About the Chef

slika 11

The star of Restaurant Maxim is the young chef Peter Kovač, who improved on the creations of famous chefs before him. Peter is a modern, sophisticated in the world of culinary art, and technically skilled chef who brought fresh change and many ideas for new dishes. Upon arrival at the head of this prestigious Ljubljana restaurant, he provided quite a few novelties, but the foundation still remains French cuisine with a touch of Mediterranean and local cuisine, because Peter enjoys using local ingredients and methods of meal preparation in his creations. Three times a year he and his team completely renew and refresh Maxim's menu. The dessert menu is also upgraded every time to offer even more sophisticated and spectacular items. Of course, such dishes deserve the best wines, which is why the wine list is carefully examined and updated each year. The emphasis lies primarily on local, Slovenian wines that are light and fresh.
