Olive Istrian olive tree - Istrska Belica

The Legend says that Istrska Belica refused to reign in the Kingdom of Olive trees as her mission was too important for humanity to lose time to reign. Therefore she preferred to grow, reproduce and give birth to an abundance of fruit. In memory of the grand decision the Istrian Belica has a recognizable spicy bitterness, no retreats and pure joy of a perfect and healthy olive oil.

Salt: Salt is the sea that could not return in the sky

The Piran Salt Pans are among those rare salt pans in the world where salt is produced using centuries-old processes, involving entirely natural crystallisation, working by hand and employing tools and procedures used by our ancestors. The tiny pyramidal crystals of white to pink are the most valuable crop of the Piran salt-pans. On the surface of the brine they are generated only with calm weather as they disrupt with the slightest wave. Fleur de sel elevate all salads, carpaccio, seafood and other culinary masterpieces salted right on a plate. Only then the dish acquired taste and a slight aroma of these fragile crystals. On the table it is always in pole-position together with the best extra virgin olive oil or balsamic vinegar. (http://www.soline.si/en/article/salt-panning_2/did-you-know)
