World's Best Female Chef 2017

3 toques and 17 GaultMillau points

Talent of the Year 2015 (Jeunes Restaurateurs d’Europe)

In 2017, Ana Roš received the award “World's Best Female Chef”. The Slovenian creates each of her avant-garde dishes as a unique composition - always based on her philosophy: “Territory, season and myself”. The natural treasures - her ingredients - are literally growing on her doorstep. Her restaurant Hiša Franko is located in the small town of Kobarid, in a picturesque valley with unspoilt meadows, lakes, rivers and forests. A secret spot for gourmets until, in 2016, the Netflix series “Chef’s Table” introduced Ana Roš’ art of cookery and almost overnight she became world famous. Ever since, her table reservation list has literally been bursting at the seams.

Now aged 44, Ana Roš taught herself to cook. In her youth, she was part of the national Yugoslavian ski team before studying International Science in Triest in neighboring Italy. But in 2003, instead of starting a diplomatic career, she made the courageous decision - along with her husband and sommelier Valter Kramar - to take over his parents’ restaurant in Kobarid.
