New Public Enemy #1: Stolen ATFT Collected Czech Family Recipes Books

A New Port Richey woman, Judy P. frantically called the Pasco County Sheriff’s Department to report a theft of a major artwork from her collection. The item allegedly stolen was a copy of Karren Doll Tolliver’s latest book, A Travel for Taste – Collected Czech Family Recipes. It was cleverly disguised as a shipment from Amazon.com.

My NEW BOOK – ATFT Collected Czech Family Recipes

A Travel for Taste – Collected Czech Family Recipes

I’m thrilled to announce that today is the official release of my latest book:

A Travel for Taste – Collected Czech Family Recipes!
It is a revision of the first edition which included some non-Czech recipes. I rewrote it to include only Czech recipes. This new one has additional Czech recipes as well.

The best part of the book to me is the fact that the recipes are introduced by stories and photos from my travels. Each recipe has a narrative about how I came to have the recipe. And each dish is an authentic family recipe from Czech friends. read more
