Take a trip to Istria, a peninsula on the Adriatic Sea that straddles Italy, Solvenia, and Croatia. Its rich history is one of changing borders and shifting cultural influence, all of which have left a lasting impression on its distinctive cuisine.

Think North Italian with Austro-Hungarian flavours – lentil and barley soup, black gnocchi with calamari, plus plenty of strudels and goulash. Also included in this stunning cookbook are sweets like almond and coffee cake, along with personal stories from Melbourne-based chef Paola Bacchia's ancestral home.
