Iveta Fabešová

Pastry chef and owner IF Café and International Prague Pastry Academy

After participating in the Master Chef competition, she opened her own confectioner’s where she began producing confectionery products for local cafés. She opened her first own confectioner’s shop, IF Café, in 2012, resulting in enormous interest in both quality confectioner’s products and how the products are actually produced. Hence, in a different confectioner’s shop, she created a glazed production facility that forms the heart of the premises and provides customers with the chance to view the whole production process. She has transformed a small, family confectioner’s shop into the IF Café concept, which is recognised nationwide and which displays the confectioner’s art at the highest level. There are currently four branches in the centre of Prague. She is always educating herself and takes Master Class courses abroad – this was the inspiration for the idea to create the International Prague Pastry Academy. She presents her own courses at the academy, enthusiastically passing on her knowledge and experience to others.

Agáta Křížová

Coordinator of kids courses

(CZ) Snažíme se děti hravou formou naučit cukrářskému řemeslu. Naučíme je práci s nástroji, surovinami a hlavně práci v týmu. Při kurzu si navodíme příjemnou a kamarádskou atmosféru, ve které děti povolí uzdu své fantazii a prostě tvoří, smějí se a užívají si zábavu. Učíme nejen my je ale i oni nás a výsledek je vždy skvělý. Práce s dětmi je náročná ale krásná. Mnohdy se dozvíme spoustu radostí i starostí a proto jsme tady. Aby se za námi děti těšily, měly nás za kamarády a rádce aby pro ně IPPA byla kouzelným místem, kde se sny mění ve skutečnost.
