Just like nature, the cuisine of Miren Kras smells of two different worlds. One has been influenced by the slow course of the Vipava River that runs over the fields of the Goriška region, where you can find the best white asparagus in Slovenia. The mild climate has a soothing effect on people and flora. The Karst region has the most intensive scent, impacted by the bora wind and cured ham (prosciutto) which is best accompanied by the inebriating Teran wine.
Dark green Vipava River and red karst soil pair up perfectly in the cuisine of this serene side of the world. The fields in Orehovlje are filled with fresh seasonal vegetables, the firm Karst spices up culinary experiences with typical aromas. The homesteads and farms are open all year round, and their tables serve delicacies, from simple stews to meat or vegetable specialities that give you energy or clean your body. All sweet-toothed will be overwhelmed by the local cuisine, because Miren Kras is the home to jaw-dropping “štruklji” (dumplings with filling). The enogastronomical speciality are the so-called “osmice” at tourist farms. This refers to 14-day untaxed sale of home-made food and meat, that has traditionally been preserved since the times of Mary Theresa. Come for health and culinary dream to Miren Kras!
