Czech gastronomy derives its roots from the Austro-Hungarian Empire. That is why you may find these cuisines similar. This applies most strongly to deserts, like apple strudel or pancakes. In addition, schnitzel with potato salad is a typical homemade dish served on special occasions or prepared with bread slices to take away on a hike. With a strong influence from Germany, especially Bavaria, pork is the main ingredient found in our meals, followed by a variation of dumplings.
