Scents of the Kvarner cuisine

Are you wondering what is being cooked in the kitchens across Opatija Riviera? Seafood specialities spiced with local aromatic herbs are always very popular. Gourmets will surely appreciate the precious taste of Kvarner scampi and wild asparagus prepared in various ways, a wide choice of cakes and desserts prepared by skilled confectioners, or the variety of autumn fruits, such as a special variety of sweet chestnut that thrives only in this area.

A good meal demands a good glass of wine. Local experts recommend local white wine varieties such as Malvazija or Pinot gris or Pinot blanc to accompany white fish or white meat. Roasted lamb is best served with Vrbnička žlahtina and Chardonnay, while red meat and oily fish require a glass of red wine such as Teran, Merlot, Borgonja, Cabernet sauvignon or Cabernet. The mentioned desserts perfectly blend with local wines Muškat and Prošek
