GOURMET EXPERIENCE

Both regions are known for some special local dishes. If we speak about Carinthia, we can not go there, not to try Mežerli. This rustic Slovenian dish was traditionally prepared during pig, veal, or lamb slaughter. It usually combines cooked offal such as lungs and hearts with bread, spices, and eggs. The combination is mixed into a mash that is then shortly baked and should be served warm.Mežerli can be enjoyed as an appetizer or the main course when it is accompanied by bread, boiled potatoes, or potato salad. The dish is usually associated with the region of Carinthia.

At Styria, the typical dishes include pohorski pisker, the aromatic pohorska bunka with local cheese, the simple pohorska omleta and pohorski žganci with local milk or coffee with milk. Try these dishes at one of the many good gostilnas, restaurants with olden age ambiance, tourist farms or the local wine cellars, where the culinary and viticulture masterpieces add a pinch of the typical Štajerska region hospitality.
