Chef Erman and owners Kunst will be coming to Cleveland from the restaurant Gostilna Šempeter whcih features traditional Slovenian food with a modern twist. Gostilna Šempeter is known for it's specialization in "Kopun" - also known as Capon - which are specially raised roosters which are appreciated for their soft white meat. Kopun is a traditional dish with a long history within the Kozjansko area, where Gostilna Šempeter is located.
  • David Kocab - Chef de Cuisine at The Black Pig in Ohio City, Cleveland. Born-and-raised in Cleveland, Chef Kocab attended culinary school in Portland, OR, followed by work in Los Angeles.
