About the Series

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

The following class will include the preparation of traditional Slovak halušky with bacon, Czech meatloaf called “Sekana”, traditional Czech larger pretzels, and as a sweet end, you will learn to prepare “Buchticky s kremem” – a Czech sweet main course or dessert, that is unlike anything you’ve ever tried.
