What could be more romantic for Valentine’s Day than an evening of wining and dining?
Join us on Thursday, the 14th day of February, 2019 at Historic Boutique Hotel Cattaro for the third edition of our Chef’s Night fine dining series.
This time we have the pleasure of welcoming one of the most remarkable young chefs in the region, Jorg Zupan. Jorg is head chef of ATELJE restaurant and bar at Hotel Union in Ljubljana. He visits along with Matjaž Zagradišnik, a representative of the country’s celebrated Jakončić Winery.
Chef’s Night with Jorg Zupan and Matjaž Zagradišnik
14 February, 2019 at 8 pm
Bring a friend, a romantic partner or spouse for a special 3-hour, 5-course dinner, expertly paired with 5 exceptional wines.
The meal will offer a lovely combination of traditional and modern Slovenian cuisine.
Each wine is from Slovenia, specifically Jakončić Winery, a famous winemaking region spanning western Slovenia and northeastern Italy. One of the winery’s most recent notable achievements was the naming of their Carolina Red wine among Decanter’s list of the 10 best wines in the region. This award-winning wine is one of the wine pairing selections for the evening.
Cattaro Hotel’s own head chef, Bojan Fržović, will provide support.
