The creative head chef of the Masné krámy restaurant can boast a 14-year long foreign experience in the Bavarian hotel of Bayerischer Hof, which was selected for the Michelin guidebook. He began working in this hotel from scratch, gradually making his way up to the position of assistant head chef where he then worked for several years. His experience was also acquired by helping to prepare so-called “culinary trips” to various destinations worldwide for the guests, which were special thematic evening buffets of various cuisines. During his professional career, he often prepared menus for interesting personalities of the German show business. Furthermore, he also cooked for HRH Bavarian Prince Leopold and prepared a menu for the Czech ex-President Václav Havel, who visited the Masné krámy restaurant in 2008. He likes cooking Czech cuisine as well as venison dishes and specialises in preparing uncommon types of fish and Mediterranean dishes as well. He spends his leisure time fishing, playing golf and being with his family.
