A taste of her­itage in Slove­nia

Vacations & Travel - - Global Dining -

Sit­u­ated in the small town of Radovljica in north­ern Slove­nia, Vila Pod­vin restau­rant has a proud his­tory dat­ing back to the 14th cen­tury. Orig­i­nally a sta­ble, it was con­verted into a restau­rant with ac­com­mo­da­tion in 1968, and has been a cel­e­bra­tion of lo­cal cul­ture and tra­di­tion ever since. Con­sid­ered one of Slove­nia’s best chefs, chef Uroš Šte­fe­lin fo­cuses on lo­cal in­gre­di­ents and pro­duc­ers, and puts a cre­ative and con­tem­po­rary spin on clas­sic Slove­nian favourites, re­vi­tal­is­ing tra­di­tional dishes that would oth­er­wise be for­got­ten in to­day’s world. The menu fea­tures lo­cal trout and caviar, lamb, veal, guinea fowl, Slove­nian cheeses, an abun­dance of fresh pro­duce, and fruit-cen­tric desserts. Each dish comes on lo­cally-made ce­ramic ware, and the flavour and beauty of each meal is com­ple­mented with a se­lec­tion of Slovene wines and beers. More than just a restau­rant and ho­tel, Vila Pod­vin also runs a cook­ing school and hosts a monthly farm­ers mar­ket, con­tin­u­ing val­ues of tra­di­tion, love, qual­ity and sus­tain­abil­ity. vi­lapod­vin.si/en
