Central European dishes

04-06-2002

In the past few years, Prague, Warsaw, Budapest and Bratislava have seen numerous restaurants spring up all over the cities, offering a wide selection of food ranging from light salads and sandwiches to hearty meals and deserts. However, whilst visitors from abroad find the meals reasonably priced, many locals cannot afford to eat out and therefore eat at home and only visit restaurants on special occasions. Find out what their home-cooked meals are like in this week's Central Europe Today where Dita Asiedu visits a chef in Prague and makes a three-course meal of Polish soup, a Hungarian main dish, and a Czech and Slovak desert, all cooked according to grandma's recipe.
