Meet Chef Karel Mulac

Chef Karel Mulac has been cooking since he was a young boy in the Czech Republic. He found his passion for cooking by learning family recipes in his mother’s kitchen. At age 15, Chef Karel knew he was destined to be in the kitchen, and by age 22 had worked his way up to Head Chef. He has since cooked all over the world and has held every kitchen job. Chef Karel joined the talented staff at Biba in 2015 at the most coveted place in the kitchen: pasta cook. He loves the professional and knowledgeable staff and the family vibe Biba fosters in the restaurant. Biba herself approves of his approach to her treasured recipes and enjoys his cooking weekly. Chef Karel has all 9 of Biba’s cookbooks and draws on her words for inspiration with his seasonal menus.
