Traditional dishes from Gorenjska

Some traditional dishes from Gorenjska 

Let’s start with a dish typical for Kranjska Gora and its surroundings – ‘Rateški Krapi’. This dish, made of potato dough and filled with cottage cheese, is available only in a few restaurants. One of these is the Restaurant Žerjav in village Rateče. There are also ‘buckwheat krapi’, made from buckwheat flour, and ‘Kocovi Krapi’, stuffed with a filling of dried pears.

Specialties from Gorenjska also include ‘govnač’ – sweet cabbage with potatoes, where hot dogs or sausages are usually served. And speaking of sausages – who doesn’t know Kranjska sausages? They say it contains only the best pork. Traditionally, it is served with sauerkraut or turnips, bread, and horseradish or mustard. However, we should also mention ‘pečenica’ and ‘krvavica’ (blood sausages).

In Tržič and its surroundings, the famous ‘bržola’ is made from mutton and vegetables. And let’s not forget the dish ‘mavželj’. These are actually meatballs wrapped in pork netting and baked in the oven. Another tasty dish is a loaf filled with smoked meat and bread called ‘Gorenjska prata’.

The famous spicy cheese Mohant comes from Bohinj. It is a soft cheese with a characteristic smell and taste, as it ripens in anaerobic conditions, releasing ammonia.

There are many variations, but you can only get the original Bled cream cake at Café Park in Bled. This dessert is made of delicious vanilla cream, whipped sweet cream, and puff pastry made with butter, not margarine.

We find gingerbread products in Radovljica. The best known is in the shape of a red heart.

City Škofja Loka is also home to some typical dishes. For example, a turnip stuffed with millet porridge is called ‘Loška smojka’. Buckwheat flour and vegetables make ‘Loška mešta’. The ‘Loška medla’ is a very similar dish made from millet porridge and buckwheat flour.

‘Žganci’ are probably the most widespread dish throughout Slovenia. But there is also a Gorenjska version – ‘Jurjeva kapa’. In this case, ‘žganci’ are shaken into a bowl in the shape of a cap and covered with beaten-baked eggs. Finally, another dish is made from buckwheat or corn flour – ‘masovnik’. In this case, flour is mixed in sour and sweet cream.
