Chef Uroš Štefelin likes to challenge himself by the concept of not knowing the new creations of the future yet, but tries to push his culinary boundaries. One traditional dish that remains the same is Kroparska žonta – a dish made of the liver. This one stays on the menu because chef Uroš has fond memories of eating it at his grandmother’s home when he was a kid. Dishes Uroš did adapt are Gorenjska želodec (pork stomach), which usually takes very long to cook and can only be eaten in winter, and “tepka”, an old variety of Slovenian pear. This delicious fruit is normally only used in spirits, but with the creativity and skills of chef Uroš the pears are now used for breakfast in Carniolan sausages, for lunch in pasta, and for dinner with foie gras.
