What does "Odprta Kuhna" mean, you ask? It means "Open Kitchen" and it's an event, a culinary project, a freshly-made food market, taking place in Ljubljana, in the city center, next to the regular market, every Friday, from spring to fall.

What is going on there? Around 50 different restaurants from all over Slovenia have joined the project and opened their kitchens to everyone that wants to stop by the market. But even though the restaurants are from Slovenia, it does not mean you can only get Slovenian food. No way. You can get almost everything you wish for: from Slovenian, Italian, Serbian, to Egyptian, Asian and Indian food. And much, much more. Sweet or salty. Vegan or non vegan. You can also get coffee, beer and even schnapps. And much, much more.

Why am I writing about this? Well, I love food and naturally I love events that are connected to food. And even though I have only been to Odprta Kuhna two times (I usually go home on Friday and have lunch at home), I have fallen in love with it. As you can see, I ate pie both times. First time it was a piece of asparagus pie and the second time a piece of spinach pie with pine nuts. Both times made by Bazilika. And when you eat something, knowing it's Friday, sun shining on your plate, ahhh ... heaven! I also tried a cup of delicious cappuccino made by Experiment. The experience is definitely making me think that I should spend more Fridays in Ljubljana. ;)

Soooo, if you are Ljubljana on a Friday and the weather is nice (it could be closed, if the weather is really bad, it happened), make sure you stop by Odprta Kuhna. There is something for everybody there, so don't worry, you will not be hungry. Or thirsty. ;)

Love, Kaja. ♥
