If you’ve ever wanted to write yourself into the gastronomic history of Slovenia then you now have a chance. The organisers of Gourmet November in Ljubljana have announced a competition to discover a culinary invention, one which will give the winning dish the title of the New Flavour of Ljubljana 2019.

At least three of the following ingredients (and as many of your own choice) have to be included in a competing recipe:

1. Carniolan elongated turnip (kranjska podolgovata repa)
2. Sauer kraut from Trnovo (trnovsko kislo zelje)
3. Radič (not specified which one)
4. Yellow carrots of Ljubljana
5. Walnuts
6. Locally produced honey
7. Carniolan sausage (kranjska klobasa)

Study the list, imagine the flavours, textures, colours and behaviours of the potential ingredients, and let your imagination run wild in the kitchen. When your work is done upload your recipe together with a picture of the final dish using this form by November 13 2019.

An online vote will follow, which will run until November 20. The recipe with the most votes will become one of the three finalists, the other two selected by a three-member expert panel. All three finalists will be announced on November 21st.

The three finalists will get the opportunity to showcase their creativity and culinary skill live at the November Gourmet Finals on November 22, 2019. The winner will be awarded a €200 shopping voucher from Maxi Gourmet shop and their dish will get the honourable title of the New Flavour of Ljubljana 2019. The second placed winner will receive a dinner for two in the Maxim restaurant, and the third placed will receive a dinner for two in Romansa Restaurant in Ljubljana. All three contestants will also receive a package of prizes from the event’s sponsors.
