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).
I’ve had mine since I can remember and the pages are worn and dog-eared, but I still use it, especially for unique mushroom recipes. Keep in mind that during communism, to go to the forests and pick an abundance of free food was just what many families needed.
Fabulous fungi that sustained a nation – Czechs love mushrooms!
Of course, we love the cool retro photos of these dishes too!
The photographs are from the book and taken by Josef & Marie Erhartovi, Vladimír Simer and Jiří Stach.
Note: If you are an avid mushroom picker (or know anyone who is) have we got the gift for you!
