The Prague food festival 2017 had opened up cookery workshops along with a cookery school to teach various techniques and recipes of some of the best dishes that came up during the course of the festival.

The entry to the complex of the Prada food festival 2017 was with the tickets that you could either buy in advance or pay up right at the gates of the complex during the festival days. The presale tickets were priced at $450 CZK while those which were booked on the spot were tagged at 550 CZK. A small part of the entry fee, i.e. 10 “Grands” (which equals 30 CZK) went in as the price of all the great food that you would taste. The 10 Grands could either be split up into parts so as to buy smaller dishes and delicacies, or you could also spend the whole amount at one go on the Festival Menu presented by your chosen restaurant. You could also buy some more Grands from the Prague food festival 2017 banks if you ever ran out of money to buy a dish. These banks were spread across the complex of the festival. The noblest step taken by the organisers of the festival was to donate 10 CZK from each ticket, whether pre-sold or booked on the spot, to the Akshaya Patra Foundation. This foundation aims to provide at least a single meal to the poor and needy Indian children while attending their schools. Moreover, the total sum of the money that came up through this would be doubled up personally by the owner of the Zátiší Group, Mr. Sanjiv Suri.
The Prague food festival is one of the biggest food festivals that happen in the world, let alone in Czech Republic. While the festival is organised to make it greatly appealing to the international forum on the whole, it still doesn’t lose its classic native touch. The native Czech dishes reflect that the culinary culture has been well engraved in their tradition for long. Czech food is delicious, and to get a taste of the same at a fraction of the original price is always a hugely welcomed thing for foodies from around the globe. Extravagantly delicious recipes, a multitude of flavours and some great combinations take the Prada food festival to the top of the charts. If you are a foodie and haven’t been to this awesome gastronomical event then take up a pen and add it to your bucket-list, for this is something you wouldn’t want to miss in your lifetime.
