Dill sauce

Dill sauce is the pride of Czech cuisine, though no one knows where it came from and when. In Czech it is known as “koprová omáčka” or just a “koprovka.” It is made from cream, milk and dill, which gives it a characteristic flavour. It is usually served with dumplings, but it can be also eaten with potatoes as a side dish. It often includes a slice of beef or boiled eggs.
