Minh Chau Luongová

Minh is a newcomer to our team and will be your guide on Vietnamese courses. She is also a guide in Prague Sapa, where she will guide you through various corners of Sapa and show you the beauties of Vietnam, especially culture, food and customs. She successfully graduated from university, with a focus on economics, and earned extra money from schooling with a guide. After its successful completion, she joined the bank, but her work in the office did not fill her. She missed work outside, guiding. After much deliberation, she decided to resign at the bank and began to devote herself to guiding and cooking to the fullest.

Ladislav Floreán

Despite his young age, Ladislav Floreán is a chef with extensive experience from the best restaurants in Europe. He does the work with enthusiasm, which he serves to his guests together with great food. He has worked in restaurants such as The Clove Club and Fat Duck in Great Britain, Silvio Nickol Gourmet Restaurant in Vienna or Field in Prague, as well as in restaurants of the multinational hotel chains Radisson Blu, Maritime and Intercontinental.

Jana Horešovská

Jan is the youngest member of our cooking school. Right after graduating he headed down the classic path of becoming a chef, but in time found that being inside a kitchen all day long was not what he had always dreamed of. So he forged his own, more entertaining path, and cooking not only became his job, but also his hobby. You may have already met Jan in the Chefparade Foodtruck, which has traveled all over the Czech Republic and also to other countries.  Rather than sitting on his laurels, Jan continues to learn so that you will get the latest information from the world of gastronomy in his cooking classes.

Jan Hajný

Jan is an expert in the area of culinary artistry and advertising food styling. Above all, he is an outstanding sushiman. When instructing at the cooking school he draws upon many years of experience as well as participation in gastronomical competitions, where he has been awarded over 17 medals. He considers his greatest success to be winning the gold medal in the Culinary Olympics.

At Chefparade you can meet Jan in our sushi, fish and meat  cooking classes.

Monika Křemenová

Monika likes to say that a few years ago she didn’t even make a cake and now the confectionery is her life. She originally had an economic education and worked for many years as an office “mouse”. Over time, she moved from an office chair to a blender, which became not only a hobby, but also a job. Monika has her own brand Domácí Pečeníčko, which deals with the custom production of cakes and especially macaroons. She also devoted 3 years to them, during which she tried to get to know them and hone to perfection – which she did, now she has tens of thousands of them successfully baked on her account.

Lukáš Jeništa

Lukáš specialises in Mediterranean cuisine, has extensive catering experience, works as a head chef for a multi-national company and has also worked while traveling abroad. He takes part in various gastronomical festivals and for the GCHP – USA Fall Tour 2015 he was the Global Chef for the entire Czech Republic.

Jan Křídlo

Jan is the youngest member of our cooking school. Right after graduating he headed down the classic path of becoming a chef, but in time found that being inside a kitchen all day long was not what he had always dreamed of. So he forged his own, more entertaining path, and cooking not only became his job, but also his hobby. You may have already met Jan in the Chefparade Foodtruck, which has traveled all over the Czech Republic and also to other countries.  Rather than sitting on his laurels, Jan continues to learn so that you will get the latest information from the world of gastronomy in his cooking classes.

Jan Rambousek

Jan never went to culinary school or gathered cooking experience abroad. But thanks to his hard work and passion for food he reached the final seven of the first broadcast of the MasterChef competition. This opened doors for him in the world of haute cuisine and he was able to work with several top chefs. Jan is all about the “Why”. If you want to learn why onions take forever to turn brown and then, the moment you turn your back they’re burned, or why yeast leavens dough instead of making alcohol, then his cooking courses are for you!

Lukáš Neckář

Lukáš specialises in Asian cuisine, especially sushi and Vietnamese food. To increase his knowledge of exotic flavors, he learns from local chefs. His expertise was put to good use in compiling the new menu for the Sushitime Company. During his 15 years as a chef he has worked for Duplex, Hot – Barock group and La Scéne restaurants. In addition to Asian food, he has also tried his hand at Czech, Italian and French cuisine. He spent two seasons in France, where he fell in love with the food of Provence.
