles” and skilled guides (you need a license) with their dogs hunt for the “black golden nuggets” in the Motovan Forest.
