Sojourn in Slovakia: The Sequel. Day 3. A Special Sunday: Part III

 Sunday, June 17, 2012


This post is going to be short and sweet... We had a fantastic lunch at the home of my cousins, Jan and Emilia.  Emilia's cooking is outstanding.  Here are some pics of some of the delicious Slovak specialities we enjoyed.

Milkine Vyprazane Rezne  Milka's "Fried Steaks" (Chicken), Potatoes, Cucumbers. Recipe for the chicken can be found in my book Baba's Kitchen: Slovak & Rusyn Recipes, 2nd Ed.
Chicken Soup



Holubky/Halupki (stuffed cabbage)

Nut & Poppyseed Rolls

Part of my "immersion genealogy" experience. Family history is SO MUCH MORE than just names, dates, and places, or boxes, lines, and charts.  It was wonderful to experience the traditional foods and customs of my Slovak heritage.

That's a great way to term it, Lisa: immersion genealogy! I totally agree with your point about family history. We do a much greater service if we can pass along a rich contextual story of our ancestors and relatives for those who will never get the chance to meet them.
