Grilling for a multicultural party
Last weekend we topped of a round of spring birthday celebrations with a three-way party for our Prucha boys. Oliver, Radek and Samuel, all have birthdays within three weeks of each other. In keeping with the traditions of the neighborhood, we decided to host a Saturday afternoon barbeque. Barbequing is common during the spring and summer in the Czech Republic, and most of the larger barbeques that I’ve attended have involved grilling a pig (or part of a pig), lamb or hen. As the hostess this time, I wanted to include a few American traditions and tasty treats so that our children and guests could get a sense of both of our family’s heritages.
