Culinary delights: Guest house Repovž

During our weekend getaways for two food is always the main thing.

We always try to chose a restaurant where we would be able to enjoy tasting the food and time we spent there. I'm a real gourmand, therefore pictures are scarce, as never think early enough to photograph the dishes before starting to eat.

The search was, as it always is, extensive, the competition fierce and selection was flavoured.

In October we chose the Guest house Repovž, situated up on the hills in Štentjaž near Radeče, and it was well worth it. This small village also offers plenty of hikes to nearby hills and trips to nearby surroundings. So, you can well plan a stay of a few days and let your self be pampered by the beautiful nature, amazing views and delicious food.

We got to taste seven different dishes, from starter to main course and dessert in a very slow way.

All the ingredients they use are local and organic, whether they produce them themselves at their organic farm or are from local farmers. The Guest house Repovž produces its own spelt and buckwheat flour, honey, apple juice, jams and wine. And the list doesn't end there.

Modra frankinja, rabbit and red trout were the key ingredients that flavoured almost every dish. Modra frankinja is the grape and also a wine that is specific for this region and it was found in starters as some kind of pate, side dishes as well as in desserts.

We also spent the night as we came in for diner. They have small, comfortable rooms of no great luxury, but the best thing about spending the night was the breakfast. Full of their own or local organic products from yogurts, butter, jams and honey to of course cheeses and salami. And the best thing was coffee from the bowl. You just can't beat the smell and taste of that kind of coffee. We Slovenes are all crazy about coffee so called Turkish coffee.

It was a delicious getaway for two not just because of the food.
