Taste Radol'ca restaurants use locally-produced ingredients to create typical Gorenjska dishes. In the green woodlands and countryside healthy produce is grown, which talented chefs incorporate into exceptional dishes inspired by local tradition. Taste Radol'ca restaurants can be recognised by the sign on their entrances, whilst local dishes are marked in their menus by a small printed Radol'ca bee.

 

 

TRADITIONAL AND CONTEMPORARY GORENJSKA DISHES

Taste Radol'ca chefs take their inspiration from the environment in which they grew up. In places the traditional method of preparation has been preserved, whilst elsewhere traditional dishes are given a make-over and are revived in a unique way.

 

PARTICIPATING RESTAURANTS AND INNS

 

CO-OPERATING AND CONNECTING

Taste Radol'ca unites nine restaurants and inns in the Radol'ca area. They have vowed not only to take part in group promotions but also, above all, to co-operate and connect – amongst each other and with local producers.

 

LOCAL SUPPLIERS

 

RECOGNITION OF QUALITY

In 2017 Taste Radol'ca restaurants invited two of Slovenia's most respected food critics to carry out an evaluation of each participating restaurant and inn. Following their visit, each restaurant was awarded a rating from 1-6 in the form of 'suns'. All the participating Taste Radol'ca restaurants received a minimum rating of 3.

 

November – the month of local menus

Participating Taste Radol'ca restaurants offer dishes prepared using seasonal ingredients year-round. Every November they come together to produce special dishes and culinary events. At the opening event at the end of October the chefs and waiting staff unite to host an exceptional culinary experience.

 

THE MONTH OF LOCAL MENUS

 

STREET FOOD AND THEMED MENUS

Taste Radol'ca offers street food at selected events in Radovljica's old town centre. At July's concert evenings visitors can listen to music whilst enjoying  tasty street food, as well as at the switching-on of the Christmas lights in December and other occasions.

 

For larger events themed culinary offers are prepared, such as in April for the Chocolate Festival, when chocolate-based menus are offered, and in September for the Honey Festival, when honey-based menus are available.
