After years of fantastic life experiences all over the world, I am now ready for a new big change, a DREAM COME TRUE!
OPENING MY OWN RESTAURANT, together with a skilled and renowned Sarajevo personality , Vedran Kosic.
Sarajevo offers great touristic sights, some very good local food restaurants, great bars, but it lacks the one different place, for a fine dining, bistronomie experience.... and this is what Vedran and I will provide you soon.
We are presently in the middle of renovation works of the future restaurant and planning our menu. Though I have some fundings, I need your support to make this dream come true!
About the Chefs:
Vedran and I met 6 months ago and immediately shared our love of good food while lamenting not having many options of fine dining here in Sarajevo. Now we want to make things right... and delicious.
Vedran has an extensive experience in hospitality management, as a Chef but also as a business manager. He trained professionally in 2017 at Institut Paul Bocuse in Lyon. Follow him on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/chefvedran/
After 7 years in Swiss private banking, 15 years with the International Committee of the Red Cross, in 2014 I decided to take a radical turn and trained to be a Chef. I have all certifications to open a restaurant and took various extended classes in Paris at Atelier des Chefs. After a soft start as a Chef at Home and caterer in Geneva, I moved in 2015 with my family to Sarajevo. It took me some time to find my ways around and to be ready for this new adventure. In the meantime I started a blog (http://foodbyflore.com) and fed my Instagram account (https://www.instagram.com/foodbyflore/)
NOW ITS THE TIME TO DO IT! With your support.
Hvala, Merci, Thank you, Grazie, Terima Kasih, Obrigada, Gracias, Danke, Spasibo.....

Dear friends, you will find hereunder a message that most of you have already received privately. It is in french as most of you are french speakers. In a nutshell it says that as of early June, I left BistroNomie. For many reasons I had to make this painful choice.. . . . .
Three weeks on!Update posted by flore blancpain filipovic at 09:59 am
Dear Friends, BistroNomie Sarajevo opened 3 weeks ago and I have since been very silent because super busy. So the dream came through, thanks also to all your contributions. The road is long, paved with surprises and adjustments to be made. But I love my new place. The first two. . . . .
