Easter festivities come to CottoCrudo restaurant at Four Seasons Hotel Prague on Sunday, April 1, 2018. From 11:00 am to 3:00 pm, CottoCrudo will host its perennially popular Easter brunch, this year featuring a folklore program based on deep-rooted Czech traditions. Guests will be able to listen to folk singers Muzička and watch skilled dancers from the Rosénka group, while decorating their own Easter eggs or make the braided whip called pomlázka. The afternoon will be topped off with Easter-themed activities for children.
Executive Chef Leonardo Di Clemente and his team will prepare a wide range of delicacies. The festive brunch will offer a variety of Italian specialties, including a mozzarella, fish and seafood bar; Prague ham, cold cuts and cheese counter; and a salad corner. This year will also feature typical Czech Easter dishes, with guests able to taste festive hot cross buns (mazanec), roasted lamb, and several meat delicacies combined with eggs, pastry or special stuffings. Desserts and a children’s buffet will complete the offering.The afternoon program will be full of fun and festive games, such as a traditional Easter egg hunt and the hand painting of Easter eggs called kraslice. These kraslice are the traditional symbol of Easter in the Czech Republic: cooked eggs or eggshells that are beautifully coloured and decorated by girls, which are then given to boys on Easter Monday as a reward for teasing the girls with braided whips called pomlázky. Easter pomlázky are made from pussy willow twigs and are thought to bring health and youth to anyone who is touched by them. Guests will be able to make their own pomlázky during the Sunday program.
