No one can cook as well as one’s own mother. But my girlfriend’s mother Olga comes a close second. More importantly, in a country not renowned for its formidable cuisine, her cooking easily outshines what is available in most restaurants.

With this in mind, Englishmaninslovakia.com has started our own recipe section (with an ample sprinkling of help from Olga) as a tribute to Slovak recipes which hopefully, in time, will get your stomach rumbling!!
