Regional Meals and Evaluation of Traditional Czech Cuisine

Within the May survey Public Opinion Research Centre concentrated on the topic of traditional Czech cuisine. The research included a section of questions devoted to finding out which traditional regional meals respondents know and if they themselves cook them. From the results it arises that people most often consider as regional meals – potato pancakes, potato cakes, kulajda (cream of mushroom soup), kyselo (mushroom sour cream sauce), cakes and goulash, and they also most frequently cook these meals in their household.

As far as the general evaluation of traditional Czech cuisine is concerned, an overwhelming majority of respondents consider it to be substantial, tasty, affordable and sought after (86 to 97 % agree with the characteristic above). However, a distinctly smaller consensus exists in opinions on whether traditional Czech cuisine is healthy (46 % agree) and varied (49 % of agreeing respondents).
