THE COMPETITION in cooking and eating – as fast as possible – the traditional Slovak meal, bryndzové halušky, has become already a tradition. There are several such competitions, but the one organised in the village of Turecká, close to the central-Slovak regional city Banská Bystrica, is maybe the most renowned.
