Vlado Pignar


“Chef reviving old recipes”

Ribič is a renowned restaurant located on the banks of the Drava River, and Vlado Pignar has been carrying on its tradition. His culinary philosophy pursues contemporary trends and is based on high-quality, local ingredients. It is important to him to present Ptuj’s culinary scene in the best light possible at fairs, the open kitchen, or at a fancy, white-clothed table. His face lights up, when he finds a forgotten recipe. He recreated the carnival season Kurent soup based on a recipe from the 1950s.
