Mushroom-Stuffed-Tomatoes-and-Mushroom-Burgers-Topped-with-Egg
Retro Bohemian Mushroom Cuisine is the name that came to me when I decided to share these photos from my 80’s cookbook, Jihočeská houbařská kuchařka (South Bohemian Mushroom Cookbook).

Prague-1968
On August 21, 1968 dozens of tanks rolled through the streets and aimed at the crowds of students and protesters. Shooting was heard, screams and cries. People were in shock. They could not believe that the invaders were Russians – the same Russians who had liberated them in 1945 at the close of World War II....
