Learn how to make famous Slovak potato-based pasta, Halušky, from the comfort of your home in this virtual cooking class.

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
