Let's say my husband and I move back to Prague. Tired of teaching, I decide to help out in a Czech restaurant. After 10 years of living in Prague and working my way around various kitchens, I decide to go open a little cafe of my own. (Leaving aside the questionable reality of my ability to do this with no formal culinary training.) The menu features Czech cooking spiked with American flourishes. I'm sure you can see where this is going.
So I couldn't really call that Czech food?
