We had the best time at our cooking class. Špela is a wonderful teacher and so welcoming. We had such a great time chatting and cooking with her. We take a cooking class wherever we travel and both agreed this was one of our favorite. Loved that she shared some family recipes with us - struklji was my favorite local dish - the one we made with Špela was the best I had all week (and I ate a lot of struklji while in Slovenia ;). The recipes really are possible to make back at home. In fact, I've already tried my hand at some and they've turned out great. We also really enjoyed sampling all her homemade liqueurs. If you are visiting Ljubljana definitely make sure you book a cooking class with Špela!

We have done cooking classes around Europe and they are all different. We really enjoyed our class with Spela and were so glad she found time for us during the busy Christmas holidays. Our evening went very quickly - we enjoyed learning about traditional Slovenian food and the wine. The food we made was traditional but tasty and things we should be able to replicate at home with minor ingredient changes. While we have experience cooking I think this class is perfect for all levels; Spela makes cooking accessible and you also learn so much about Slovenia and its food culture. If you have time, you wouldn't miss a workshop with Spela.
My wife and I joined this cooking class during our visit to Ljubljana, and had a fantastic night! The class not only provided instruction on making some delicious traditional dishes, but also was an insight into Slovenian culture. We had a great time with Špela, and particularly enjoyed trying her own handmade liqueurs. We would happily recommend to others, and would love to come back someday to do one of her countryside food and wine tours!
We had an amazing evening learning, laughing and cooking with Špela! I would highly recommend this. Špela was so welcoming. The evening was so much fun, really relaxed but super organised and we made delicious Slovenian dishes. We had so many questions for Špela who was happy to talk to us at length and gave us lots of advice. We enjoyed sitting down eating our prepared meals and trying different Slovenian wines. Would do it again!
