Slovenian chef shares recipe for success: the discipline

Nestled in a valley just a few miles from the Italian border, Ana Ros' restaurant lures food-lovers from around the world with her quirky dishes: eel with pomegranate, foie gras and field chicory and tripe with fava beans and fried nettles.

Ros, 44, starred on Netflix's Chef's Table last year, since when her Hisa Franko restaurant has been packed.

In April, she picked up her award for the World's Best Female Chef by the World's 50 Best Restaurants.

The former sportswoman, who was a member of the national youth skiing team and had studied to become a diplomat before she began helping her husband Valter Kramar run the family business, says those skills helped her become a successful chef.

"Gastronomy is a sort of art, it is very exact and you need a lot of discipline that comes from sports," she said.

She fell into her cooking career by accident, having canceled a job interview in Brussels to help Kramar with Hisa Franko.

The couple were already food tourists, traveling the world to eat at the best restaurants.

"The food was always fascinating to me but I could not imagine that I would ever make it," Ros said.
