My housemate who is from Czech and who calls herself Bohemian (Bohemia being what's now the western half of the Czech Republic) owes me a couple of translations of medieval recipes (I swapped for some jewellery I made her - the wonderful art of barter in the SCA!). I will see if I can stir her on those.

There is somecstuff in the 15th century German corpus and specifically one of the Munich fragments (Münchener Kochbuchhandschriften' published by Tupperware Germany, edited by Trude Ehlert, ISBN
3-403-03364-3) contains four recipes desigfnated as 'Hungarian or Bohemian', though the text itself is Middle High German. 

Generally, there are a few recipes specifically designated 'Bohemian', and it has been argued that some recipes referred to as 'pagan' (heidnisch) are also East European. 

Poke me not to forget to translate the Munich fragment. I'm rather busy these days, but I should have time for these.
