Chef Tomaž Kavčič
Tomaž Kavčič‘s dishes know flavors, aromas, textures and combinations. The master of culinary creation uses techniques, effects and stories that involve all the senses of our experience. He appreciates domestic, local and supports Slovenian stories.
Tomaž also supports the story of the Kocbek oil mill, as he recognized our passion, tradition and effort with which our family has been engaged since 1929.
The chef is also aware that family is very important, and he also found inspiration for his cooking in the dishes of his mother and grandmother. Gostila Lojze is based on a long tradition and was first mentioned in 1897. Each generation has added something unique and meaningful to their dishes. With all the harmonious and sophisticated tastes of the Vipava Valley, the soul is felt in the dishes, with which they still prepare meals today.
Tomaž Kavčič danes slovi kot pesnik okusov, tehnologij kuhanja in vrhunskih sestavin. Ljubi Vipavsko dolino, ki jo ponosno pokaže vsakemu – na krožniku. Ni je jedi v tej gostilni, ki ne bi trkala na bogato lokalno tradicijo. Vsaka jed nastane najprej v njegovi glavi, nato jo drzno preizkusi še na kuhinjskem terenu.

Bio štajersko prekmursko pumpkin seed oil
Organically grown pumpkin seeds in the process of hot-pressing provide an authentic taste of this oil, which comes from where the pumpkins feel best.

There is no seed treatment in the cold pressing process. The seeds are not ground, heated or roasted, but the oil is squeezed from the whole seeds with a special press, unlike the method of hot pressing, where the seeds are roasted and mechanically processed.
