The Humble Kolache - Czech Meets Texan

Post by
Scott Francis

I love Kolaches.? I didn't know that until I moved to Texas.? More accurately, I didn't know it until I had a project in Dallas and was commuting by car up to Dallas on a regular basis with a colleague - and stopping at the Czech Stop, in West, Texas.

I didn't think too much about Kolaches except as a fun treat to save for road trips from Austin to Dallas.? But over the years I've seen more and more Kolaches here - in pretty much every doughnut shop, but also in other Czech-oriented bakeries around the state.

When I saw this article about the state of the Kolache, and like the author, I think the fact that a Czech pastry has been adopted so wholeheartedly by Texans is just a great example of how great food works its way into the American palate.? There's an inherent experimentation here with basic food staples - Chili, tacos, burgers, fries, chips, salsa, anything deep fried (at the Texas State Fair) - add the Kolache to the list. And the article does a fantastic job of talking about the slow process of discovery and incorporation.? But somehow they wrote the whole article without referencing The Czech Stop - a place with 4.5 stars on Yelp and over 313 reviews - by far most of them for 5 stars.

I, for one, welcome our new Kolache overlords.
