Just Like Grandma Would Make: An Heirloom Czech Spaetzel Recipe is Illuminated
Easy as one, two, three: Czech spaetzel
Recipes passed down from generation to generation are special. That they stand the test of time is reason alone to love them -- a generous helping of the past on a plate or in a casserole dish.
Newly born dishes, shaped by chefs forging brave trails in restaurant kitchens, are important too. Perhaps sometimes inspired by the past. But these... Well, they've earned their keep.
