Immigrant Foodways: Czech Open-faced Sandwiches


Chef Tom Slepicka is offering the five class course of Classic and Modern Czech Cuisine I once again. Here is your chance to join, if you missed it last time and enjoy a premier cooking class from the comfort of your home.

Traditional Czech open-faced sandwiches are not just very delicious, but also very pretty and very rare—there is no place in the US where you can buy them. In this course, you will learn the techniques and tricks necessary to make this rare food at home!

Note: This meal is suitable for vegetarians too – use cheese and vegetables and avoid deli and other kinds of meat.

Tom 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. During his years in the catering industry in Europe, he focused on providing a fine-dining experience utilizing world cuisine. He moved to the USA with his wife in 2014. In 2015 – 2016, he operated the Czech Deli at the NewBo City Market. The goal of his courses is to make tasty and high-quality meals more accessible to everyone.
