LJUBLJANA, Slovenia, Sept. 24, 2021, /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/--

The prestigious restaurant guide revealed the 2021 selection of restaurants 
that are featured in the latest edition. Michelin inspectors awarded two stars 
to one restaurant and one star to six Slovenian restaurants in their second 
assessment. The restaurant Gosti┼íèe Griè joins the list of MICHELIN Star 
restaurants. The Bib Gourmand category includes seven restaurants, and 39 
restaurants were awarded the Michelin Plate. Slovenian gastronomy was also 
recognised in the sustainability category: as many as six restaurants received 
the Michelin Green Star. The second edition of the MICHELIN GUIDE SLOVENIA thus 
features a total of 53 restaurants.

The recognition cements the exceptional quality provided by Slovenian 
gastronomy and the additional effort made to maintain its reputation of 
excellence in challenging times and the 2021 Michelin Guide will be a 
significant accolade in the promotion of Slovenian tourism.

Embellished with the renowned stars, the Slovenia Green Cuisine label and the 
title of the European Region of Gastronomy 2021, Slovenia will further enhance 
its visibility as a green, active and safe destination of exceptionally diverse 
experiences, which are connected specifically with gastronomy serving as one of 
the frequent motivations of domestic and foreign guests. 

Maja Pak, M.Sc Director of the Slovenian Tourist Board (STB) adds: "I am proud 
that the stars from Slovenia shine once again on the global map of gastronomy 
this year and the world is witness to the commitment of our chefs high quality, 
sustainability, uniqueness, creativity and innovation. The hospitality industry 
is facing a demanding period, which is why this year's stars, which maintain 
optimism and create new stories, are even more important."

Slovenia has established a reputation as one of Europe's most exciting new 
culinary destinations. The country's diverse influences combined with its 
garden to table philosophy, recently added Green Cuisine certification 
programme and increasing offering of Michelin-star dining makes Slovenia a must 
on the global culinary stage. 

Located in the heart of Europe, Slovenia's culinary scene is something special. 
The combination of four geographically very different areas - Alps, the 
Mediterranean Sea, the Karst and the Pannonian - contributes to the rich and 
diverse culinary offerings across the country. The relationship between chefs 
and local producers is particularly strong and the city continually encourages 
its chefs and restaurateurs to follow this philosophy and utilise their unique 
advantage of privileged access to local ingredients.
