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

“Poor”, “potato region” is the name that categorizes Vysočina.

Quite often our hilly part of Czech Republic is named like this. Always when I hear someone call it by one of these names, I right away disagree!

I have lived here for several years and I know all the raw materials that come from the fields, farms and i understand this is something we should treasure this.

 The richness of our “poor” region, we are trying to bring to you on your plate.

In this year, autumn menu you can get a taste of all the ingredients that we harvested, dried, cultivated, picked, loaded and stored.

All the ingredients we try to serve in the best state, so they are appealing to the eye, your taste buds and your stay at restaurant Honoria is memorable.

From our autumn menu, we would recommend everything J.

 However, if I had to pick one of the appetizers, definitely taste the smoked pork ham á la Russian egg, delicious soup made from best trout from our fisherman Mr. Nikl followed by wild boar leg roasted in milk, according to an old recipe from my grandmother’s cookbook.

If you will still have some space for a dessert, do not miss out on a traditional apple tart, with a little autumn jacket.

Bon appétit!
