Due to its geographic position, Slovenia connects four different worlds, which is also reflected in its gastronomy. Both traditional and haute cuisine put much emphasis on high-quality, locally-produced ingredients, which provide a fullness of flavours. Diversity, creativity, and commitment to the principle ‘from the garden to the table’ have been increasingly placing Slovenia on the European gastronomic map. Mediterranean region of Slovenia has been particularly influenced by Italian and Istrian culture. The reflection of history is therefore well noticeable up to this day. You might discover this influence also by tasting local cuisine.
