Slow Food Prague in English

How food choices can affect our health

Did you know that it’s possible eat healthy and at the same time enjoy delicious food? Did you know that food plays a very important role in the maintenance of our health and even in recovery? How much weight do you give to nutrition labels when choosing a food? How much time do you spend on buying and preparing your food, how much do you know about the food you eat? How many products that have been highly industrially processed, rich in sugars and unhealthy fats enter your diet?

Slow Food is committed to promoting healthy lifestyles and conscious consumer behaviors. Our position on Food and Health can be summarized as follows:  increase the consumption of fresh food, locally sourced, preferably organic, biodynamic or with integrated pest control, not overly processed; limits to sugar consumption, refined flours, meat and preferring vegetables and legumes; give the right time to meals, and learn to read and understand labels.

How did we use to eat? – New Event (CZ)

17/05/2018 .
Let us recall the value of CZ gastronomy and how we have changed since the time of the Republic.

With Petr Horou Hořejš, the author of the Toulky cycle of the Czech past, Slow Food Prague created a program that introduces the audience to our ancestors. What, where, how, and how much did they eat?

Do you know that the Emperor Franz Josef, Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk, Antonín Dvořák, Jan Neruda or Karel Čapek ate very modestly? This is evidenced by preserved recipes such as Kaiserschmarren’s emperor’s famous emperor, plum dumplings and sour martyrs’ mums, Čapkovy potato pancakes …

We look back and learn how they shared a common table of the poor and the rich who ate on a street in Prague or in a mother’s home.

We invite you to a composite show:
.How we used to eat ”
history of the stomach ‘s accent on eating together (restaurants, cafes, factory canteens, groceries for the poor, food on the street …). Thematic ensembles will complement musical performances (period songs, cuplates, Hašler’s songs, etc.) by the Pragtet ladies vocal-instrumental trio.

The narrative will be accompanied by the screening of historical photographs, documents and pictures.

For each viewer we have a little surprise at the end.

Where: Dobeška Theater

When: May 17, 19:00

Performed by: Petr Hora Hořejš
Cast: Pragtet
Prepared by: Slow Food ® Prague

Heat the oil in a pan and garlic and add the spinach. Let them cook few mns and extinguish the fire. Let cool and transfer them on a cutting board to make them into small pieces. In a bowl, mix them with an egg, 50 grams of Parmesan and a nice grating of pepper, mixing everything well and obtaining a soft cream.

2.Line a hinged baking pan with baking paper and lay on it a first plate of brisé dough. Punch holes the base of pasta with a fork to avoid that, in cooking, bubbles may form that would ruin the recipe. Fill it with the cream of spinach and level it well, avoiding empty spaces and air bubbles. Add the ricotta cream and spread it on the entire surface of the Pasqualina cake. Create four holes on the surface of the ricotta cream and slide four shelled eggs, after separating the egg yolks from the whites. Cover with the second brise paste. Close the edges of the pasqualina cake so that it does not open during cooking. Brush it with egg and cook in a preheated oven for 40 minutes at 180 °.
