Are You Craving Czech Bread and Mustard? (Prahnete po Ceskem Chlebu a Horcici?)

Some of the things that every Czech person living in America misses are the bread and mustard from the home country. The standard bread in the US leaves something to be desired and there just doesn’t seem to be any mustard quite like the “Kremska Horcice.” I have been in search of something even remotely similar to these Czech products but am always disappointed. I finally discovered two products that are remarkably close. Panera Bread (http://www.panerabread.com) sells bread called Stone-Milled Rye that is unbelievably like Czech bread. The only problem is that most places only bake three loafs per night so call ahead or go early if you want to get some. Mustard was more of a challenge and after buying at least 25 different types of mustards over the last 10 years I have finally found a product by Emeril called “Kicked Up Horseradish” mustard. I have some Kremska Horcice at home still from my last visit to Czech so I was able to compare them. I have to say that this is the closest I have found (but a little more sour) and I think you will not be disappointed. This mustard is sold in most grocery stores. Enjoy!

Jedny z veci po kterych kazdy Cech zijici v Americe postrada jsou chleba a horcice z jejich domova. Po Americkem chlebu lze tezce touzit a neco jako kremzska horcice se snad ani neda najit. Hledal jsem neco podobneho jako tyto dva produkty a vzdycky jsem se zklamal, ale konecne jsem nasel neco co je pozoruhodne podobne. Panera Bread (http://www.panerabread.com) prodava chleba jmenem Stone-Milled Rye a ten je neuveritelne podobny ceskemu chlebu. Jediny problem je, ze vetsina jejich prodejen pece pouze tri chleby za noc, takze si musite dopredu zavolat a nebo jit do prodejny velmi brzy aby na vas vyslo. Najit horcici byl tezsi ukol a musim poznamenat, ze po nakoupeni nejmene 25. ruznych horcic za dobu 10-ti let jsem konecne nasel product Emeril jmenem “Kicked Up Horseradish.” Mel jsem jeste doma pravou ceskou kremzskou horcici z me posledni cesty a tak jsem byl schopen je porovnat. Musim rict, ze tato horcice je nepodobnejsi ze vsech co jsem vyzkousel (ale trosku kyselejsi) a myslim si, ze vy taky nebudete zklamani. Tato horcice se prodava ve vetsine prodejen s potravinami. Tak si take uzijte te dobroty!

  1. Ahoj CzechFolks,
    ja jsem tu horcici zkusila. Je trosku kyselejsi, ale zkusila jsem pridat brown sugar a bylo to super. Doporucuju.

    ENG: Add brown sugar and it is like Czech Kremzska horcice.

  2. I think, the Russian Rye by Bimbo bakeries USA (oroweat.com) is quite similar to the Czech bread too. The only issue is the mustard. I have found Dijonnaise by Hellmann’s to be similar to the Czech one.

    Does anyone know how to thicken the regular yellow French’s mustard?

  3. Hi Martin, you can try to add brown sugar that will also make it sweeter. I don’t know what to do if you would like to keep the taste the same. You can also post your question in our forum in “How to…” section.
