I was born in what was Czechoslovakia in the 60’s and even though we left Europe and came to Manitoba before the 70’s I grew up with homemade Czech food. Both my parents cooked and all our meals were always from scratch. My father may have been a chef in Europe but my mother’s culinary skills are just as good if not better than my father’s. I’ve had a life long love affair with Czech food even though we have moved away from some of the heavier foods, like knedles and roast pork with gravy and sweet cabbage, those meals still feel like home to me.
My recipes, or rather instructions are not weighed and counted but rather shared with approximations of measurements and suggestions and pictures. I’ve been taught to cook, “til it’s done” and season, “to taste”.
So if you are adventurous and do not require exact detailed instructions visit me often and I will share my favorite food.
I appreciate you stopping by and you can always email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
