She was named World's Best Female Chef in 2017 by the World's 50 Best Restaurants, and Hiša Franko was ranked as one of the world's 50 best restaurants.

Over the past few years, she has held over 600 interviews, including the latest in the New York Times, in a series “Transforming Spaces” about women driving change in sometimes unexpected places.
