Culinary royalty to grace Dark Mofo Winter Feast in Hobart

Hobart's Dark Mofo festival has pulled off a culinary coup by enticing one of Europe's leading chefs to Tasmania for its Winter Feast.

This culinary superstar is not from France, or Italy, but from Slovenia: world renowned Ana Roš from Hiša Franko has for the past decade been regarded as one of the world's most innovative pan handlers.

She will join Rodney Dunn and Stephen Peak from The Agrarian Kitchen to showcase the best of Tasmanian produce in an exciting collaboration.

For those not familiar with Roš, she is the chef/patron of Slovenia’s two Michelin starred Hiša Franko and has been named ambassador of gastronomic tourism by the World Tourism Organisation.

Roš featured in the Netflix documentary Chef's Table, and named world's best female chef by The World's 50 Best Restaurants academy in 2017.

Her restaurant Hiša Franko was named one of the world’s best 30 restaurants by Travel + Leisure.

This remarkable talent speaks Slovenian, English, Italian, French, Croatian and Spanish fluently and "some" German

The City of Hobart Dark Mofo Winter Feast returns for its 10th year with eight nights of feasting and entertainment over two weeks.

The dates are June 8-11 and June 15-18 and there will be 90 stallholders, fire, music, and fun.

The events will be spreading across Salamanca Lawns and Princes Wharf Shed 1 on the Hobart waterfront.

“Both Ana Roš and The Agrarian Kitchen have elevated regional dining in their respective countries by taking a bold and innovative approach to their food," says Winter Feats food curator Amanda Vallis.

"We’re thrilled to be able to highlight such incredible artists of the culinary world.”

The Agrarian Kitchen duo and Roš will be delivering a four-course menu so guests can expect Slovenian-inspired dishes made with seasonal Tasmanian produce.

The dinner will take place in a newly constructed cooking-and-dining structure that seats 50 people around the perimeter, providing an intimate dining experience.
