Event Description

This holiday season, learn how to make a traditional Czech meal and lots of desserts from Czech-born Chef Tom Slepicka. Join us for our first Czech and Slovak Christmas Cooking and Baking Series, and enjoy a premier cooking class from the comfort of your home.

In this final cookie class, we will focus on the Maybeetle. This outstanding cookie includes a delicate meringue top and a rich chocolate-rum cream. You can attend this course without having attended its’ predecessor.

Note: Suitable for vegetarians. This class is on a Monday evening and is three hours long.

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.
