Would you like to make your Czech lessons more pleasant? Come to cook with us. It´s fun, you can také good food and you can practise what you have learnt. You may read an article Accusative in the kitchen. Today I offer a new recipe: let´s cook vajíčková pomazánka (an egg spread) and train partitive genitive.
We need partitive genitive to express quantity, e.g. kilo mouky (a kilo of flour), 200 gramů másla (200 grams of butter), kousek koláče (a piece of cake), láhev vody (a bottle of water), sklenice vína (a glass of wine)… Now we would like to practise this grammar and that´s why we are going to cook vajíčková pomazánka (egg spread). Czechs love spreads and this one is one of the most typical. You need these ingredients:
3 vajíčka (eggs), 200 gramů krémového sýra (creame cheese), 2 lžičky majonézy (2 teaspoons of mayonnaise), 2 lžičky hořčice (2 teaspoons of mustard), 1 stroužek česneku (1 glove of garlic), sůl (salt) a 1 papriku (red pepper – you can add other vegetable: cucumbers, tomatoes…).
nastrouhat (to great) smíchat (to mix) namazat (to spread) oloupat (to rind) krájet (to cut)
Gwendolin, Ewelina a Sadi tell you the recipe once again – video.
And now you can start to cook. Write me whether you were successful. Have you made the spread the same way we have? Or have you changed something? Good appetite.
Take an IKEA catalogue and in section Kitchen revise names of products in the kitchen and names of activities you can do with them (e.g. a talíř – jíst: a plate – to eat, hrnek – pít: a cup – to drink, nůž – krájet: a knife – to cut…)
