This week on Fine Dining Lovers we travelled to Prague in the Czech Republic to meet with a chef who intent on changing people's attitudes regarding Czech cuisine.
We had an interview with chef Oldřich Sahajdák from the one Michelin starred La Degustation restaurant in Prague's Old Town.
Sahajdák is using an 18th century cook book to try and revive classic Czech cooking within a modern style. Inthe interview he spoke about his work at the restaurant and how he looks to places like Copenhagen as inspiration for what can happen with Czech cuisine in Prague.
