Zucchini cream with croutons

      When Jan recently declared he would make a zucchini soup, I wasn’t entirely convinced about the result. For me, it’s not really a classic soup ingredient. But I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised, it was a really light and lovely cream, just fantastic for hot summer days.

      Frankfurter soup

          I have to admit this one is my favourite of all the soups we cooked for the blog. My mum makes one that is a bit similar, so it’s for sentimental reasons, too. If you had to chooses, which soup would you pick as your absolute favourite? My taste is quite classic, so I love […]

                      Sauerkraut soup with sausage and smoked paprika

                          A lot of our friends for some reason think that we only eat truffles, steaks and foie gras at home. Well, it’s not entirely true: sometimes we really feel like eating some classic Czech dish, such as this sauerkraut soup. We Czechs love our soups, doesn’t matter if it’s with potatoes, mushrooms, tripes or liver. […]
