Hi, I’m Michal.
I help home cooks to make tasty 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.
Discover how to swap ingredients so you can cook and bake with ease.
