The MICHELIN Guide Slovenia: Uroš Štefelin, chef at Hiša Linhart

The MICHELIN Guide continues the trip through Slovenia to discover its chefs and their tasteful cuisine. Following the launch of the MICHELIN Guide Slovenia in September 2024, we take a closer look at Hiša Linhart in Radovljica, run by chef Uroš Štefelin.

At Hiša Linhart in Radovljica in the north-west of the country, chef Uroš Štefelin uses modern ideas and techniques to take traditional Slovenian cuisine to a higher level. His cuisine is enhanced using local ingredients grown either in his own kitchen garden or sourced from neighbouring farms, all of which play a starring role in creative dishes that reinterpret traditional Gorenjska recipes and are full of flavour and colour.

Exotic ingredients are banned from his cuisine: “We’re not looking to create a wow effect simple by using unfamiliar flavours,” the chef explains, demonstrating how combinations of various Slovenian ingredients can also create different and interesting flavours.
