1.       Czech, in general, liked fatty meals with lard and flour.  Typical dish is roast pork, sauerkraut and dumplings, goulash with dumplings. We like smoked-meat products, the same as Germans.  Wiener schnitzel. ( it is pork steak coated in flour, egg and breadcrumbs and fried.) We like different kinds of sauces.



2.        Sweets and cakes are typical Czech cuisine as well. Most of them we can buy in normal shops, such as doughnuts, stuffed cakes, apple pies, marble cake, Christmas cakes or Easter cakes.






3.       The CR is one of the largest beer producers in the world.(Pilsner Urquell, Budweiser). White and red wine is also planted in the Czech Republic (mainly in Southern Moravia). Becherovka, an herb liqueur, from Karlovy Vary. Plum brandy, “Slivovice”, is a famous product of Moravia. Kofola is a carbonated soft drink produced in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. It is the principal rival of Coca-Cola and Pepsi in these two markets. Favourite traditional drink in winter is hot mead (honey wine).
