Famous writer, chef and TV celebrity Anthony Bourdain enjoys Croatian delicacies

Famous writer, chef and TV celebrity Anthony Bourdain enjoys Croatian delicaciesThe wittiest writer among chefs and the best chef among TV reporters, the author of the cult television gastro travel show «No Reservations», the world famous Anthony Bourdain, recently spent a few days in Istria. He also posted a number of photos from his experience on his personal Twitter profile @NoReservations.

His stay in Croatia began in Rovinj, where he was staying at the hotel Lone but he visited the whole of Istria. The first dish that he photographed was mussels `buzara` (mussels typically cooked in wine, olive oil, garlic and parsley) and following that a scampi `buzara` but this time with spaghetti. Apart from the seafood menu he was fascinated by the beauty of Rovinj and the wonderful sunsets for which this town is well known.

The curiosity of this gastro adventurer then took him to the sea, where he fished for small sharks with the local fishermen during freezing winds, which he complained about on Twitter. His last tweet about Istira was about warming up with some honey snapps.

He also tried truffles with the accompanying pasta, an octopuss cooked under a bell (‘ispod peke’) and oysters from the Lim Canal.

By his initial reactions he was mostly amazed by the Istrian white truffles. The famous travel writer and chef carried on his Croatian tour on the island of Pag, where he enjoyed the local delicaces – the amazing Pag cheese and lamb in Boškinac.
Bourdain also visited Skradin, where he tried and loved the Skradin risotto, which he described as a `traditional dish prepared by men only`.

He rated Croatian dishes as excellent and predicted that in ten years time Croatia will become a gastro world hit.

Bourdain`s world famous show «No Reservations» has 120 million fans around the world, and in its eighth season this number is still growing thanks to the very simple but interesting scenario, by which Anthony arrives in a foreign country in which he tries indigenous culinary specialties, gets to know local traditions and ingredients and then spices it all up with his recognizable cynical humor.

The filming in Croatia took eight days and the episode will be aired in March of this year.
