Korčulanske Pjatance - Spring food and wine festival April 26-30 2019

From 26th until 30th April 2019 we will celebrate the richness of our local spring produce as part of Korcula’s Spring Food and Wine Festival - Korčulanske Pjatance http://korculanskepjatance.com/en.html

Chef Marko Gajski and his team will produce a range of special menus focused on local seasonal produce, such as wild asparagus, wild herbs and spring vegetables, paired with new season wine releases, olive oils, and the excellent sea food and meat that is available during that time. In order to encourage everyone to enjoy the richness of spring in Dalmatia all the menus will be at special value for money prices. Come and join us!
