5-Day Photography + Istria Workshop


Join me, Eva Kosmas Flores, and Bea Lubas of Bea's Cookbook for a 5-day retreat in the Croatian countryside. We'll spend our days in a restored stone farmhouse perched a top a hill overlooking the Mirna river valley, right in the middle of Istrian wine and truffle country. The home is complete with a large vegetable garden, where we'll be harvesting ingredients for our meals, and is equipped with all the modern luxuries, including a large tranquil swimming pool where we can relax in the evenings and take in the scenic surroundings. Mona and Jaret of Tournant will be joining us to take full advantage of the giant wood-fired hearth in the house's kitchen, preparing local Istrian dishes over a cozy roaring fire. We'll go on a guided excursion into the Croatian forest for truffle foraging, complete with adorable Croatian truffle-sniffing pups. And there will also be an afternoon outing to the ancient hilltop town of Motovun where we'll have lunch overlooking the Istrian valley. Danielle Firle will also be joining and will bring her sommelier skills to a little wine tasting at our Croatian home, and Lili Basic Lili Basic of Travelling Oven will be joining as well (along with the Croatian warmth + welcome that always come along with her).
