Join this highly interactive class, and prepare a traditional Slovenian dish inspired by grandma’s recipes.

Here you can slice, mix, season, and prepare a complete dinner with a local chef, and afterward sit down and enjoy the meal you’ve just created.

A four-course meal, seasoned with humour, a homey feeling, and Slovenian culinary tradition. Whether you participate or you just observe as we prepare the feast, you will definitely have some laughs, learn a lot, taste plenty of delicious food, and have a blast.

The menu consists of a cold-cut appetizer, warm starter, main dish, and a dessert. We adjust the menu seasonally since we always use fresh ingredients from local farms or from the market which is right next door. This way, we make sure you receive that authentic blend you’re looking for when cooking up something local.

Our teacher Andreja introduced us to some new and surprising food in our cooking class of Slovenian food. We have never had the combination of foods before and it was so fun. I appreciated that we had the class to ourselves because we could talk and learn so much about modern Slovenian life. It would have been fun to have more people in the class as well so that they could help us eat and drink all the delicious food and wine! Thank you for a memorable time!!

Thanks to Igor for great 4 hours spent at the cooking class. Loved the food, the recipes aren’t very difficult to follow and the food turned out very tasteful. It was served with good Slovenian wine. A very pleasant experience that I would recommend to others.

The cooking class was a surprise. It was really relaxed, really fun and the dish selection was so yummy. More like we were invited at somebody's home. Now that I have all recipes, I will serve some Slovenian specialties to my friends. I you happen to have some time in Ljubljana, I recommend it.
