Participate in the events, a series of culinary events organised by Kempinski Palace Portorož, where each summer, a number of internationally recognised chefs take over the kitchen of the Restaurant Sophia and blow everybody away with their specialities.

Savour the taste of the delicious dishes prepared by legendary chefs in the unique environment of our historic Restaurant Sophia. This year we celebrate the fifth consecutive year of Guest Chef events.

The 2018 season will start with  Matthias Schmidberger, Executive Chef at the Kempinski Grand Hotel des Bains, St. Moritz.

Immerse in the gastronomic journey of the young, enthusiastic and strongly passionate Chef Matthias, who is driven by the motto “Who stops getting better has stopped being good.”

In collaboration with his team, he cooked up the first star of the highly esteemed Michelin Guide 2012. Texture, consistency and flavour of first-class products are at the forefront of his skilled cooking techniques.

When asked for the reason behind his career choice, he answers:
"What is a better profession than one that appeals so intensely to all five senses and one that refines them daily with new experiences and tastes,"
