If you’ve been to Ljubljana on a Friday during the warmer months you’ll have come across Open Kitchen, the hottest spot in town for a meal outside and your choice from dozens of stalls run by notable local restaurants, cafés and food producers. It’s a great place to enjoy lunch or dinner, or just get a drink and take in the atmosphere of a community at play, something to make you feel good and ready for the weekend.

So as we enter last days of another strange and unusual summer the welcome news is that the team behind Open Kitchen is taking the fun on tour, with four events on Saturdays around Slovenia – in Novo mesto, Ptuj, Vipava and Slovenj Gradec – creating spaces where people can come together and celebrate the simple pleasures of good food, drink and company. The dates and locations are below, and note that Open Kitchen will still be in Ljubljana every Friday until the end of October, weather and COVID restrictions permitting.
11 September: Glavni trg in Novo mesto,
18 September: Mestni trg in Ptuj,
25 September: atrium of Lanthieri Mansion in Vipava
2 October: Trg svobode and Glavni trg in Slovenj Gradec
