About the Founder

Christian Szabo


I’m founder of Local Food Tour Prague and have been presenting Prague cuisine to people from all over the world for over two years – but have worked in Prague tourism much longer. I’ve also worked as a cook who now, in his free time, studies history of food. Cuisine is like a portal to our past and culture because every meal has its background story. It’s often thrilling to find out how some foods evolved over time. How did potatoes get to Europe? Why aren’t dumplings particularly Czech? Is it a good idea to eat sauerkraut? Finally, as a local, I feel responsibility to offer an alternative to all the ‘hop on hop offs’ and ‘beer bikes’ with my intimate food and history tour.

I am also a traveler who knows that nothing connects you to a place like local meal. Seafood paella served with love by Spanish mom in the picturesque village of Herrera. Fresh mussels with herbs and local cider in the beautiful Basque town of San Sebastian. Roast beef sandwich with my dad enjoyed in the rainy countryside of Yorkshire. Flintstone-like steak served on a driveway restaurant near New Jersey. Fish soup with loads of paprika in Budapest with my best friends. Shot of Scotch whiskey at a rock bar in Edinburgh… All of these experiences inspired me to start a food tour in Prague and share our heritage with you!
