Jorg Zupan is a master chef with a special attitude to tradition, ingredients and the world-class cuisine, which he aims to make more familiar to people at the Atelje restaurant through a relaxed atmosphere. Without any tablecloths, bow ties or gloves, without the pompous food introductions or the unrelatable know-it-all wisecracking… Jorg lives for his culinary creations, which guests get to enjoy without the unnecessary add-ons. Such is the philosophy of the master chef, who has sharpened his skills in the best Ireland-, London-, Australia- and Norway-based restaurants. His calmness achieved through the many years of experience and his unselfish sharing of the knowledge with the members of his team make him one of Slovenia's top chefs.
