Forest-to-table dining may be trendy these days, but for many living in Slovenia, it’s been a way of life for centuries. Tucked away at the foot of the Alps, Slovenia is flush with fresh flora—along with countless culinary virtuosos who harvest and prepare these plants in spectacularly savory ways. From a local grandmother known as the ambassador of dried pears to a world-renowned chef—and our guide’s mother-in-law, who happens to be an experienced porcini mushroom forager—these epicurean experts will be our guiding lights as we munch our way through the forests, foothills, and pastures of Slovenia. Under their guidance, we’ll season our own schnapps, take a crash course in beekeeping, and craft a charismatic cheese—all the while learning the intricacies of collecting fresh herbs, plants, and fungi from a top-tier forager. Bring an open mind, a curious palette, and a healthy appetite for adventure, and you’re sure to experience the best homegrown (and forest-grown) flavors of this stunning alpine country.
