The cover picture is gorgeous (and yes, the recipe for the bread does appear to be included).

There are about 45 recipes here (I may have miscounted, but I think that's pretty close.) Some are "variations on a theme," meaning a main recipe is given and then there are instructions such as "prepare as in this, but add this and this instead." I don't have a problem with that, personally.

Several recipes are relatively new to me and several contain recipes with ingredients that may be a new experience to some American cooks - but you know what? I'd give liver dumplings a shot. I'd probably try anything listed in this book - with some reservations due to the information provided, noted below.

The first Tripe Soup recipe doesn't really give complete information on how to cook the tripe. I gather it's to be cooked on the stovetop in water, but I'm not sure.

The Fish Soup recipe says "add roe to soup when you add vegetables" but doesn't indicate where the roe is to come from. It also doesn't specify what type of fish to use.

The Mushroom and Barley soup seems to have an ingredient missing in the list, calling for 1-1/2 cups of diced cooked (something). From the instructions, I'd say it's meat, but can't be sure of what type.

There are some typos and problematic text here - some examples include bullion versus bouillon, 1/4 "rice or barely," "in placed a notice of the meat," "Marsh garlic with a pinch of salt." The Kidney soup also has a *very* unfortunate typo for the word "add" in the phrase "brown flour in 1/4 cup butter and ______ to kidneys."

Under Dumplings for Soups, the Liver Soup Dumpling instructions are confusing. "Cream butter with salt. Mix into a stiff dough. Test dough to make sure it does not stick together.

Czech Cooking Soups and Goulash was a very good book for unique soups and goulashes. Many of the soups recipes I had been searching for and finally found them. The Liver Egg Drops(I think that is what they were called)can be made for the Caraway Soup. It was one of my favorite soups growing up with the egg drops noodles. Not all the recipes are ones I would cook, as I dislike liver, but there are many more I can't wait to try.

If you want a quick handbook for Czech typical cooking here it is. The book explain in a very simple way the traditional pillars of the Czech cooking in a very quick way but very useful.
