The Prague Food Festival, the Czech gastronomic event of the year, will take place from May 25 - 27, 2012 in the Royal Garden of Prague Castle. The theme of this year´s festival is “Think globally, eat locally”.
While the strapline suggests the direction the event will be taking, the festival also promises to offer a truly unique range of tastings which have never been presented in the Czech Republic before.
There will be 50 stands offering culinary delights of all kinds, three large tasting tents and more than 500 seats up for grabs. During the three day feast of food visitors will have the opportunity to taste delicacies served by top ten restaurants featured in the Maurer´s Grand Restaurant Guide 2012, the Czech equivalent of the famous Michelin Restaurant Guide. This year´s fourth edition of the festival will focus on unique gastronomic specialities: beetles and various insects in sweet and savoury style, an experimental laboratory, renowned French truffles, Maryland crab cakes from the USA, pear schnapps infused ice cream, mascarpone with strawberries, balsamic vinegar and parmesan cheese ice cream with figs, stuffed duck stomachs and frog’s legs.
The visitors to the festival will be able to taste the Czech Specials as well as enjoy them in the form of art in a performance entitled “The Art of the Czech Cuisine”. While the food will be disappearing from the plates it will be at the same time re-created on the canvas.
