Its announcement on the 20th of November made for an important step for Slovenian gastronomy as it is getting increasingly noticed in the world’s map of fine dining and gastronomy.
The Maribor’s area is renowned for its great food and culinary delights offered from tourist farms to inns, pubs and all the way to superb five-star restaurants. Through the Gault & Millau guide for Slovenia, the city of Maribor received additional world’s attention for two of its restaurants were ranked among the best Slovenian restaurants. To make things even more interesting, the two chefs in the two restaurants are brothers Vračko. Both of the brothers are renowned for being enfant terribles of the Slovenian cooking scene, for moving borders and for their rebellious stance – they do provide fine dining, but they, themselves, do utterly avoid to be taken as the ‘fine guys’.
