On Wednesday 17th February, the seventh year of a competition in preparing the Slovakian national meal called “Halusky Competition” took place on the occasion of Slovakian Culture Days. The Masné Krámy restaurant’s chef Luděk Hauser became the winner for the second time, having presented the jury and attending spectators with his original meal called “Butcher’s halusky with lamb ribs”. The winning halusky are embalmed with smoked cheese, bacon and herbs as well as smothered with cream. A part of the halusky is coloured with beetroot. The meal is decorated with baked garlic, which goes very well with lamb ribs baked until pink.
“I created the winning recipe for the Butcher’s halusky myself. However, the success is naturally based on good-quality halusky, which are prepared in Budvar restaurant’s kitchen using honest natural ingredients without the presence of semi-products or artificial ingredients,” says the Masné Krámy restaurant’s chef Luděk Hauser. All visitors of the Masné Krámy restaurant can savour these “home-made” halusky during the Slovakian Cuisine Days from 17th to 20th February. In addition, the restaurant will see a cymbal band perform on Thursday and Friday.
