There is a reason why “Krčki pršut”, the Krk prosciutto, was the first Croatian product to be awarded the protected geographical indication in the EU. The Krk prosciutto has a very mild aroma due to a long curing, which takes at least a year and its taste is not veiled by smoke. The Krk prosciutto is processed with wild growing aromatic herbs, which grow on the island of Krk in abundance, is cultivated in skin, is not smoked, but cured in the wind bora (Croatian: bura). The Krk bora is a powerful wind that blows down the Velebit Mountain and brings small drops of sea water. Thanks to this sleet, the sheep graze the salty aromatic herbs, which gives the Krk sheep cheese a unique flavor.
The abundance on aromatic herbs of the island of Krk and the strength of the wind bora imbue these famous Krk delicacies, the Krk prosciutto and cheese, which are served with other traditional delicacies of the House of Krk Prosciutto – Krk sausage, Krk salami, pancetta and prosciutto paté, olives, pickles and homemade bread. The tasting also includes šurlice, the famous traditional handmade pasta form the island of Krk.
