Some much-loved, wonderful dishes don't dress up even for special occasions. At this longstanding festival ("Slavonic," in this context, can be understood as "Slavic") the appearance of many menu items relied on a rather drab palette. To wit: beef goulash ("Slovak-style goulash, made by Ochlan family"), the sauteed combo of cabbage and noodles called haluski (hah-Loosh-key), and an apple-cheese palacinka (pah-lah-Cheen-kah). None colorful, all delicious. For more photos, see the EIT page on Facebook.
