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,…
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.
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.
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),
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!
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.
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).
