In a year when the whole world closed and when travel isn’t something we take for granted anymore, we nostalgically remembered our past culinary experiences and started to wonder when will it be possi - ble to add new ones. Sometimes though, you don’t have to go far to get to know the world because our door into the culinary world were opened by the international team of Hiša Franko with chef Ana Roš in the vanguard. Their rich menu took us to Greek beaches, into a Mexi - can pub, among Japanese temples and to a market in southeastern Asia. We didn’t just walk around the world; Hiša Franko stays deeply connected to everything local. A walk around the surrounding forest brought autumn leaves and pine cones onto the menu, the meadows provided plantago, nettles and meadowsweet and the farms from the nearby hills made sure we got some nice yoghurt, sour milk and Tolmin cheese. And only Ana Roš knows how to combine all of these seemingly unconnected ingredients into a harmonious whole that tells a story of her travels and experiences, of her team’s childhood memories, of the pristine environment in which they create. We travelled to Posočje, went around the world and came back home, richer for another unforgettable culinary experience.
