Gelinaz Stay In with Ana Roš

Gelinaz, the chef’s collective,  are back in town on the 3rd December. But this time, they are not travelling, they are staying “at home”. What travels this time, are their recipes. Each chef had to submit eight recipes that are typical for him/her, but she/he never served them at the restaurant yet. Those recipes were then shuffled and sent to another chef who will remix them in his/her own way and serve on the 3rd of December, for one night only, dishes inspired by those recipes to her/his guests. The guests and the chef will get to know whose recipes was interpreting the chef only at the end of the dinner through the Gelinaz ambassador who will attend the dinner (I will be that night the ambassador at the Aimsir restaurant in Ireland). Ambassadors will also take care of communication from the restaurants on that night, so if you are curious what is happening on the other side of the world, do follow us on Instagram (mine is here).


Ana Roš has received the recipes. And now?


What was your first thought when you read the recipes you received?

Well,  I found myself at home completely displaced, so home was not home anymore – it means that I am actually really flying. The recipes are not of my culture so I am honestly asking my elf where I am going to get ingredients, techniques and inspiration. But that is the challenge and so that is such a “Gelinaz – Andrea Petrini” inspired challenge.

What do you think of them now?

I still find them mission impossible. 

If you had to choose an animal to describe them, what would it be?

Honestly, I feel as a rabbit and the recipes look like an amazing beautiful duck. 

How will you approach it?

With my muscles. 

What will be the greatest challenge for you in this Gelinaz project?

To stay at home, I guess.

And what are you looking forward to?

I am really looking forward to challenging myself to a cuisine I don’t know, to the recipes that haven’t been written by me, that are opening so many new doors that I am not really sure what is behind. But I will not be a good girl. Expect some revolutions.

After this event is behind you, what’s the next thing?

Are you trying to ask me if I am staying home?

Ana will cook at Hiša Franko in Kobarid. Tickets are sold out, but you can join the waiting list here.
