The best restaurant, female and male chefs, and young talent will be chosen in October. 

As the STA reported on January 9, 2018, the influential French restaurant guide Gault & Millau will expand the list of countries where it rates restaurants this year. As of October, Slovenian restaurants and chefs will also be graded, while the Slovenian edition of the guide will also present local wine varieties and various home-made products.

Gault & Millau is one of the most important culinary guides next to the Michelin Guide. "It's not an elitist guide that would rate only the most prestigious restaurants," the director of Gault & Millau Slovenija, Mira Šemić, told the press on Tuesday.

The best restaurant, best female and male chefs, and the best young talent will be picked by October, the acclaimed sommelier said.

Restaurants are graded by ordinary people based on the quality of the food, with comments about service, price and the atmosphere of the restaurant given separately. They take photographs of the food and their bill, so that every visit is registered.

Gault Millau rates on a scale of one to twenty, with twenty highest. Restaurants below ten points are almost never listed.

The goal is to create added value for restaurants and to present restaurant options to tourists, the young and other visitors, said Come de Cherisey, the owner and chairman of Gault & Millau.

Gastronomy is a key product of the Slovenian tourism and this is a big step for the promotion of Slovenia, head of the Slovenian Tourist Board Maja Pak said.

Slovenian cuisine attracted international attention at the start of last year, when chef Ana Roš of the Hiša Franko restaurant in the western town of Kobarid was declared the World's Best Female Chef by the World's 50 Best Restaurants culinary portal.
