If you are looking for the taste of the Czech summer holidays then you have to try the Yeast Blueberry Cake With Crumble Topping. In summer Czech woods are full of blueberries. Going to the forest to pick blueberries is not history it is still part of the current Czech culture. It is def worth spending few hours curving your back and picking the tiny fruits.
Once upon a time poppy seeds fall in love with lemon…and this fantastic fluffy and moist cake was created. Taste of poppy seeds and lemon is perfectly balanced and it is so easy to prepare. Original recipe could be found in a cook book written by amazing Dita P. and is called Deník Dity P. Kuchařka 2 (Only in Czech Language). Just bake it :-)
I am not very experienced in baking but now being a mother I have to face my son´s sweet tooth so I rediscover traditional Czech recipes. These remind me of my own childhood and they also bring a bit of Czech atmosphere to my current home in Germany.
Last week the weather was crazy and I didn’t know if to wear scarf and jumper or shorts and flip flops, if to write about ice cream and ice coffee or about soups. On Tuesday I enjoyed a great ice drip at my beloved EMA espresso bar, on Thursday I savoured the best chocolate ice cream at Angelato and on Friday I had to warm up More “Bramboracka Czech Potato Soup”
This creamy, silky, sweet and aromatic sauce is my Czech favorite. Trust me it is worth traveling all the way from where you are to the Czech Republic to taste it. Serving this kind of dill-cream sauce warm is quite unique in the world. Above all, it goes perfectly with beer, or two.

It is nice sunny Sundayand we are heading to the park to for a picnic. Sitting in the grass, watching the trees, the river, people walking by, explaining to my adorable little son that staying at one spot for several minutes is not a bad idea and eating couscous. This is what I call picnic. Sunday in the park and my couscous have something in common. More “Couscous With Courgettes, Carrots and Feta Cheese”
The Czech Republic is definetly a country of soups. Being a Czech kid you hear on every occasion that if you don’t eat that soup you will never grow. So we eat soups. Soup on every festive menu, soup as the first course of your daily lunch and a soup as a main dish. We eat soups a lot.

I love salmon. I love tartar. And I am crazy about salmon tartar.
This tartar is made of lightly smoked salmon and cottage cheese which makes the tartar very fresh and light. The taste is perfectly balanced.
