Easily the best kept culinary secret of our peninsula, this ravioli-like pasta hails from east Istrian town of Labin, and is hard to find even on the menus of local restaurants. Traditionally made on special ocasions such as Christmas, it boasts rich, cheese-based filling, accompanied by an unusual combination of condiments including vanilla, nutmeg, lemon zest and raisins. Altogether they make for a dish somewhere halfway between a sweet and a savoury one.
For this class we make them savoury, accompanied by žgvacet, typical Istrian stew we usually make for pasta class. Another option is to make krafi with another local gem, padela-style meat, half sauteed, half fried in rich, thick sauce. Vegetarian option is available as well.
