HEAD CHEF, HISA FRANKO, slovenia

The daughter of a journalist and a doctor, Ana Ros got involved in cooking in a very romantic way after her boyfriend's -now husband- parents decided to retire from running their gostilna (think bistro, osteria, casual restaurant) in the tiny village of Kobarid and Ana took over the kitchen. 

The Hisa Franko of back then was a simple, traditional, good food place but Ana had different ideas inspired by many things including the kitchens of Ferran Adria's El Bulli where she worked.

Today, almost two decades later, Hisa Franko is a fine-dining destination featured on the World's 50 Best list and at the forefront of new-Slovenian cuisine.
