Czech Soups: Kulajda and Leek Soup

Our popular virtual cooking classes are back!

In this class, we are going to focus on two very original and traditional Czech Soups that will definitely become your favorite! The first is Kulajda, a creamy and lightly sweet and sour mushroom soup with potatoes and dill served with a hardboiled egg. The second soup is an equally delicious leek soup. Any soup lover or anyone who wants to get warm with a delicious soup in the winter months will get a lot out of this class.

Note: This meal is suitable for vegetarians too – use vegetable broth instead of chicken.

Cook and eat an authentic Czech and Slovak dish from the comfort of your home. Join us on Zoom and learn from Czech-born Chef Tom Slepicka in these hands-on interactive classes.

Slepicka graduated from culinary school in his hometown, Brno, located in the Czech Republic. While still in school, he established a successful full-service catering company, which operated in the Czech Republic, Slovak Republic, and Austria. Slepicka moved to the U.S. with his wife in 2014. From 2015-16, he operated the Czech Deli at the NewBo City Market. The goal of his courses is to make tasty and high-quality meals accessible to everyone.
