Learn to create and cook your own fine dining dishes at home and plate them with elegance
From food enthusiasts to seasoned home cooks, my cooking mentoring seeks to help ambitious food lovers to transform simple ingredients into fine dining masterpieces.
Oozing with food passion, the online mentoring program will encourage you to create beautifully prepared dishes at home while learning basic fine dining cooking techniques.
Whether you crave change in your kitchen or wish to delight your friends and family with a memorable culinary experience, this mentoring program will help you delve into fine dining. Through 1-on-1 online mentoring, I will assist you in tieing together every tiny detail that leads to iconic dishes.
Instead of following pre-designed recipes, I will teach you all the important techniques you need to know so you can develop your own recipes and create an eclectic blend of flavors, aromas, textures, and visual splendor.
Combining deep cooking expertise with exceptional teaching ability, I am here to help you overcome the average at-home cooking standard and create inspiring dishes with Michelin star-worthy taste and look.
Why settle for the same soulless recipes when you can become the master of your personally-inspired dishes? Put on your apron, roll on our sleeves, and give your taste palette something to remember!
My name is Michal Kováč and I am 32 years old. Before I started my mentoring 2 years ago I spent 12 years in fine dining restaurants including restaurants with Michelin stars.
I did not learn cooking from books. I had to learn the hard way. Worked thousands of hours in fine dining restaurants to learn how to cook properly.
Working 16 hours a day with no breaks in a Michelin star restaurant just because I wanted to see how it is working on the top level. Hundreds of days full of stress and hard work with one of the best chefs in the world.
But you don’t have to!
With my guidance, you will be able in just a few months to learn more about fine dining cooking than most home cooks in their whole lives.
The plan and structure of the mentoring will be made personally for you depending on your needs and goals, but mentoring is always long-term (at least 8 weeks). In a shorter period of time, I am not able to teach you anything properly.
I am going to teach you everything personally via video calls.
The plan of the mentoring can be adjusted depending on your goals and equipment. But in general, you need just basic stuff like an oven, blender, pan, pot, strainer, peeler, and knife.
Then if you tell me you have for example blue torch, sous vide, ice cream machine, molds… we will use them if you want to. If you don’t have them, we don’t need them. They are not crucial for mentoring and learning to cook in general.
Mentoring is primary for amateur home cooks. But it can be also used with private chefs who would like to learn how to cook fine dining dishes for their clients at home.
If you are a professional chef working in a restaurant and your plan is to be a top-class chef, I would recommend you to find a good restaurant with a good head chef and learn there, that will be a much better way for you.
The point of the mentoring is for you to learn to cook the food you or your friends/family like, not what I like. Taste is a very personal thing.
My goal is not to teach you to cook just the same things as I do. My goal is to teach you everything important you need so you can develop your own cooking and plating style.
My goal is to get you to the point that you don’t need me anymore and you can enjoy cooking and creating your own dishes without me but with understanding what you are doing.
I am not able to tell you the exact price now as I don’t know what we will do and for how long. Mentoring is personally made for every person separately.
So I recommend you to apply bellow and when I find out your situation and make a plan for you, then I can tell you a price for it.
You have to be able to invest at least 2-3 hours per week in cooking + 1 hour for our call.
But of course, the more time you spend cooking, the better results you get.
Of course I cannot guarantee you that you will be a Michelin star chef overnight. There are different people with different starting skills and the amount of time and energy they will put into the mentoring.
But I can guarantee you that if you will execute our steps and you take the mentoring seriously your dishes before and after will be like night and day.
My mentoring is not that much about cuisines, as about fine dining techniques. Because things like, how to:
Are everywhere the same. Important is to learn different techniques and then you can use them in any cuisine you like.
But in general, I have been trained in European/French restaurants so if you would like to learn how to make sushi, dumplings, or kung pao I am not the person for you.
If your English is at the communication level, you have an internet connection, a place to cook, time, money, and energy to invest in learning and cooking, the mentoring is for you. The country doesn’t matter.
Create fine dining dishes that are a feast for the eyes & an unexpected surprise for the taste buds.
