Quasi Renaissance Man and his family are doing okay, and they’re here in the US.
From Christmastime, here’s his family’s recipe for potica, a Slovenian kind of filled bread/cake/cake roll.
It’s also traditional in parts of Italy, because Italy used to own large bits of Eastern Europe. It’s also claimed by Croatia and the former Yugoslavia. Slovenian immigrants spread it all over Europe and the US.
Recipe that admits you can use other fillings. Anybody who’s surprised that they include poppyseed fillings loses his Mitteleuropa cred for a week.
