About Czech Cuisine
Czech food is varied, but always – very hearty. It is usually cooked meat in different ways (often pork), sausages and liver pâté, fish dishes (often carp), juicy vegetable salads. And, of course, incredibly delicious local beer with a typical strength of about 3 degrees. Czech cuisine is really very tasty and original, but often untrained eater Czech dishes seem too fat and heavy, because they usually contain more meat than vegetables, and they are cooked in butter or fat. And when you consider the enormous portions that are usually served here…
As in most Eastern European countries, in Czech Republic it is customary to start a meal with soup. Czech soups are extremely varied: it may be beef soup with pasta and meatballs, potato soup, pea soup, cabbage soup, mushroom soup or fish soup. Soups vary in consistency – from almost transparent broths to thick soups puree. Onion and garlic soups are considered specialties. It is customary to serve bread or croutons with the soups.
However, if one had to use one word to answer the question “what do Czechs eat,” that word would be “meat. Almost all Czech traditional hot dishes are made of meat, most often pork. Meat is pan fried, baked in ovens and stoves, stewed, boiled, smoked and processed into sausages and frankfurters. Perhaps the most popular everyday dish in the average Czech family is pork with dumplings and sauerkraut. Very favorite are pork ear with cabbage, pickled pork knee, meat dish in cream sauce, pork pieces in sour cream, and goulash.
The Czech Republic has no access to the sea, and fish is much less popular than meat in this country. Although sometimes Czechs cook various dishes from cod, pike, carp, catfish and trout.
Dumplings and dumplings occupy a special place in Czech cuisine. Flour or potato dumplings are usually filled with mushrooms, meat, vegetables or berries and served as a main course, while dumplings are cooked without any filling and served as a side dish to many main courses or soups. Dumplings with berry or fruit fillings are almost the only Czech vegetarian dish.
The most popular vegetables in Czech cuisine are cabbage and potatoes. Stewed or sauerkraut is usually served as a side dish, and potatoes are used to prepare casseroles, potato balls, mashed potatoes and other side dishes. German potato salad is also popular in the Czech Republic.
Czechs cannot be called sweet-takers – they are fond of meat, beer and cabbage more than sweets. Therefore, the Czech dessert table is quite simple – these are pancakes with jam or marmalade, parboiled cakes with jam or cream, sweet dumplings or fresh fruit.
And, of course, an integral part of Czech gastronomic preferences is beer. Beer is a drink that Czechs start drinking from childhood. And no wonder – this Czech beer is not strong (only about 3 degrees), so in small quantities they allow everyone to drink it, regardless of age. Czechs do not consider beer an alcoholic beverage – they drink it without remorse during the lunch break of the working day. The country is full of beer bars that have no tables or chairs at all – a person comes in, buys a glass of fresh beer, drinks it in two tries right at the bar, gives the glass back and goes on with his business. In short, beer in the Czech Republic is more than a drink, it is an important element of the culture of the Czech people.
