  3. My husband is Czech so your videos are wonderful. What meal do you serve these pancakes with please? Are they served on their own or as a side dish?

    1. Thank you, I am glad you like them. 🙂 I eat them without any side dish. Sometimes I make them as a main meal, when I don’t know what to cook or don’t feel like cooking. 😉

  4. My grandmother used to make these and as I was watching you fry them I could almost smell the yumminess! Sometimes on a Saturday afternoon she’d just decide to make them for a hot snack. I’ve not had one in about 30 years…I think it’s time I start making some.

    1. Thank you Shawn for sharing this sweet memory of your grandma. Wow you didn’t have these for 30 years. Definitely time to make some. 🙂 I hope mine tastes as good as the ones your grandma made.

  5. I love your videos, it really takes the guess work out of trying your recipes.
    Although my mom was born in Germany she is born of a czech mom and dad and claims czech ancestry as do I. Love love love the website which I found by accident as I searched “strudel in czech”.
    What a find!! God bless.

  6. I have not yet tried any of your recipes but I have to tell you they look so good. These potatoes are one of my favorite dishes and I am going to try these tonight. Thank you for taking the time to do these videos because without them we would never be able to experience true Czech food and actually see how to do it. Love these videos! The only reason I have not tried them is because a friend just sent me the link a couple of days ago … thank you again!

    1. 🙂 Thank you Barbarie for your lovely message. It put smile to my face. 🙂 I hope Latkes turned out great and you enjoyed them. Wishing you all the success in making more of my recipes. 🙂

  7. I am Czech, made the sauerkraut tonight with breaded pork chops and spartzle. It was delicious. My family loved the kraut. I never thickened it with flour before, I am a convert. I will use your recipe from now on. I have never been to the Czech Republic before, it is on my bucket list. My grandparents were born in Prague. Can’t wait to go th Czech Republic.

    1. I am glad to hear how much you all enjoyed the sauerkraut Paula! I hope you can visit Czech Republic soon! You will love it!
