WE ARE TASTE OF PRAGUE FOOD TOURS.
We are Zuzi, Jan, Karolina, Anna and Martin. Prague locals and friends who share a passion for food and travel. Honestly, whenever we meet, food takes the centre stage of all our discussions and never leaves. We love food: eating it, discovering it, sharing it.
We started Taste of Prague Food Tours in 2011. Back then, great food in Prague and tourism in Prague did not really overlap: Prague was not known as a food destination and Prague visitors rarely ventured into the places local foodies loved. We wanted to change all that.
We were also all born in Prague. (Except for Zuzi. She’s from Moravia. But hey, nobody’s perfect.) We love the city and we think it’s contagious. Our food tours are just the starting point of what we do: make sure you have a great time in Prague. Our two goals for your Prague stay? (1) You leave loving it. (2) You leave two pounds heavier. At least.
We also have professional and corporate backgrounds that we have left to pursue our passion for food. Zuzi was a lawyer. Jan was a translator. Karolina was a brand manager. Martin was a therapist. Anna… well, she’s always been too passionate about food to even have a corporate past. Good for her.
And we have started Taste of Prague Food Tours to share. Our passion for food. Our love for the city. And some vital information. Things like where you get the best coffee. Which joint sells the messiest burger. And what’s the best jogging route to run all that food off, if you must. (You don’t. Calories don’t count on vacations. It’s a fact.)
What do they say about us:
"Capo di tutti capi.” "Da boss.” „El pimpo.“ Quitting her good lawyer's position in big law to pursue her passion, Zuzi has been running a tight ship ever since. Because she cares. If you’re a friend - or a guest - she will do whatever it takes to make you happy. Because your vacation is her vacation.
Although in possession of a discerning palate, Jan shows the will-power of a 4-year-old when it comes to junk food. Nutella, French fries, burgers and pizza, you name it, he’ll eat it. He loves the stuff and isn't afraid to overshare his dirty secrets. A nerd at heart with an inclination for dad jokes. His biggest life achievements? He was an extra in Barbara Streisand’s Yentl (true) and went to high school with Beyonce (true too).
Have a food question? Just ask Anna, a.k.a. the Food Pioneer. How many inches wide should be the fat layer on a 10-month old Prestice pig? Anna knows. And she loves people who love food. As a food entrepreneur, you'll see Anna on Prague's farmers markets chatting with farmers and other vendors, laughing and creating new bonds. And that's what we love about Anna: she has a gift of connecting people through the food.
We are yet to meet a person who wouldn’t want to have a drink with Karolina ten minutes after meeting her. Yet she is organised and reliable. More than we are. We guess that’s what being a mom of a super cute two-year-old does to you. She’s also an unlimited source of incredibly funny stories and an open book who just loves people. Need a recharge? Just give Karolina some enthusiasm and affection, and you’ll get it back tenfold.
If you want to be friends with Martin, just say "hello". There. You’re friends now. It's that easy. He’s just a big guy with an even bigger heart, and a very interesting back story: how on earth does a psychotherapist with an Austrian passport born in the Czech Republic become a butcher in Prague? Who knows. Well, actually, he does. And he’ll tell you. Other things he'll tell you: where to get the best Pho or the juiciest carnitas in town. Martin just loves food and people, and food and people love him back.
