The Croatian region of Istria is world famous for its truffles. One of the largest truffles ever harvested in the world, weighing about 1.31 kg, has grown in Istria. He was found by Istrian caterer Giancarlo Zigante and his bitch Diana on November 2, 1999, not far from Buje. It is listed in the famous Guinness Book of Records as the largest truffle ever found in the world.
The Guinness truffle is made of bronze. The replica is on display at the local Zigante truffles store in Livade. You can see it here while exploring Istria on the way from Vižinada or Buzet to Motovun and further all the way to Oprtalj.
Zigante’s white truffle, called the Millennium, could fetch the price of gold in the market. But the spirit of harmony and togetherness, so typical of this area, intended a different fate. It was prepared and consumed in Istria, where it was found. World record events and celebrations helped make the small town of Livade recognizable as the world’s truffle center.The huge white truffle from Italy, which is claimed to be the largest in the world, was sold at auction in 2014 in New York for $ 61,250, Sotheby’s auction house announced.
The 1.89-pound truffle was bought by a buyer who participated in the auction by phone.Still, Guinness still has Zigante’s white truffle found near Buje in Istria in 1999, weighing 1.31 kg, on its record pages. In the meantime, another specimen larger than that (1.5 kg near Pisa) was found, but was not entered in the record book.White truffles are among the most expensive delicacies in the world.
In 2018, in the settlement of Smetovi near the town of Zenica (in Bosnia and Herzegovina), ecologists and mountaineers found white truffles (tuber magnatum) weighing 115 grams. Other ecologists, amateur botanists and mountaineers from Zenica have also found this precious mushroom in this area over the years.
White truffle grows below the surface of the earth to a depth of 30 cm, has the smell of garlic or cheese. The Istrians searched for mushrooms with the help of trained pigs. The pigs often ate the catch before the picker appeared. That is why the searchers from Istria started the search with the help of trained dogs. The harvest in Istria takes place in September and October.This mushroom is added to dishes in small quantities. It has miraculous power and serves as an aphrodisiac. The quality of this precious mushroom depends on the tree near which it was found. Ecologists from Zenica found the mushroom near the hazelnut. There are white and black truffles (whose price is 10 times lower than the price of white truffles). For uninformed pickers and amateur pickers, the precautionary rule applies because caution is never enough.
