Class number five will be all about delicious desserts. We are talking about poppy seed rolls that are most often called poppy seed strudel. It is a perfect combination of a bittersweet filling made from poppy seed and delicious yeasty dough.
This strudel is very common in the Czech and Slovak Republics for any occasion or as a delicious quick snack. While it’s reasonably priced and sold in almost every store there, the only way to enjoy this traditional Czech and Slovak version in the US or Canada is to prepare it at home — plus, homemade tastes more delicious!
Note: Suitable for vegetarians.
Hop onto Zoom from the comfort of your home and learn from Czech-born Chef Tom Slepicka in these hands-on interactive classes. This series, just like the previous series, will be focused on classic and modern Czech and Slovak dishes, so anyone with Czech and Slovak heritage or anyone who is a fan of Czech and Slovak culture will not want to miss out.
Slepicka graduated from culinary school in his hometown of Brno, located in the Czech Republic. While still in school, he established a successful full-service catering company which operated in the Czech Republic, Slovak Republic, and Austria. Slepicka moved to the U.S. with his wife in 2014. From 2015-16, he operated the Czech Deli at the NewBo City Market. The goal of this course is to make tasty and high-quality meals accessible to everyone.
