You might have noticed that am running this week’s blogging marathon with Cook by Capital as theme. And i picked ‘P’, obviously after Paris, today’s capital i have picked is Prague Prague is Czech Republic’s capital and i seriously want to visit this beautiful capital atleast once in my lifetime. And i have been looking for an opportunity to visit this place though its not far from France. Since i picked Prague, i googled for some interesting dishes from this amazing country, many Czech dishes are loaded with meats. However i looked for something different, definitely a hassle free dish from this cuisine. While googling, i crossed Livance, a fabulous Czech yeasted pancakes. Livance may sounds as much as like American Pancakes but trust me these pancakes are dangerously delicious.
