Hi, I’m Michal.
I help home cooks to make tasty vegetarian food using simple ingredients and easy-to-follow steps.
Originally from Prague and now based in L.A., I love mixing up my favorite Czech childhood recipes (hey koláče) with everyday California dishes (hello avo toast) and sharing them on this blog.
