Today’s post is from my friend Mila Rechcígl, Jr. It is actually entitled “Czech Contributions to American Scientific and Technological Thought” and it appears as a chapter in his book, Czechs and Slovaks in America. I never cease to be amazed at the vast amount of Czech contribution to the world. I always get a...

Czech Settlement at Slavia, Florida
Today we are looking at the Slovak and Czech settlement at Slavia, Florida. It was mostly Slovak, but a few Czechs were there, too.

Sour Lentils or Čočka na kyselo

Věrni zůstaneme is the motto of the Czech Republic Army. It means “We Shall Remain Faithful”, “We Will Remain Faithful”, or “We Remain Faithful”. After the Nazi seizure of power in 1933, Germany demanded the “return” of the ethnic German population of Czechoslovakia—and the land on which it lived—to the German Reich. In the late...
Czech Pub Classic – Utopenci (Pickled Sausages)
If searching through old Czech cookbooks, you most likely won’t find a recipe for utopence, although it is a popular Czech pub delicacy with a long tradition. They are basically chubby sausages loaded with pickles and onions in vinegar. In the Czech Republic, everyone makes utopenec themselves, according to their own recipe, usually inherited from...
