Vegan Chef

I’m crazy, full of love and here to show you how to cook easy and healthy food. Originally I’m from the Czech Republic, but in 2006 I came to Brighton and I can never forget how excited I was, and still am about this city.

Since 2006 I have cooked in traditional British Pubs and Restaurants starting as a Commis chef, CDP, Junior Sous and Sous Chef… I also had the opportunity to take on the roll of Head Chef for a while until I realized I didn’t want to cook meat any more. I am grateful for all of the experience with international and English Head chefs from gastro, fine dining and Michelin Restaurants but I was always curious about cooking without using animal products. In the kitchen you learn every day but the big challenge for me is Vegan artistic kitchen. I think, make and create something different using mixed spices and herbs in my cooking and finding a new recipe is always very exciting.

Sometimes people ask, why vegan? Well. I have a simple answer. I was fat, I felt like snowman and I also had some health issues. So I started to make some changes and I found out just how amazing it is to be without meat and to feel great. After sometime I began to look at animals with a new, kinder perspective. I now respect them and I am happy when animals have a natural life and freedom.

So back to food… I would like to show you my skills, my creativity and fantasy and I would like to share the love inside me.

Thank You for stopping by and reading. Please let me know how you like the blogs and the recipes.
