  1. It is very interesting, when the americans are surprise with czech fry cheese ,but they are eating deep fry breaded cheese sticks :):):)

    1. Yes, true 😀 But ours tastes better. 😉

      1. This was wonderful! You’re right! Definitely better than what they sell here in the US! Do you have a recipe for hot chocolate? I recently was in contact with a distant relative, and she referred me to you site/cookbook!

        1. I don’t have this recipe yet.

  2. Thank you Kristyna for posting this smazeny syr recipe. It is really really good! We made it with Eidam cheese, served it with french fries and your tatarska omacka recipe. Everything was so tasty, just like in Czech Republic 🙂

    1. Yay!!! 🙂 That is great you were able to find Eidam cheese. I am glad you enjoyed it and now you can make it anytime. 🙂

    2. Where did you get Eidam??

      1. I used Monterey Jack since I didn’t find Eidam. Here some people find Edam which is similar to Eidam. I actually like Monterey Jack the most.

  3. Hi Kristyna!

    A few weeks ago I made the breaded fried cheese along with tartar sauce and french fries. My husband gobbled up several (and I mean several) pieces. He really misses the czech food his dad use to make and was thrilled when I began making your recipes. The ones I have made so far are so yummy!

  5. Hello Alena! I just came across your website through your YouTube channel yesterday. I used your “Šunková pomazánka” recipe for our New Year’s Eve chlebicky and my husband (from Prague) absolutely loved it. I typically just put butter and then toppings, but wanted to make it extra special this year – so glad I found your site!

    Tonight I’m trying this recipe – Smažený sir – as it’s one of my favorite Czech dishes – after Svíčková of course 🙂 We return to Praha each Christmas and it’s the first thing I order.

    Thank you for sharing your recipes! šťastný nový rok!

    1. Hi Monica! Glad to hear your husband enjoyed the spread. 🙂 I hope you enjoyed Smazeny syr as well. 🙂 That is wonderful you can visit Prague every Christmas. 🙂 Stastny novy rok!

  6. I am looking for a recipe not sure of the name, a bun with fruit in it and then cut up and grated ginger cookie and burnt butter and syrup

    1. Do you mean fruit dumplings? They can have many different toppings.

  7. I went to CZ first time a month ago and fell in love with the food. I’m so thankful for your English/American translations so I can cook for my Czech boyfriend (and myself!).

    1. I am glad you enjoy our Czech food. Your Czech boyfriend will be very happy. 🙂

  8. this was our son’s favorite meal in Czech Republic. He was then the brave 12 yr old and was not interested in his parents’ country. Now, so many years later, he is remembering the trip fondly and wishing to go back. At your expense, son!

    1. Haha! At least he is being appreciative now. 😉

  9. Thanks so much for this! I’m in Northern California and found Edam cheese at Sprouts grocery store!

    1. Wow! How amazing! Thank you for letting me know. Wish to have Sprouts closer. But will keep an eye on it if I see Sprouts.

  10. I’m looking for your tarter sauce recipe. In your video you said it would be available but I guess I’m not looking in the right spot.

    I just returned from 4 days in Prague. if I’d know about this then I would have tried it for sure!!!!

    Looking forward to making this!

    1. It is here on my blog. Just do search for Tartar sauce.

  11. just came back from germany….one of the stops was prague….first night there had blue cheese fried cheese ….oh my gosh so good!….

    1. Glad to hear you enjoyed it! It is delicious!

  12. I always use swiss ementhal when preparing this dish.
    It’s nice and chewy. I serve it with sour cream.
    I used to work in a czech restaurant and thats how it was made.
    I am of Czech decent and my grandmother and aunt used to teach me different dishes.

    1. That is wonderful 🙂
