      Hi!
      I am a graduate student of Czech heritage attending the University
      of Northern Colorado. I am orginally from Texas and am interested
      in writing my thesis on Czech American cookbooks, specificly those
      from Texas. I am mostly trying to find cookbooks from the mid to
      late 19th century and early 20th century, with an emphasis on those
      published by Czech societies and church groups. If anyone has
      cookbooks or information on cookbooks like these please contact me
      either by posing to this group or by e-mailing me at
      bigmainka@.... Thanks for you help.

        Hi,
        I have two Czech Cookbooks; they don't go back that far but one is very good.  Its name is "Generation to Generation" put our by the Historical Society of The Czechs. The order form in the back of the book says to submit orders to :Czech Club Historical Society, P.O. Box
        280403, Dallas, Texas 75228. Not only does it have great receipes but also depicts ladies in their "kroj", the dresses of the Czech in the Austro-Hungerian Empire and other depictions and history of various Czech customs. The other cookbook is the "S.P.J.S.T." one, celebrating 100 year of the Slavonic Benevolent Order of the State of Texas.  It has modernized recieps and nothing about our Czech Customs. It does have kolaces and dumplings.  I have one or two other cookbooks but at present don't know where they are. If you are interested in the SPJST one, the only address is Temple, Tx.

          Welcome Julie,
          Late 19th or early 20th Century Texas Czech cookbooks? My, you
          are young aren't you.<g>
          I don't think you'll have much luck before WWII. I can, though,
          recommend you order a copy of "Czech Reflections: Recipes, Memories &
          History," 1994, West, Texas, McLennan-Hill Chapter of The Czech Heritage
          Society of Texas. A web link to their order page is:
          http://www.czechheritage.org/CountyPages/mhbook.html An excellent
          resource for anyone interested in their Czech heritage.
          If you're ever down in Colorado Springs, czech out the Mountain
          View Cafe, east side of town. Husband and wife owners are from the CR and
          prepare Czech dinners evenings and weekends. Very good.
          You might also try posting a message asking for specific recipes
          or recollections of the members on this list. Many still retain and
          prepare recipes handed down from their ancestors, such as the recent post
          by Frances Barton of her family's prune dumpling recipe.

            Thank you for your quick response.  The book you suggested seems to dovetail perfectly with my project.  Also, I believe I will take your suggestion of asking for personal recipes.  I am still interested only in collections, but I believe personal collections would be an interesting route to go.  So if there is anyone out there who has any collections of recipes (especially Czech dishes with American modifications) I would appreciate you getting in touch with me.  Thanks once again.

            Best,

                interested. It contains a copy of a cookbook published in 1902, then
                a cookbook originally published sometime in the 19-teens, I think,
                then a collection of current recipes from the community.

                      Again, I have not been following closely - perhaps the KJZT cookbook is available from The Fayette County Record here in La Grange, telephone 979-968-3155.  I received one as a gift and it probably was purchased from there or Mrs Louis Polansky, Fayetteville.  This is quite a large book.
                       
                      Also have a cookbook entitled NARODNI DOMACI KUCHARKA CESKO-AMERICKA which is only 36 pages.  It is shown that the recipes were translated from the above named identity in the title of the book.  I apologize for my ignorance but I don't know the language at all.  It states that the recipes were taken from a cookbook  owned by Joseph M and Emily Walenta Kovar, Rosenberg, Texas and was published in the year of their marriage.   It further refers to the First Annual Czech Fest in Rosenberg, Texas, April 23-25, 1976 and sponsored by The Fort Bend County Historical Museum.  I don't know where I got this book.  It is possible that I purchased it at that event as I can remember going to an event in Rosenberg about that time.  I would be willing to lend this small cookbook for a research project, i. e. send it to the person who is doing the project and ask that it be returned to me upon completion of the project.     Bea Rost

                        Hi, Rick.  My old brain failed me.  I have 2 Fayetteville cookbooks, one is the 100 Years of Cooking with St. Anne.  It is in a small 3-ring binder, about 250 pages.  There are not many Czech recipes.

                        The second one is the one I was thinking of.  It is called Fayetteville Cookbooks:  No. I -  issued 1921; No. II -  Issued 1928; No. III - Issued 1988 (Issued by the Fayetteville Area Heritage Museum).  Interestingly the 1921 and 1928 sections have almost no Czech titles for the recipes, but reflect a farming community style of eating.  The recipes are typically 3-10 lines with just a few ingredients.  The 1988 section has a fair sprinkling of recipes with Czech titles.  My aunt, Olga Gully,   is listed as the contact person to get copies, but she is in her mid-80's now.  I can't get to the Internet right now, but maybe there is a way to contact the  Fayetteville Area Heritage Museum.  Ditto about posting this message to the TexasCzechs.  Feel free to pass this message along--maybe our server is down.

