There are two Slovenian women making global headlines this week. One is Melania Trump, wife of the President of the United States; the other is Ana Roš.
While it might be hard to match the First Lady in terms of column inches, the newly crowned World’s Best Female Chef will come a pretty close second in terms of making her mark over the next few years.
In their dating days, whenever Ana Roš’s husband, Valter, was in the doghouse, he would apologise by taking his wife to La Subida. Located on the Italian side of the border, it’s the only Slovenian restaurant in the world to have earned a Michelin star – because the Michelin guide doesn’t cover Slovenia. It is also the restaurant that most influenced Roš’s career.
