The show’s presenter, Uroš Bitenc, has already visited her at home and tried all eight of the best recipes selected by the jury. ”Some recipes have blown me away and at every show I’ve had something that surprises me. If it wasn’t the hospitality or the beautiful place I was in, it was the creations of these women. The recipes were presented by the two grandmothers, who have seen them cooking and baking for many generations, and by young girls who are just starting out. However, the recipes themselves were amazing. If it was up to me, we’d put all these recipes on the shelves,” says Uroš enthusiastically.
But there can only be one winner and the battle for the best is already on. After all eight candidates will present their delicacies in eight different shows Naj slovensko pecivo, which you can watch on M SOSESKA, the expert jury will select three finalists, whose desserts Mercator will put on their shelves.

What are the judges looking for in the candidates?
Chef Polona Klančnik says she will look for something special and outstanding in the winning recipe. Maybe it’s an ingredient you wouldn’t even think of in a certain traditional pastry. As she says, recipes are her passion and she takes a keen interest in creating masterpieces out of dusty books, the history of the recipes and the little secrets that give the finishing touch to the end result.
Your co-moderator, Prof. DR. Janez Bogataj, expects the recipe creators to know about the nutritional heritage of pastry in Slovenia and be aware of this richness, in which pastry creators will look for their own interpretations.
As the show’s host told us, one of the contestants also did very well: ” In Primorska we stayed with a lady who works as a confectioner and takes care of the sweet program and prepared such dishes and had such equipment that I just looked at. She changed the design of such a traditional Slovenian pastry in such a way that you could see the dish in a luxury hotel and not guess that it is a traditional Slovenian pastry. Until I tried. Because I would recognize them by their taste. Great. The candidates mostly got the model we were looking for, so we have a traditional recipe that has something of its own, something new, fresh.” Be it in terms of design or taste.
Fortunately, despite the excellent desserts that host Uroš Bitenc tried, he says he didn’t gain any extra kilos. ”I took good care of the crowd and didn’t gain much weight,” joked.
