Ana Roš of Hiša Franko in Kobarid, Slovenia has been named as The World’s Best Female Chef 2017 ahead of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants awards ceremony in Melbourne, Australia on 5 April.

Accepting the prestigious accolade, Roš added: “The award came as a surprise to me. It is a big responsibility to accept this award, especially as a self-taught cook, but the recognition provides an opportunity for people to reassess Slovenia as an interesting gastronomic destination.”

The self-taught chef and former ski champion took over the family business with her sommelier husband Valter in 2000 marking the start of her culinary journey. Housed in a historic 1860 building the family run restaurant in Slovenia’s Soca Valley, on the Italian-Slovenian border, allows Ana to showcase Slovenia’s culinary heritage and ingredients in a sophisticated and seasonal menu.

William Drew, Group Editor of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants, said, “Ana Roš is a very worthy recipient of this year’s World’s Best Female Chef honour. Her precision, attention to detail and imagination distinguish her as a true leader in global gastronomy. Her passion for local ingredients, her investment in people and her commitment to elevating the culinary arts in her native Slovenia make her an inspirational role model.”

Roš follows in the footsteps of a series of world renown female chefs in holding the prestigious title, including Dominique Crenn in 2016, who also mentored the S.Pellegrino Young Chef 2016 winner as well as Hélène Darroze (2015), Helena Rizzo (2014), Elena Arzak (2013).

Ana Roš will receive her award at The World’s 50 Best Restaurants ceremony at the historic Royal Exhibition Building in Melbourne on 5 April 2017.
