Promoting those who are committed to sustainable gastronomy

The MICHELIN Guide is highlighting the initiatives and commitment of chefs who advocate a more sustainable model of gastronomy. In this Slovenian edition, the MICHELIN Guide continues an international project to use a single emblem to distinguish chefs committed to preserving the environment.

This selection of restaurants, distinguished with one or more Stars, a Bib Gourmand or a MICHELIN Plate, brings together chefs with a common cause, whose inspiring and virtuous initiatives and methods help to raise awareness of the importance of environmental issues. Throughout Slovenia, MICHELIN Guide inspectors have found many chefs who are committed to promoting regional products while devising a cuisine that respects nature and seasonal changes.

From the wine-growing hills of the west to the magnificent lakes of the east, from the Adriatic coast to the lively streets of Ljubljana, teams of MICHELIN Guide inspectors have discovered a cuisine with a strong identity that oscillates between cultural heritage and innovation.
