Chef

Ondřej Panoš

Right after graduating from my chef studies I started discovering the beauty and the challenges of my craft in various restaurants and hotels in my home town of Tábor. Hospitality services intrigued me so much that I studied hotel management, working as a hotel manager for some time. Yet when I was offered a job in an AA Rosette restaurant in the UK, I took the opportunity to get out of my suit, and into a chef’s attire. I learned a lot, working with a very experienced chef, and became his sous-chef. And since there is no place like home, I returned to Prague and joined the Etnosvět team. Here I use my experience to do what I love doing – cook with fresh, high-quality seasonal ingredients.

Event coordinator

Veronika Hašpicová

I am a qualified jewelry maker, which is a profession that comes with a great deal of diligence, patience and hard work. I started off by taking a part-time job in a small restaurant, and slowly worked my way up. Orderly and well-organized environment is very important for me. I am a gardener, a cook and a baker in my free time – which is what lead me to Etnosvět.

I would also like to add that working here brings me both a professional and personal fulfillment. I am glad for the opportunity to meet so many professionals and diverse human beings, which is what Etnosvět brings.

Etnosvět gives me not only a great job without the need to feel guilty about serving meat, but also a lot of new experiences. I now have a great group of colleagues who are also my friends, and so my job has become a second home to me. Thank you! J

Manager of the restaurant

Daria Ponomareva

Cooking and great food are my life passions. Yet I launched my career outside of the gastro-world. After finishing my studies at the Prague School of Economics, I worked in international shipping. I was a Shipping Operations Manager, Shipbroker and Crew Manager. However, my lifelong dream of opening my own restaurant kept coming back. And so when I was offered the opportunity to manage the whole Etnosvět team, I didn’t have to think twice! My vision is a restaurant that operates smoothly, with friendly staff and a perfect menu, making each visit to Etnosvět a great experience.

Shift manager

Lucie Filipiecová

I have always been interested in Gastronomy. I graduated from high school of Hospitality and I spent two years at the College of Tourism. However I was crazy about traveling and stopped my studying to spent a few years in Scotland gain some experience. In the end, in a completely unplanned way, I moved to Prague and found a job that I enjoy and as a bonus I found friends here. 🙂

Marketing

Petra Prokůpková

My friends would probably describe me as someone whose mind is sometimes steady and focused and the other minute is up in the clouds, someone who can’t bear the stereotype and whose life is a bit of a rollercoaster ride. I am addicted to adrenaline sports my entire life, however after few injuries I am way more calm down. I enjoyed kitesurfing and proper waves in Portugal and deep powder days on skis in America. Which sounds like I was just having fun 🙂 Not only! I studied twice in Denmark, where I fell in love with branding and then graduated in Innsbruck in this field. I am constantly trying to combine my desire for freedom with the creative work of a marketer. And I truly thank the Etnosvět’s team for this opportunity. Part of my working time I can be back home in my beloved Giant Mountains 🙂

Barış Karaca

Hello everyone. My name is Barış and I’m from Turkey. After graduated from university of culinary arts I started to work at restaurant Etnosvět kitchen as a Cook. I choose cooking because I like to search for new tastes and new ideas. Expect of cheflife that I believe every professional should have some hobbies which should complete their worklife and enjoy free time. So I made a choice of growing own vegetables and working on microherbs. It is such a nice feeling to process earth and having your ingredients from own garden. Earth is willing to return every nice feeling to you back. 😊

Waiter

Erik Luccas

Why do I work as a waiter in a vegetarian restaurant? Because after more than 10 years of experience in gastronomy, it was a new challenge for me. And in Etnosvět, I came across a great team of people, a friendly atmosphere and a fair employer. My hobbies are traveling and studying modern history. Thanks to the friendly environment and my colleagues I have plenty of time for my hobbies.
