Summary/Abstract: Culinary arts are an important part of every nation’s culture. The goal of the following article is to discuss the linguistic‑cultural view of the Slovene culinary arts from an auto‑ stereotypical point of view of the Slovene people. For the analysis, the authors used the operational categories of a Polish ethnolinguistic school, while the article is based on academic surveys. The article differentiates two thematic circles, which reconstruct the image of Slovene culinary arts: 1) the general characteristics of Slovene cuisine, 2) specific dishes, ingredients, drinks, etc. The linguistic worldview captured in the discourse on culinary identity is one of the main factors influencing the cultural identity of a given community.
