Menu

You can choose from a variety of seasonal menus (including vegetarian, vegan, raw, diet menu, etc.) prepared in a traditional way. In the Baron kitchen, we use many native cultivated and wild plants, so that our menus are varied and interesting in every season. As we use seasonal ingredients, there might be an occasional change to our menus. Our dishes are home-made from the scratch – therefore, advance booking is essential.

Baron stews and soups – the taste of tradition

POHORJE STEW
  • A dish made by our grandmothers who had little imagination, but a lot of culinary experience. The dish contains at least one type of corn and a legume, organic Pohorje beef, smoked pork, and various vegetables and spices, as well as other ingredients including cider and sour cream. It can also be prepared as a vegetarian dish.
HISTORICAL STEW
  • An ancient stew from the Bronze Age based on the local archaeological heritage – a historical Heriterra dish. The stew is made from spelt/emmer wheat, beef, carrots, kohlrabi, onions, mushrooms, garlic, mangold, parsley, savory, juniper berries and lentils. It can also be prepared as a vegetarian dish.
BUCKWHEAT POLENTA WITH MUSHROOM SOUP
  • This is the right choice if you want to eat a simple and traditional dish from our ancestors. Polenta is one of the simplest and most popular Slovenian dishes, especially when it is made from buckwheat flour and dressed with cracklings. However, if we leave out the cracklings, we have a healthy dish that is great as a side dish with sour milk, mushroom soup, cabbage and chicken stew.

Only for closed groups of 10 or more. We can also prepare other delicious stews and soups
(jota – sauerkraut and bean stew, Szegedin goulash, sour soup).
