This event is just one of many gourmet events that continuously enrich the offer of Istria, put it on the world gourmet map again and attract more and more visitors every day. The quality of service and accommodation should be understood, in accordance with the categorization, but the overall impression is affected by the overall impression of the entire destination. From the first contact on the website, arrival, stay and departure, after the emotions and experiences subside. In tourism, everything is interconnected. To emphasize again, the motive for coming is not accommodation, but destination. Bravo for a new great tourist story. Our authentic story and new motive for coming. Authenticity is the word that accompanies this portal and my philosophy of tourism from day one. Certainly the most used word was and will remain. Because it is authenticity that creates the motive for coming. Of course, as with any development of a tourist product, it is always desirable to have as large a budget as possible, both for better production and for advertising, in order to accelerate its development and skip several years of growth. But the most important thing is to go ahead and do the best you can at the moment in your frameworks and resources. And again Istria. Nothing is accidental, so stories like this happen mostly in Istria. Simply put, Istria, no matter what, is pushing its market story, ie market development. And the interior of Istria is the new-old biggest secret of Istrian tourism. Authentic and quality content that is just lacking in the overall tourist offer of Istria. Maritime destinations are relatively developed, and now the main focus should be on the fastest, but sustainable, development of the interior of Istria. Ultimately, after xx days of rest, the guest makes the final decision about the destination. Whether we met his expectations or not. Or we even surpassed them. Is he satisfied and will he come back again? Will he become our ambassador? We know that the best marketing, always has been and always will be, is word of mouth marketing. It is the holy grail in tourism. The new gourmet event is on the same track ‘Tradizione a tavola: dishes from piñata ‘ which will be held from March 13 to April 12 in taverns in the Kanfanar, Svetvincenat and Bale area. Manifestation ‘Tradizione a tavola: dishes from piñata’is the result of cooperation between the tourist boards of Svetvinčenat, Bale – Valle and Kanfanar with the tourist company Maistra dd and the Association of Craftsmen Rovinj on the development of gourmet products in the destination, and is a combination of tradition and excellent Istrian gastronomy. As part of this new gourmet story, four famous Istrian taverns will take part: Kod Kancelira, Castello, Konoba Klarići and OPG Pekica, which will offer visitors a series of traditionally prepared, hot dishes from pinatas in the way prepared by their grandmothers. to which numerous generations of Istrians grew up.The menu will include, among other things, jota of cabbage and beets, maneštra with fennel, salt or trukinja, as well as traditional Istrian pasta: pljukanci, fuži, gnocchi and ravioli. In addition to home-made pasta, many guests will be able to taste Istrian prosciutto, wild asparagus, game or home-made chicken manure and Istrian boškarin dishes. All dishes will be able to taste local wines of Istrian winemakers.

And also, the motive for coming is never accommodation, but precisely the destination. And that is why synergy and cooperation are always needed at all levels, vertically and horizontally. Also, much greater understanding, openness and ultimately financial assistance from the big ones is needed, so that the interior of both Istria and other sea destinations can develop faster and better. No one can be alone, no matter how big, because it is not he who makes the destination. But about that a little later in the article. Traditional Istrian cuisine and indigenous dishes from local ingredients – this is the main narrative of this new great gastronomic story, which affects the very essence of tourism. Authenticity of the tourist offer.

DayOne or OneDay, the choice is always up to us. This is how the story of Istra Wine & Walk started a long time ago, and today it would be one of the main motives for coming to the interior of Istria outside the tourist season. Not through the construction of large hotels, there are quite enough of them half an hour from the interior, but through the development of small family hotels and rural holiday homes with a story. At excellent taverns, wineries, olive groves and gastronomic offer with additional tourist facilities from active to cultural tourism. On the other hand, sea destinations as well as large hoteliers also need the development of the interior of Istria, in order to be able to offer their guests quality content, which we chronically lack. Thus, tourist consumption increases, seasons are extended and the tour is dispensed. spending on the local economy.
