For just two evenings – on Nov. 9 and 10 – Trezor Špork (The Vault), part of the Červený Jelen (The Red Stag) restaurant in the center of Prague, will showcase the formidable talents of two culinary superpowers.

Michelin-starred chef Patrik Jaroš is the next guest in the ongoing series of events “Marek & Friends,” which brings some of the world's best chefs to this restaurant in the heart of Prague.

Together with Fichtner, executive chef of Červený Jelen, Jaroš, the youngest holder of a Michelin star in Germany, will present a seven-course truffle menu.

Jaroš received a star for his Munich restaurant Aubergine in 1994. The following year, he became a bronze medalist in the final of the prestigious world chef championship Bocuse d'Or. The chef is behind a number of dining concepts and is a recognized expert in the management of large-scale gastronomy projects.

Born in the Czech Republic, Jaroš has lived in Germany since the age of 10 and has been friends with Marek for many years. He currently owns several restaurants in the city of Cologne and is also one of the co-founders and co-owners of Červený Jelen’s sister restaurant and six other restaurants in Plzeň.

Jaroš is the author of more than 20 cookbooks, including a book about truffles, which inspired the menu of the next chapter of Marek & Friends, based on rare white Italian and black French truffles.

The Marek & Friends events are among the best that Trezor and Červený Jelen have to offer. International Michelin-starred chefs cook with Fichtner from the Jelen kitchen for only a few days a year.

This year, guest chefs at Trezor included three-Michelin star recipient Thomas Bühner, while an upcoming event will host Swedish chef Sebastian Gibrand, a Bocuse d'Or silver medalist. The events see the chefs design, create and cook a unique menu, which is then served at Trezor for just a couple of days.

The menu for this event includes a range of truffle-infused dishes including Stuffed Quail, Veal Sweetbread, and Orange Alaska. Dishes are expertly paired with both German, Czech, Italian, and French wines. See the full menu here.

Červený Jelen restaurant opened its doors in 2019 on the premises of the former Anglo-Czechoslovak Bank designed by Czech architect Josef Gočár. The layout of the current location was designed by architect Stanislav Fiala.

The restaurant is located in Prague's Hybernská Street in the baroque Sporck Palace, named for the original owner, Count Špork, the founder of the Czech Order of St. Hubert in the 17th century, and an art patron. The name and the sculptures of flying red stag that adorn the building (created by Czech sculptor Michal Gabriel) refer to the count's love of hunting.

Červený Jelen combines beautiful Gočár's "modernist-functionalist-cubist" architecture, warm and hospitable service, a quality selection of drinks, and a modern concept of gastronomy based on an enticing mix of quality grilled fare and à la carte dishes sent out by a skilled team working under the leadership of the well-known chef Fichtner.
