Czech Republic – Koláče

This week we venture to the Czech Republic, where I have found myself relying a little too heavily on the questionable products of Google Translate. I thought the most accurate recipes would be in Czech, and so I found a couple of recipes, but the problems started when I turned them into English. So this week,…

Cyprus – Kalo Prama

Country 5/28, it’s Cyprus! Birthplace of Aphrodite, my favourite cheese, halloumi, and the oldest known pet cat, which was buried with its owner around 9,500 years ago. 

Bulgaria – Garash Cake

Week two of Bulgaria – garash cake! A typical cake served in cafes and restaurants in Bulgaria, that is surprisingly difficult to find any history about.

Belgium – Appelflap

Second week of Belgium, and this time we’re going for pastries. Incidentally I found out that Belgian buns have no relation to Belgium (in case you’re wondering why they weren’t chosen),

Belgium – Brussels Waffles

This week we’re venturing to the heart of the EU – Belgium, and more specifically, the city that has apparently taken all of the UK’s freedom to make choices, Brussels!

Austria – Sachertorte

It’s week two of Austria, and this time I’ve made Sachertorte. Sachertorte has a surprisingly controversial history. It’s not every day you hear about a cake that had legal battles over it.

Austria – Gugelhupf

It’s week one, country one – Austria! This week’s selected cake is Gugelhupf, or Kugelhupf (also spelt with an ‘o’ instead of a ‘u’ if you fancy).
