Re: [Slovak-World] Cookbook - Slovak (And Recipe for Paska)
- Thanks for the info -- I'm always interested in new sources for old recipes!
I have a Question -- I'd like to make Paska for Easter, and the picture in the Anniversary Slovak-American Cookbook (Catholic Slovak Ladies Cookbook) is exactly how I remember my grandmother's Paska (and who can forget taking the basket of Easter food to Church on Holy Saturday for blessing?), but the recipe in the book seems to make a ring cake, not a "top hat" loaf. Any other recipes out there for Paska, where the bread ends up round, with a higher center "puff", and not in a ring?

Subject: [Slovak-World] Cookbook - Slovak
The subject of food has come up quite a bit in the group and I once purchased a cookbook from St Michael's Church in Binghamton NY that had a designated section for traditional Slovak Christmas Eve and Easter recipes. When I contacted the church about the availability of the cookbook he told me that they are creating a new edition of the cookbook so it's not available at the present time.
However, Fr Dutko did say ".....We do have a cookbook that was complied by some clergy wives which has many many traditional recipes from Central and Eastern Europe. That book is called "Panis' Cookbook." The cost is $15, including postage. If you would like a copy, please send a check made out to "St. Michael's." The address is St. MIchael's Church Office 296 Clinton Street, Binghamton, NY 13905.
This may be of some interest to our "Slovak Cooks."
