Festival themes

This year offers an exceptionally attractive theme: “Baroque on your plate”

For Baroque architecture, monumentality, exaggeration and precious materials are characteristic. Music is represented by J. S. Bach with G. F. Händel, painting by Caravaggio with Rubens and Rembrandt. In sculpture making the renowned artists were Bernini, Michelangelo, and here in the Czech Republic Matyáš Braun. The Baroque is characterized by a wealth of shapes, ornateness and grandeur. Naturally it also established itself in the field of gastronomy.

The cuisine was based on venison, fresh fish, popular meats included veal, duck and crayfish, but often also snails and naturally seafood in coastal areas. Among main ingredients from this era are cinnamon, honey, dried fruit, mushrooms, ginger, nuts or root vegetables. Very popular were sauces such as Béchamel, Espagnole, Hollandaise, Velouté and other, even spicy sauces.

You will have a chance to try discounted tasting menus inspired by local ingredients, creativity of the country's top chefs and naturally – by the Baroque.
