  • Just returned from the Czech Republic. This is a great country with ancient and wonderful gastronomic traditions. I have something more to do, but my husband just squealed with delight on local cuisine. Sausages, beer, pork knuckle, Becherovka. ... in General, you can talk about this forever, but it is better to see and try yourself!

  • Dull autumn afternoon, hiding from the rain, we accidentally went to this museum. It is located on the street. Jakubska 12, it is near the Kotvy shopping centre. The Museum is small, not so showy, as, say, Chocolate Museum, walk on it but was wondering. Together with an entrance ticket (price not preserved in memory, I only remember that small) we have issued to the Russian text describing the Museum expositions. Probably because there were very few visitors, plus we got to the description of the Guide. He was a young guy, a native of Dnipropetrovsk. He studied in Prague and thus works part-time. Now about the Museum. Development of gastronomy (i.e. equipment kitchens, cooking, food) are there "in development". That is, from the pockets of primitive man to Super-Duper modern kitchens. There you can see the kitchen and dining facilities, 20 's, 30 's and so on. You can see that the kitchen and the tableware collected worldwide. Everything is designed with love and taste. Looks very cool. Remember some things. For example, most modern kitchen, where water flowing from the tap, it changes color depending on the temperature. If hot, squirt acquires red, hot and blue. It is clear that this is a simple, but looks very impressive! My wife especially remembered the kitchen and dining room 30-40 years. In our country at this time on the kerosene stoves and were preparing here-praobrazy modern refrigerators, wafer-irons, mixers and other equipment. At the end of tours purchased in the Museum Shop the original bottle of Moravian Mead. About taste, unfortunately, I cannot say anything-went to the gift. In conclusion I would like to say that if you came to Prague for 3-5 days, you are hardly worth wasting such precious time for visiting the Museum of gastronomy. And here, if you have a little more time, it is recommended to take 1-2:00 and resemble small halls of the Museum.
