Chef Luka Peternel

The Planinka restaurant is run by Chef Luka Peternel. After gaining experience in a Belgian Michelin-starred restaurant, he devoted himself to working in his hometown. He uses the best local ingredients when creating his plates. With his creations, he conjures up the authenticity of the environment of the Upper Savinja Valley for every guest.

Short Curriculum Vitae:

I have been saying since I was a child that I would be a chef and so I became one, because the desire was really great. The first time I entered the kitchen, the chef Marjan Jeraj told me: “Have an excursion today and see everything in the kitchen, we will start cooking tomorrow”. Thus began the accumulation of knowledge, which I drew to a great extent. I went to the high school for hospitality and tourism in Novo mesto, where I also continued the higher vocational school and successfully completed it. While studying, I met Robert Gregorčič – Oštarija Herbelier, who opened a new perspective on what I am doing now. After studying, I also upgraded my knowledge abroad, at the La Truffe Noire restaurant in Brussels with Chef Erik Lindelauf. After returning to my hometown, I transferred my knowledge to the kitchen of the Planinka hotel and started creating my own plates.

Wine tasting and Wine cellar

There are certain journeys that are always worth your while – no matter the weather and the season. How about a short trip to Hotel Planinka’s wine cellar – where bottles of local Slovenian and international wines are stored? From table wines to the most precious gems the vineyards of the world have ever produced. Our small wine cellar is ideal for pampering your guests in a very special ambience.
