Format: Kindle Edition
I like the cover and the format/layout of the recipes in the PRINTED version of this book and the recipes are easy to read. However, I find the content of this as a complete cookbook completely lacking. Most of the recipes are not bohemian which was a disappointing. I could not make one complete meal from this cookbook unless wild game was included and then there are only a few venison recipes which is not readily available. There are no pork, beef or any meats other than venison included for a meat supper dish. Main courses, including the promised jitrence, are missing from this book. I think if more true bohemian recipes were included in the print book and arranged into proper categories that this could eventually be a good bohemian cookbook. The czech word for the recipe needs to be added. Example: Sweet Breads (Kolache) It helps us recognize recipes. I was mostly disappointed in the eBook which I did want. Unfortunately, the ebook has not been properly formatted for kindle or ebooks and the text is all over the place. Page numbers are useless and unnecessary for ereaders. It needs much more work.

I love family and community cookbooks and have collected many of them over the years, so I was hoping for a real gem in a book the author describes as "a collection of recipes from mid-19th century Bohemia." Nothing could be further from the mark.

First, almost none of the included recipes are either from the 19th century or Bohemian. (Bohemia is a province of the old Austro-Hungarian Empire.) By far the greatest majority of the included recipes are from pre-1970's 20th Century and are of the sort commonly found in cookbooks of that era. Others are later additions - Fudge that calls for marshmallow cream, Brownies (definitely American!) that call for Hershey's syrup, and Jello Cake to name but a few.

The two recipes that I could identify as most likely originating in Bohemia are incomplete. The recipe for Liver Dumplings calls for liver, flour, eggs, salt and onions but give absolutely no proportions or directions. While this may be "historical", later generations (never mind perfect strangers) will find this much less than useful.

The same is true of the Kolace recipe, titled "Sweet Dough." There are no instructions for shaping or filling, the only reference to kolace (spelled koulatche) reads "Mix lard and flour till crumbly and put on top of the cooked prunes before baking. No prunes, cooked or otherwise are mentioned elsewhere in the recipe. How very tragic that the two family recipes most deserving of preservation for future generations are so incomplete as to be entirely useless.

And then there is the formatting. Author Tim Krause did include a Table of Contents of a sort at the front of the book, but it is not interactive and features page numbers, thus making it less than useful in a Kindle book.