The Hammers boss was left irked by referee Neil Swarbrick during Sunday’s 2-1 Barclays Premier League defeat to Arsenal at Upton Park after the Gunners were awarded a penalty and the hosts were denied a late spot-kick. Winston Reid was adjudged to have felled Santi Cazorla in the box, with Swarbrick pointing to the spot as the Spaniard went to ground under the challenge, but – with West Ham chasing a stoppage-time equaliser – Morgan Amalfitano decided to stay on his feet when challenged by Kieran Gibbs. West Ham welcome managerless West Brom to Upton Park on New Year’s Day looking to halt a run of two defeats over the festive period, albeit to Chelsea and Arsenal, with Allardyce having an almost-full squad to select from for the visit of the Baggies. James Tomkins is suspended and Mauro Zarate will play no part as a loan move across London to QPR edges closer. Fellow summer recruit Enner Valencia is likely to be involved. Meanwhile, James Morrison insists there is nowhere for the West Brom players to hide as he bids to impress Tony Pulis. Former Stoke and Crystal Palace manager Pulis will watch from the stands when the Baggies go to Upton Park and is expected to be confirmed as their new head coach before the weekend. Press Association Sport understands he will sign a two-and-half-year deal to replace the sacked Alan Irvine. Pulis will be Albion’s fourth head coach in just over a year and Morrison knows places are not guaranteed. “You’ve got to impress the new head coach to get in the team,” he told the club’s official site. “We’ve got a big squad here, a lot of new players came in at the start of the season who are champing at the bit to play. “So you’ve got to be on top of your game to get in the side. “Rob (Kelly, assistant head coach) is a good guy. Keith (Downing) and Deano (Dean Kiely) are also there who have been here for a number of years and have a good bond with the players. “So everyone is pulling in the right direction and in the right frame of mind. “It’s a fresh start. We’ve got to be putting in 100 per cent and getting a win for the fans, who deserve more.” The Baggies are 16th in the Barclays Premier League, a point above the drop zone, after seven defeats in their last nine games. Press Association With both Chelsea and Sunderland profiting from controversial penalty decisions against the Hammers in recent weeks, Allardyce believes going to ground when caught by the opposition may be the only way to bring a foul to the attention of the officials. “As long as it’s not simulation – as long as you get the right decision from it,” he said when asked if a player needed to fall over to get a foul. “If you’re not touched and you go down because you’re not touched, that’s not the way forward. But if you can’t get what you ordinarily should get, then you’ve got to consider the fact that if you make a meal of it, you make a meal of it because the contact is sufficient enough. “The contact on Amalfitano was sufficient enough to put him off getting the ball cleanly in that position to try to help us score a goal. It impeded him from getting a better contact on the ball. “Like I said, that’s where a penalty should be given and if that’s the case then it would be much better across the board. “As difficult as it is for referees, those are the decisions that they should be capable of giving. All the other infringements are here and there, if you like, but then when it comes to major decisions, it’s how the goal is judged and how the referee is judged. “A very good game from a referee can’t evolve being 99 per cent great and then the one per cent being one major decision he’s got wrong, because then he’s had a bad game – like a goalkeeper can be brilliant and then all of a sudden he drops one ball and it gets put in the net and he’s had it. “Unfortunately the referees are not brave enough to give those penalties because, in the surroundings and the atmosphere in the stadiums, it doesn’t look like one, but their job is to identify if it is or not.” Sam Allardyce would not prevent his players from “making a meal” out of contact if it meant his West Ham side were given the decisions they deserved.
Florida general manager Larry Beinfest declined to comment Tuesday, but another team official said the front office was angry about the matter. The official requested anonymity because Beinfest wouldn’t comment. Girardi’s relationship with management quickly soured in his only season with Florida, and he was fired in October – then chosen NL Manager of the Year. Marlins left-hander Dontrelle Willis shrugged off the comments about Girardi helping Lieber. “What are you going to do now?” Willis said. “He doesn’t even work here anymore. You can’t dock his pay. “I don’t think it’s a big deal. If we lost the wild card by two games, OK. But there are so many different other factors.” Torre’s brother ailing Joe Torre’s brother could undergo a kidney transplant in the next couple of months after tests determined two of his children are a match for the procedure. Former major leaguer Frank Torre needs the operation because of medication he’s taken since receiving a new heart more than a decade ago. Player news The Twins and reliever Jesse Crain agreed to a $3.25 million, three-year contract. The 25-year-old Crain went 4-5 with a 3.52 ERA in 68 games last season. The Indians have started talks with the agent for C.C. Sabathia on a contract extension. Sabathia is due to make $8.75 million this year and $9 million in 2008. He is eligible for free agency after the 2008 World Series. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! “He just mentioned that the hitters said everything that was coming in was just very flat,” Lieber told the Philadelphia Daily News. “I wasn’t on top of the ball like I should have been.” Both teams contended for the NL wild-card berth, and Lieber beat the Marlins twice in September. Marlins officials were unhappy to hear that their manager last year, Joe Girardi, gave rival pitcher Jon Lieber helpful tips during the season. Lieber said his season with the Philadelphia Phillies turned around shortly after he was roughed up by the Marlins last July 31, and he credits a phone call from Girardi, a former major league catcher. They played together with the Chicago Cubs from 2000-02.
