Don’t miss the November Gourmet culinary festival in Ljubljana

In Ljubljana, autumn is the season for enjoying delicious food and fine wine. The first culinary festivals and other events already start in September and October, while November is dedicated to the November Gourmet festival.

Ljubljana's culinary tradition is closely tied to seasonal local products with which the city's markets abound in autumn. In recent years, locally sourced ingredients together with the principles of sustainability and local chefs’ creativity have started a new trend: reinventing popular traditional dishes through modern methods of preparation.

The Taste Ljubljana brand represents the most fashionable dishes available in local restaurants.
