Our head chef

Michael Zapalač, Head Chef of restaurant Honoria, Chateau Herálec, Boutique Hotel & Spa by L’Occitane

What brought Michal to cooking, was curiosity! He worked at a place, where according to him they cooked to a high-class standard, so he decided to start learning. His ambition to know more brought him to university, but after five semesters he gave it up: studying and working in the kitchen full time did not come together. As he says frankly, he still enjoys it. He perceives a high gastronomy as a discovery path, often hectic, but madly inspirational.

He came to Chateau Herálec as an experienced chef, but after 2 years he left and collected further experience in Prague, Germany, and the USA. Eventually, he returned to the castle and today he and his team are cooking honest Czech cuisine. He loves French techniques, often laborious recipes. He claims, however, that honesty simply pays off in the kitchen. In our kitchen, we cook from local ingredients, and from our own vegetable and herb gardens, in the greenhouse, or in the field under the granary. We bake our own pastries, cakes, and bread, and Michal would like to give his successor once. Maybe in this beautiful family project, the quack will become a symbol of something that can last for generations.

Like any great chef, Michal is a workaholic. Asked what was the biggest reward for him after a hard day: “Definitely satisfied guests who enjoyed the food we served. Then in the evening, I go sit on my balcony with a bottle of beer and say to myself, “What a great evening!”

Restaurant Honoria Menu

Whether the castle park is covered in a glittery snow blanket or not, this time of the year here is magical. Quiet, resting. We hope to cast a delicious spell over you with our winter menu as well.

Local farmers worked hard on their fields all year round and it is thanks to them that we can proudly say a majority of our dishes are made from local produce.

However, our team was hard at work too, putting together yet another harvest of fantastic BIO potatoes that we grow directly here in Heralec in the field behind the castle granary.

This year’s harvest was very bountiful, allowing us to serve potatoes in multiple dishes all winter long. One such dish is the fantastic potato ravioli filled with meat and a bit of spinach, A modern take on a Czech dish.

Any ideas what classic we’re talking about?

A completely new addition to our menu is an otherwise immortal school canteen classic. However, our Stroganoff is anything but boring. Give it a chance.

Last but not least, I’d recommend the carrot cake.

Dive into its surprisingly delicious combination with salted caramel, homemade orange ice cream, and sea buckthorn.

Bon Appetit!
