Vánočka – Sweet Czech Braided Bread

Vánočka is often called “Houska” in the USA. The name “vánočka” comes from “Vánoce”, which means Christmas in Czech. It is a scrumptious sweet bread with raisins and almonds, which is very common to serve on Christmas morning in the Czech Republic (December 24th). It can be served plain, with butter, or with butter and preserves/jam. Because it is very delicious, people buy it in the Czech Republic all year long.

Note: Suitable for vegetarians.

Join us from the comfort of  your home on Zoom and learn from Czech-born Chef Tom Slepicka in these hands-on interactive classes.

Slepicka graduated from culinary school in his hometown, 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 his courses is to make tasty and high-quality meals accessible to everyone.

Our 3rd Christmas Series consists of 8 classes with 5 brand new classes as well as 3 of the most successful Christmas classes from last year. This is a great opportunity for those that didn’t participate last year to still have a chance to try the most popular classes from last year! Those who participated last year will benefit not just from the 5 brand-new classes, but also from the opportunity to refresh the more technically demanding classes, such as Vánočka.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about how to access the class. Participants will need high-speed internet and a computer, tablet, or smartphone to access the course content. To interact with the chef during the class, you will also need a webcam and microphone. The recipe, tools needed, and any prep you might need to do ahead of time will be emailed a week before each class, so you can purchase the ingredients and cook along with the chef during the class.
