The famous Czech spekacek (pronounced as “shpekaczek”) has been around for over 120 years.
Spekacek contains 50 percent beef, 20 percent pork without skin and 30 percent fat. It has been seasoned with garlic, pepper and a touch of nutmeg. It’s a popular short fat sausage best roasted on a stick over a campfire. These sausages are eaten with mustard and slices of bread. The Spekacek – which literally translates as “fattie” is more than just food – it’s a phenomenon that links people across generations. You can put them on the grill , but it tastes nowhere near as good as the ones you roast over the campfire. Spekacky is a great social thing not only for kids. It tastes best when you are sitting around the campfire, singing, playing the guitar with other people.
