“Halušky” Slovak Potato Pasta

Slovak cuisine is famous for many great dishes, but if only one should be selected, it would be definitely Halušky. This Slovak potato-based pasta will surprise you with its original flavor. We are going to substitute traditionally used “Brinza” cheese with more commonly available ingredients in the USA.

Note: Suitable for vegetarians if bacon is avoided

About the Series

Join us from the comfort of  your home on Zoom and learn from Czech-born Chef Tom Slepicka in these hands-on interactive classes.

The following class will include the preparation of traditional Slovak halušky with bacon, Czech meatloaf called “Sekana”, traditional Czech larger pretzels, and as a sweet end, you will learn to prepare “Buchticky s kremem” – a Czech sweet main course or dessert, that is unlike anything you’ve ever tried.
