Slovenia to promote “green gastronomy” in 2021
With Slovenia named “European Region of Gastronomy” 2021, the country’s tourism board is promoting the unique selling points of its regional cuisine.
Slovenia combines a rich natural larder and historic food traditions with influences spanning Italy in the west, Austria in the north and Hungary and Croatia to the east. Pair this with world-class chefs, a new Michelin guide and world leading wines, and you begin to understand why Slovenia is one of Europe’s most exciting new culinary capitals.
The unique advantage of Slovenian chefs is their privileged access to local ingredients. Their culinary philosophy is based on the principle from the “garden to table” and this is a philosophy reflected in the close relationships between chefs and local producers, as well as the deep connections between Slovenian landscapes and traditional culinary experiences.
New Slovenian Green Cuisine Label announced
To further underpin Slovenia’s dedication to green gastronomy at all levels, the Slovenian Tourist Board are announcing a new ‘Slovenian Green Cuisine’ label which will become part of the Green Scheme of Slovenian Tourism. It is a certification programme that celebrates the destinations and service providers placing sustainability at the core of their activities.
