Slovenian Gastronomy: You can't spell Slovenia without love. Your plate awaits.
Director: Ciril Jazbec
Producer: Klemen Skubic
As the video showcases, the unique advantage of Slovenian chefs is their privileged access to local ingredients. 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. Through the video, viewers will get to know the character and life of all six owners of a coveted Michelin star from Michelin's first revelation for Slovenia (Hi?a Franko, two Michelin star Restaurant, Hi?a Denk, Atelje Restaurant, Vila Podvin, Dam Restaurant and Gostilna pri Lojzetu, all one Michelin star Restaurants), and explore how their relationships with local producers help define and inspire their world-class culinary creations. Chefs Ana Ro?, Gregor Vra?ko, Jorg Zupan, Uro? ?tefelin, Uro? Faku?, and Toma? Kav?i? are all presented in the video with the opportunity for viewers to share their vision, dedicated work, passion, and love for food and the environment.
The video offers an insight into why Slovenia is the perfect choice for a culinary adventure holiday and also explores the close connection between first-time Michelin stars awarded chefs, producers, and the natural world. A dedication to sustainability in all areas has led to Slovenia having been named European Region of Gastronomy 2021 as well as being recognized as one of Europe?s most exciting new culinary capitals.
