Petr Kunc gained most of his experience working in the United Kingdom alongside Michelin-star chefs including Albert Roux, Tom Aikens and Giorgio Locatelli.
Also, his internships with masters in the industry such as Sergio Herman, Pierre Gagnaire, Gordon Ramsay, Heston Blumenthal, Raymond Blanc, Michel Roux Jr., Agnar Sverrisson, Nuno Mendez and Richard Corrigan were formative for him.
He worked as private chef for Rhubarb, a London-based VIP Catering company, supplying events such as Wimbledon, Royal Ascot and the 2012 Olympic Games. Petr prepared private dinners for Buckingham Palace, Kensington Palace, Windsor Castle, the Borussia Dortmund football team and individuals such as Sir Elton John, designer Valentino, Louis Vuitton and Donna Karan, along with other well-known personalities.
After seven years in England he found his way home to the Czech Republic, in 2013. He first took the lead in the renowned Prague restaurant V Zátiší and a year later accepted a position at the SOHO restaurant in Prague. Since 2016 he’s been fully involved in the Salabka restaurant. The cuisine he created with his team is considered a hidden treasure in Prague’s Troja.
Petr is married to Gabriela Kunc Lacherová who works by his side as the restaurant’s General Manager.
