I developed this recipe for an Istrian themed Secret Kitchen dinner and served it with potato gnocchi (or rather njoki), topped with fried King Oyster mushrooms, parmesan, parsley and shaved white truffles.

I developed this recipe for an Istrian themed Secret Kitchen dinner as a nod to Croatia's Habsburg past.  I am grateful to Felicity Cloake for her strudel research and tips, some of which is incorporated here.
