Foodle.pro is the love child of three avid foodies.
Gerhard belongs to a very small group of people who has eaten at every three-star Michelin restaurant in the world.
Equipped with maps and the red Michelin Guide, the_dining_austrian has been exploring the European restaurant scene since the early 1980s. When Gerhard sold his business in 2001, he started dedicating more time to exploring rated restaurants. In April 2017 while dining in Fukuoka, Japan with his son, he concluded his quest. He was subsequently interviewed in the feature documentary "Michelin Stars: Tales from the Kitchen" which successfully premiered as the opening movie in the San Sebastián Film Festival in September 2017.
He recorded these experiences using the Evernote Food app on his smartphone. However, the app recently went out of business and so, after unsuccessfully attempting to buy it, Gerhard teamed up with Andras in order to create a superior replacement.
Hopefully, Foodle.pro will become the go-to place for people interested in recording their meals and exchanging this documentation with other foodies.

Lou Stejskal grew up in a small town outside of Chicago. “My mother is the biggest influence on why I love food. She would make meatloaf, but have spaghetti on the side and it would be sitting next to a whole fish. I was the pickiest eater yet she never forced me to try anything or finish my plate."
Her career as an advertising art director placed her in the middle of Chicago’s Magnificent Mile where her daily lunch objective was to round up coworkers and try a new restaurant every day.
During a work dinner in San Francisco, she found herself trapped, having to eat her way through a few vegetable courses at her first tasting menu, unsure of how it worked and if there would be enough food to fill her up. Yes, the tender age of 27 is when Lou ate her very first plate of vegetables. It was that first non-mealy tomato, surprisingly crisp, sweet and succulent, that ignited her curiosity to explore all of the Bay Area markets, food festivals and restaurants.
Living in Seattle, with frequent trips to Vancouver, is when she developed her love for seafood. It was the first time she ate seafood that wasn’t battered and deep-fried.
Back in the Chicagoland area with her three children, she enjoys supporting the local dining scene and traveling to restaurants around the world. Her passion for food, connecting people and sharing her dining experiences to inspire others can be found at loustejskal.com and on her Instagram and Facebook accounts.
