Restaurant Korak

Restaurant Korak

In the rolling hills near Zagreb lies the town of Jastrebarsko. Here you will find restaurant Korak, meaning “a step” in Croatian. This cozy establishment was founded within the family winery and marks an important step forward in the development of the gastronomic scene in Plešivica, a renowned wine region that many call “the Croatian Champagne”.  Korak has the honour of being the first fine-dining restaurant in the region. The restaurant is a project of talented young chef Bernard Korak, whose goal is to connect local producers, gastronomic heritage, and a touch of nature. The unwritten kitchen rule of Bernard is, "if it's not in season, it's off the table."

Chef Bernard’s culinary education started under renowned chef Priska Thuring. Eager to continue his education, Bernard joined Slovenian restaurant Hiša Franko for an internship, but only one month later chef Ana Roš offered him a full-time job as sous-chef. In the winter, when the restaurant was closed, Bernard worked at Osteria Francescana with top chef Massimo Bottura.

Korak’s cuisine

At restaurant Korak, chef Bernard is creating 5 to 8-course tasting menus. In his exquisite dishes, he strives to unfold a taste adventure like a suspenseful thriller, each course giving way to new sensations and possibilities.  With his cuisine, Bernard tells a new, exciting, and intriguing story of the coexistence of nature, local ingredients, and family. Each dish can of course be paired with an excellent glass of wine, including labels from the estate’s own winery.

Jastrebarsko surroundings

Only 45 kilometers away from the capital Zagreb, lies Plešivica, a renowned wine region. Although it is the smallest wine region in Croatia, the southern slopes of Plešivica are home to the country’s most famous and most successful vineyards, with a tradition of growing vines that is measured in centuries.  An interesting highlight in the town of ​​Jastrebarsko is the historic ​​Erdődy castle. Also worth checking out is Plešivica Wine Road, adorned by picturesque landscapes, with many cultural and historic sites, traditions, and friendly hosts. You can also enjoy various sports in the region, including hiking and cycling. 

A young chef whose career was supposed to be something completely different. But through his dedication, he is going to become one of the best Balkan chefs.
