    Second Food Cup Czech Specials for 2014

    The next regional round of 2014 Food Cup Czech Specials took place on Saturday, 17 May. Veronika KOKO Kokešová, 2013 FOODblogger, presented both the Project, as well as the restaurants with Czech Specials certification: the second regional round involved three participating restaurants. Their task was to prepare a main dish using an important regional ingredient – Pilsner beer. Each participant took a different approach, offering to the jury and visitors beer-stew meat or a beer-dough fried apples dessert.    
    The Jury, composed of representatives from the Czech Association of Hotels and Restaurants, the Czech Association of Cooks and Confectioners and the CzechTourism Agency, evaluated visual aspect of the meal, its originality, treatment of the regional ingredient and, last but not least, the taste. In the end, the winners are chefs from Švejk Restaurant U Pětatřicátníků , being already second restaurant advancing to the grand finale that will take place in September under the International Cooks Day in Prague.

    Order decided by the Jury:

    1) Švejk Restaurant U Pětatřicátníků
    Competition Meal: Sous-vide glazed pork flank and tenderloin, sweet onion confit, potato cake

    2) U Salzmannů Restaurant

    In addition, visitors of the Festival got also the chance to evaluate the competition meals, their winner being Švejk restaurant U Pětatřicátníků. We would like to congratulate the winner.
