On May 20th, a Gault & Millau event took place at the Best Western Premier Hotel Slon – Knowledge Under the Toque. It is the first in a series of training events where the Gault & Millau gastronomic guide and Slovenian Tourist Board raise awareness of the importance of the comprehensive experience of hospitality.
The event was attended by more than a hundred young chefs, waiters and students of Slovenian catering and culinary schools and faculties. They were inspired by the practical workshops with chefs Tomaž Bevčič and Jure Tomič. By sharing her path “Through thorns to the stars”, chef Ana Roš additionally provided a good measure of motivation to the young for creating one’s own story of success. The whole event in the conference hall was also broadcast live through Slon’s new OLED video wall, where the cameramen simultaneously shared the cooking creations of both chefs. In this way, the participants had the opportunity to really follow the cooking masterpieces very closely.
In the hotel industry, hoteliers are often confronted with the problem of lack of hotel staff and are actively trying to make the profession of the waiter valued once again. Hotel Slon welcomes any initiative for sustainable improvements in this area and is proud to have had the opportunity to host this strategically important set of educational events.
