It sounds like such comfort food!
PM me if you'd like to meet at Flappy's some morning :)
Jkath, amazing coincidence...my grandma came to U.S. from Hungary (perhaps around that time). She met my grandpa here in the US who was from Poland & the rest is history. Smiled when I read the article, because my grandma (probably like everyone else's grandma), would say - I don't have it written down, just watch me.
If you'd like to give the dish a try, in the market (perhaps in the ethnic section) buy a box of kasha. The directions for kasha varnishkas (bow tie noodles/farfelle) is probably on the back of the box. She also made dishes like liver, meat, kasha or potato knishes, Hungarian goulash, flanken, kreplach, so many comfort food dishes. Wish I could duplicate. Hoping people will jump in & share.
Also, googled up Petrillo's. Saw all rave reviews. Thank you for sharing with us & the invite. So glad I found this site & the folks here.
