OUTDOOR KITCHEN AND EVENINGS BY THE FIRE
What better way to end an exciting day of exploring the wild nature than to relax in good company with some authentic traditional food and a glass of excellent wine? At dinnertime we invite you to hang out by the fire pit in the Residence Soča garden. On autumn evenings you can enjoy the warmth of the flames from the fireplaces. Next to the fire, you will have everything you need to roast chestnuts or sugar cookies. It’s time to socialize with a glass of mulled wine or hot tea!
In the summer kitchen, there is a ceramic grill Joe BigJoe available – a grill, smoker, and oven in one, ready to use in just 15 minutes. The sturdy ceramic, which is about 3 cm thick, perfectly regulates and maintains the grill’s heat, allowing you to cook at both low and extremely high temperatures (82-400 degrees and more). The exceptional porosity of the ceramic maintains the moisture of the meat, making the cooked food incredibly juicy and enriched with the true aroma of the grill. Because of its size, the BigJoe II will be the first choice for all lovers of full tables and barbecue enthusiasts.
The outdoor kitchen is not operational during the winter months.
“LET’S COOK TOGETHER!”
In the Soča Valley, people used to know and want to eat well. And the tradition passed from generation to generation, both in written and oral form. When the home kitchen smells, few can resist the famous culinary specialties such as chompe and cottage cheese, frika, delicious Kobariški štruklji and Bovški krafi, as well as centuries-prized cheeses with protected origin – Tolminc and Bovški sir.
We fill our “Let’s cook together” basket with ingredients for preparing frika or chomp, which are suitable for a quick, tasty lunch or dinner.
Čompe and skuta
Potatoes with salty sheep’s curd is a simple and very popular appetizer in Bovec. A traditional, regionally original, organically produced appetizer consists of chomp (boiled unpeeled potatoes) and salty sheep’s curd. It used to be on the tables of the Trenta and Bovec people almost every day, as the poor land did not allow the cultivation of cereals and other crops. And although the dish is completely simple, at first glance almost poor, it impresses every eater with its excellent taste.
Frika is a typical dish from Friuli Venezia Giulia, the capital of fried cheese called frico. However, there is no single, traditional recipe for frika. Each part of the Soča Valley left its mark, gave it its own character, and several versions of frika were created: with potatoes in the form of an omelette, with onions, leeks, eggs, bacon, salami, apples and various herbs. The only ‘required ingredient’ is processed cheese.