                          Julie,

                          I have a cookbook titled Memorial Book and Recipes, Czech Catholic
                          Home for the Aged, Inc.. It was originally published in 1957. I
                          have my mother's torn and tattered, soiled copy from that date. The
                          cookbook was reprinted just recently and I also have a "new" copy.
                          It was available to buy at Novak's Meat Market in El Campo, Texas
                          for about $10 about a year ago. It may also be available from the
                          Czech Catholic Home, Route 3, El Campo, Texas 77437. You said that
                          you were interested in cookbooks published by church groups. Well,
                          this cookbook is unique. It has recipes that are current to the
                          50's but also kolachy recipes, head sausage recipes, poppy seed
                          cake, spiced tongue, goulash, liver-onion patties, dumplings, egg
                          noodles, sweet chips, bunches of cookies, and houska to mention only
                          some of them. The contributor of each recipe is listed and reads as
                          a list of Czech names.

                          The hints for kitchen, laundry, sewing, etc are fun to read. For
                          example: a laundry hint: "Sprinkle clothes right on the line if
                          you have a garden hose (turn on spray). Roll clothes as you take
                          them down." It contains ads from businesses of the era from all
                          over Czech Texas and the whole thing is a great reflection of the
                          culture of the times. Lots of pictures of churches and people. A
                          few pictures are very old.

                            I was reading your e-mail like you had sent it to me, then
                            realized it was to another Julie. And on top of that, you
                            mentioned the Novak Meat Market in El Campo - they were my mom's
                            cousins! Mom was a Korenek from Dubina. I have never been to the
                            meat market, need to make a trip out there one day. Where are you
                            originally from? I grew up in Ammannsville.

                            Have a good day - love the cooler weather!

                              I was reading your e-mail like you had sent it to me, then
                              realized it was to another Julie. And on top of that, you
                              mentioned the Novak Meat Market in El Campo - they were my mom's
                              cousins! Mom was a Korenek from Dubina. I have never been to the
                              meat market, need to make a trip out there one day. Where are you
                              originally from? I grew up in Ammannsville.

                              Have a good day - love the cooler weather!

                                What a fun topic for a thesis!

                                I have two Texas Czech cookbooks from the 1960s. The first is "Our
                                Favorite Recipes." It was published by the Christian Sisters Society of
                                the Taylor Brethren Church in 1963. Many of the people in this
                                congregation came from the Vsetin region in Moravia, a stronghold of
                                Hussite protestants. This book contains the kolac recipe of the Taylor
                                Christian Sisters; for many years they baked thousands of kolace every
                                month and sold them to raise money. It also contains my grandmother's
                                astonishingly good sour cream cake and sour cream icing recipe. There
                                are also two Moravian molasses cookie recipes, several pickle recipes,
                                and--my favorite--a kapanky (egg drop dumplings) recipe. My mother made
                                kapanky very often; she would drop the kapanky dough (flour, egg, and
                                salt mixture of a runny consistency) into chicken broth that usually
                                also had onion, tomatoes, celery, and lots of parsley. So delicious. A
                                little like Chinese egg drop soup, except the Czechs always used flour
                                in the mixture. Most of the other recipes are American.

                                The second book is called "Our Favorite Recipes." It was compiled by the
                                Christian Sisters Organization of the Austin Brethren Church in 1966.
                                This one has a couple of sauerkraut salads, a recipe for potato
                                dumplines with prunes (sisky), poppy seed cake (this was the kind of
                                cake my father always wanted for his birthday; it has lots of
                                poppyseed), an old (19th century for sure) recipe for
                                "Great-Grandmother's Oatmeal Cookies," something called "Czech Apple
                                Strudel," and my other grandmother's Christmas cookie recipe that she
                                copied from a 1920 issue of "Physical Culture Magazine." It is similar
                                to the Moravian molasses cookie recipes in the Taylor book.

                                I would be happy to copy these books and send them to you if you think
                                they would be useful. I also have several family recipes I would be glad
                                to share. For example, my mother's incredible dill pickle recipe (cold
                                pack, flavored with garlic, dill, and mustang grape leaf), rice pudding
                                with prunes, my mother's rye bread recipe, my grandmother's caraway
                                cheese recipe (there was recent discussion of this type of cheese on
                                this site), my mother's heavenly chicken and dumpling recipe, and Mary
                                Mrazak's recipe for chocolate cake (a great Czech cook from south Texas).

                                This has gotten to be kind of long-winded. I love this food so much it's
                                hard to say only a few words. Let me know if any of this might be
                                helpful to you.

                                Oh! I forgot one of my favorites! Nelsonville Stew! My father was the
                                preacher at the Nelsonville Brethren Church during the 1940s and 1950s.
                                One of the yearly church dinners featured a poultry stew, similar to
                                stews served in many rural areas of America. Some places this stew would
                                be made with squirrel. In Nelsonville, the cooks made it with turkeys,
                                potatoes, lima beans, corn, and chili powder (Gebhardt's, I believe).
                                They made it outdoors in big vats over an open fire.

                                Did I mention the mutton? You see, I could go on and on. I better sign
                                off now.
