If you ask one hundred Slovak people to tell you one and only one Slovak traditional meal, usually at least 90 of them will say "bryndzove halusky" ("bryndzové halušky"), small dumplings made of potato dough with sheep cheese and topped with scrambled bacon ("Speck" in German).
600 gm raw potatoes
300 gm fine whole wheat flour
200 gm bryndza of feta cheese
100 gm smoked bacon
1 salt and pepper
Grate the peeled raw potatoes, mix with flour and add a little water if necessary. Add salt to your taste. Halushky are formed with a knife or a teaspoon on a wooden plate washed with cold water and thrown into bubbling salted water. Boil a little. When it emerges on the surface, take out, rinse with water and mix with feta cheese. Serve with bacon, cut in small pieces and fried in butter. Bon Appetit.
Bryndza from the feta cheese: Wash the feta cheese with water, grate and mix with butter to bryndza consistency.
Parenica, ostiepok, korbacik
("oštiepok", "korbáčik") different sorts of cheese, either smoked or not.
Treska a cold salad made of codfish, mayonnaise and some vegetables. Quite popular snack in the Bratislava region, and lately also in other parts of Slovakia. Buy it packed in supermarket or visit a buffet and ask for "pätnásť deka tresky a dva rohlíky" (five ounces of treska and two rolls).
