The national dish of Czech republic is Vepřo knedlo zelo Why not make it on September 28 when Czech republic celebrates statehood day (Saint Wenceslas day). Here’s what our country chef Florian says about the national dish of Czech republic:
Vepřo-knedlo-zelo — literally means “pork-dumpling-cabbage” but you’ve probably never heard of it. This could have something to do with it usually being a rather plain dish. However, in this recipe the pork is served with red cabbage in port wine and sauerkraut with caraway and stock, making it a little more interesting. The bread dumplings are given a nice flavour using parsley, onion and bacon.
