Letní Pažitková Pomazánka – Summer Chive Spread


How česká is pomazánka? Whether as a component of chlebíčky (small open faced sandwiches laden with hardboiled eggs, pickles, ham, and heavily laced with mayonnaise ) or simply spread on some fresh Šumavský bread, most pomazánky tend to be heavy, stodgy, and not exactly summery. This spread, however, is a summer staple at our weekend chata (cottages being another terribly typical Cz summer staple). With tvaroh (quark or something like cottage cheese), fresh chives (grown on your kitchen window of course!), garlic, salt, and pepper, you have the makings of a perfect summer cottage breakfast or lunch. Pair it with polévka/ soup, and you’ve got supper. If you’re not “on the cottage in the nature”, drag it out to Riegrák,  Parukářka, or any other park and you can enjoy it al fresco.


You Will Need:

1 tub (250 g) of polotučný tvaroh (half-fat soft quark)

a big bunch of chives, chopped

1 or 2 Tbsp of full fat tvaroh (optional)

1 clove of garlic, crushed

salt and pepper to taste

1. Mix everything together! Enjoy under a blue sky, with plenty of fresh cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers, and of course, some crusty rye bread.
