thought bryndza went more smoothly, but I don't recall it much.
Regardless, thank you for the correction -- I should have said "in the
Wallachian culture of the Western Carpathians," which spills over to
the adjacent regions of Podhale and the Moravian Valas~sko. Although
the EU regulation treats the bryndza of Slovakia and the Podhale
bryndza as separate products, the difference is rather cosmetic.

- Thank you for the tip on buying cheese at Trader Joe's. Was it Lubos that
said that? I LOVE that store which is about a 40 minutes drive from my home
but I will try that Israel feta. Now I need a good recipe. There is
probably one on your site, right?
Sorry I haven't been participating much here lately, but do scan the emails
I hope to attend the Slovak Festival in Cleveland which I believe is in September.
