Slovenia’s Green Gastronomy

As Slovenia slowly begins to reopen to tourists, the new season highlights Slovenia’s green gastronomy as one of the key reasons to visit in 2021

A dedication to sustainability in all areas have led to Slovenia eing proclaimed European Region of Gastronomy 2021, as well as it being recognised as one of Europe’s most exciting new culinary capitals.

The unique advantage of Slovenian chefs is their privileged access to local ingredients. The Slovenian culinary philosophy is based on the principle ‘from the garden to table’ and this is reflected in the close relationships between chefs and local producers, as well as the deep connections between Slovenian landscapes and traditional culinary experiences.

Slovenia also has six owners of a coveted Michelin star (Hiša Franko, two Michelin star Restaurant, Hiša Denk, Atelje Restaurant, Vila Podvin, Dam Restaurant and Gostilna pri Lojzetu, all one Michelin star Restaurants), and their relationships with local producers help define and inspire their world class culinary creations.

HIŠA FRANKO

Hiša Franko owes its existence to traditions and the local environment of the lush Soča Valley – harsh, remote, but breathtakingly beautiful. Set in the foothills of towering mountains and next to the emerald river, Hiša Franko’s cuisine sources from what nature has to offer.

HIŠA DENK

Hiša Denk is located between the picturesque wine routes of Austrian Styria and Mariborsko Pohorje. This restaurant continues to build on the family culinary tradition featuring the finest produce of Styria. The extensive wine list offers a fine selection of local, national and international white, red and orange wines.

ATELJE RESTAURANT

The food at Atelje is a product of teamwork in the kitchen, whether its the creative or the actual technical process of cooking. They pride themselves on cooking in a natural way, using local ingredients, following the seasons and making about 90% of their products in-house.

VILA PODVIN

Located in the village of Mošnje Radovljica, Villa Podvin is seven kilometres from the centre of Bled and features an on-site restaurant serving Slovenian cuisine.

DAM RESTAURANT

The atmosphere of the restaurant evokes the charm and elegance of an urban environment, with particular attention to intimacy. A relaxed atmosphere, pleasant music and culinary enjoyment with originaly dishes.

GOSTILNA PRI LOJZETU

Gostilna pri Lojzetu finds its home in the Zemono Manor House, where it offers unique culinary delights. They take care of the ingredients and their freshness according to the season and the purity of the flavours. Preparation techniques in the kitchen range from entirely simple to traditional. Yet they all have something in common. None of them alter the original flavours.
