Czech Recipes


As you might expect, food in the Czech Republic, has been very much influenced by the cuisine of the country's neighbors - although of course there are many uniquely Czech foods too! The main dish in most Czech meals is usually some variety of meat, often pork, but also beef, chicken and wild game are also popular.

Being a landlocked country, fish does not generally form a major part of the Czech diet. The exceptions are freshwater trout and carp, the latter of which is traditionally eaten for Christmas.

Here are some popular dishes from the Czech Republic:
  • Knedliky - Knedliky are boiled dumplings made from potatoes, or a mix of wheat flour and stale/dry bread. They are sliced before serving, and eaten as a side dish with many Czech meals.

  • Bramboráky (also known as "cmunda", "vošouch", "strik" or "striky") - These are fried pancakes made from grated potato.

  • Smažený sýr - A thick slice of cheese, coated with bread crumbs and then deep-fried. It is eaten with tartar sauce ("tatarská omácka").

  • Svícková na smetane - Roast beef covered with a thick cream sauce containing carrots and parsley. Traditionally eaten with dumplings ("knedliky"), and served with a slice of lemon and a teaspoon of cranberry compote.

    LI>Utopenci - Pickled bratwurst.

  • Veprová pecene s knedlíky a se zelím (also known as "Vepro-knedlo-zelo") - Roast pork with dumplings nedliky and cabbage. There are two varieties - one with just sauerkraut which is usually (but not always) eaten in Bohemia, and one with sugar sweetened cabbage (either fresh or sauerkraut) which is usually (but not always) eaten in Moravia.
Here are some popular Czech desserts:
  • Koláce - A pastry roll filled with cheese or fruit.

    Apricot Koláce

  • Ovocné knedlíky - Ovocné knedlíky are dumplings made with potato dough and containing fruit on the inside. Many different fruits may be used, but plum dumplings ("švestkové knedlíky") are popular during the Easter and Christmas holidays.

  • Vánocka - This is a rich bread-like cake made using eggs and butter. It contains almonds and raisins, and is flavored with lemon rind and nutmeg. Vánocka is made by preparing braids of dough, and stacking them (with large braids at the bottom, and smaller braids at the top) before cooking. The cake is traditionally eaten during the Christmas period, and its design is said to resemble the infant Jesus in a manger.

  • Vánocní cukroví - Decorated cookies, traditionally eaten at Christmas.

Product Description:
For Dumplings' Sake!
They come in many sizes: small, medium, large, even giant, and in different shapes: round, square, long, flat, thick, or thin. They can be prepared many different ways: boiled, steamed, poached, stewed, baked, fried. A number of different kinds of dumplings are a part of Czech and Slovak cuisine, but the dumpling finds a way to please almost anyone's taste or fancy. We have included a number of recipes in this collection that reflect this universal appeal.
A famous dumpling story comes from the Revolutionary War. Legend or truth-it seems that during the harsh winter of 1777-78, the troops at Valley Forge were very low in morale. General Washington ordered a good meal to cheer and warm his troops. He was told by the cook that there was nothing but scraps in the stores of food, but the order would be obeyed. The cook improvised a soup with the heart of the meal being dumplings. The legend continues that the success of the Revolution belongs to soup and dumplings. And so it is that we still find the dumpling warming both body and soul at the table.

Product Description:
Are you intrigued by the unique ingredients and mixtures in Czech recipes? This cookbook offers you the stories that Czech food has to tell.

Can you learn all that from home? Yes!

Czech foods have deep connections with the foods of other countries in Central Europe. Since rulers and borders in this region changed a great deal through the years, the cuisine of the Czech Republic has connections to the cuisine of neighboring countries.

Czech food is not light or healthy. It uses many meats, sauces and carbs that help to keep people warm through the cold winters. Truly authentic Czech dishes usually are delicious and hearty, but not health-conscious. Many times, it is washed down with classic Czech lager, too.

While lunch is often eaten in restaurants during the work week, dinners are usually eaten at home, and consist of a warm course and hors d’oeuvres. It is served sometimes early in the evening, and sometimes late, depending on the schedules of family members.

Dinners mainly consist of beef or pork with sauce, along with a side dish, often dumplings. Goulash is also very popular in homes and restaurants alike.
