Perched above Slovenia's capitol city of Ljubljana in the castle of the same name, Lenny Russo (below, right) and chef Igor Jagodic (below, left) prepared a collaborative dinner at Strelec Restaurant, with wines from Movia Winery, for the enjoyment of guests of the U.S. Embassy and local chefs, restaurateurs and business people.
