Patrik started his career as a chef like many others, working in a large number of restaurants, including the Aubergine, Munich’s star ranking eatery, where he was chef from 1993 to 1995. There is no doubting Patrik Jaros’s love of cuisine, but restaurants are not the only places where he likes to practise his art! Competitions such as the 1995 Bocuse d’Or give him the opportunity to demonstrate his skills, although he finds working for publishing and industry particularly fulfilling. Through his company, FOOD LOOK, he has contributed to many books on subjects as varied as the “Oktoberfest” (by Taschen) and the recently published Trufflebook with a foreword by Paul Bocuse (Feierabend Publishing). He also designs and develops new recipes, products and point-of-sale solutions for the food industry. In 2009, he organised the German selections for the Bocuse d’Or. Originally from the Czech Republic, he is delighted to have developed a restaurant-bar concept in Prague: Hospodska.
