  1. Kristyna, just nominated your blog for best regional or specialty blog on Saveur magazine’s 2015 food blog awards. The voting for the nominees start March 30 for 1 week. Tell your family and friends to vote for you at that time. Saveur.com is a great website if you want more details or if you want to nominate a blog. Gotta try this dish it looks great.

    1. Oh my goodness, thank you! That was a very unexpected blessing. I appreciate it so much!!!!! When the voting is open I will definitely let people know! 😀

  2. Hi Kristyna! I love your blog! The recipes are just spot on! I love aspik- as a little girl I begged my mom to take me to a local ” bufet” for šunkový závitek:) I will try making it this weekend. And I have to say – your vepřo knedlo zelo recipe is AMAZING! We all appreciate the time and dedication to perfect the recipes- they for sure bring the good old memories:)

    1. Thank you so much Eva for such a wonderful comment! Such comments are worth of all my time spent on these recipes and videos. 🙂

  3. Kristina, I am married to an Austrian and we live in the US and I love making my hubby foods from his home country. I found your videos accidentally yesterday and am buzzing through them! There are so many similarities. I learned to make a few things like the potato goulash from my mother-in-law who still lives in Vienna. I just want to compliment you on your videos and I will be trying several of your recipes for sure. And I love your aprons! 🙂

    1. Thank you for such a sweet comment! 🙂 That is great to know there are many similarities in Austrian cooking. I think since we are neighboring nations we have lots in common. 🙂 I was born and raised in Brno which is very close to Vienna. When we fly back to visit most of the time we fly to Vienna and then drive to Brno. It is a stunning drive. I hope you will enjoy my dishes. 🙂

      1. That is so cool. My husband and his mother took me to Czech to a boarder town one time to shop and dine. It was cheaper at that time (18 years ago). She still lives in Vienna but we have not been in 5 years.

        1. That is wonderful. 🙂 Vienna is very close to my town Brno where I was born and raised.

  4. Vynikajici recept, rolky jsou jedna basen!! Moc nam chutnaji a budu je delat casteji. Prosila bych o zadani velikosti misek, ve kterych rolky tuhly. Predem dekuji

    1. Moc se omlouvam, ale momentalne nejsem doma, tak nemuzu misky zmerit. Jsem uz delsi dobu v CR. Jsem rada, ze rolky chutnaji. 🙂
