Chlebičky & Charcuterie Platters

April 11 @ 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Traditional Czech and Slovak open-faced sandwiches are not merely scrumptious; they are also visually appealing and exceedingly rare—finding a place in the U.S. that sells them is practically impossible. In this comprehensive course, we will delve into the essential techniques and secrets required to master the art of making these unique delicacies in your own kitchen. You’ll discover the intricacies of balancing flavors and assembling these aesthetically pleasing creations with ease and confidence. As an added bonus, we will also explore how to prepare Czech and Slovak charcuterie platters, renowned for their decorative appeal and array of flavors. This segment of the course will enhance your culinary skills, teaching you how to curate and present a selection of meats and cheeses that truly embody the festive spirit of Czech and Slovak gastronomy. Join us for an enriching culinary journey where you’ll not only learn to recreate these rare and beautiful dishes, but also gain insights into a cherished part of Central European culinary traditions.
