In a tiny yet thrilling country, chefs and their teams demonstrate a strong, daily commitment to constantly pushing the culinary boundaries, boldly imagining innovative and sustainable concepts, proudly showcasing local resources, and genially merging their food heritage with ideas from abroad. These passionate professionals are doing no less than shaping a new, persuasive and virtuous Slovenian food scene, worthy of the world’s attention. Embodying all of these trends, Hiša Franko run by the charismatic Ana Roš, and which we are delighted to award Three MICHELIN Stars, establishes itself as a world gastronomic flagship and boosts Slovenia’s position in the global culinary rankings. We sincerely hope that our 2023 vintage will motivate international travelers and national gourmets alike to discover the wonders our inspectors have unearthed for them, and to encourage the ongoing development of the local food scene.”
