      I dunno, Rick, but I can call my mom and dad--They go to Fayetteville
      every weekend and would be happy to track them down, I know. If
      memory serves, the cookbook has an order form at the back. When I
      get home today I will look (I was tempted to say 'czech it out', but
      I resisted, didn't I? or did I? :-)

        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.

                  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.
