Gibanica comprises multiple layers of apple, curd cheese, ground walnuts, poppy seeds and pastry.I think it’s at its most delicious when served warm.Pršut; Karst-dried ham – from the Karst region of Slovenia where the bora winds provide the perfect conditions for drying the salted meat, resulting in a delicious tender ham which goes perfectly with some local cheese and wine, adding to the Mediterranean feeling in Slovenia’s karst region.Bograč is a traditional dish from the Prekmurje region, on the border with Hungary, hence its similarity to goulash.Potica – One of the most typical Slovene desserts, though actually I consider it less of a dessert, more of an afternoon tea kind of food as it is something between a bread and a cake.It’s a filled rolled loaf which can have a variety of fillings, the most common include walnuts, poppy seeds, or tarragon, but there are also many other different varieties including savoury versions containing pork crackling.
