    Interesting how the Czech cuisine differs from one place to another.

I could eat it every day. While we did have the flour dumplings, they were a dessert for us with powdered sugar or sweet jams on them.

The potato Kledniky were a hardy main dish for hard working farmers. The place I grew up was a farming community. I'm getting old. My grandfather came to America while my dad was a young boy and homesteaded. Still own the home place. Still love Kledniky, no matter how they are made. Love to hear others are enjoying this wonderful and versatile dish. Thanks for a great post and a wonderful memory.
