A freshly griddled crepe is essential to a good palacsinta, such as this one rolled with apricot jam ($2); it drooped, but I brightened right up. Also prepared for this annual event and shown below: noodles and cabbage; the sausages called kolbasz; a rice cake, essentially a very firm version of the pudding; and what the ladies of the church labeled mak cake and dios cake, rolled with ground poppyseeds and crushed walnuts respectively. In Hungary this pastry is often called kalács (Cahl-ahtch), and, among the Slovak speakers in my extended family, koláč (Cole-ahtch); in both cases, literally, "cake." It's related, as you've guessed, to the koláče (co-Lah-cheh) that appear once a year at the Czech Independence Day Street Festival.
