Every year in the picturesque village of Kazár, nestled in Nógrád county, locals and visitors alike come together to celebrate the beloved tradition of kazári laska during the Kazár Laska Festival. This unique culinary delight has become an important part of the village’s cultural heritage.

The Palóc people, residing in Kazár, form a vibrant folk group that adds a unique cultural touch to the community. They are deeply rooted in preserving age-old traditions, among others their culinary gems like kazári laska. Kazári laska is a kind of potato flatbread, rolled out into a thin circle and toasted in a dry frying pan. The flatbreads are generously filled with either cottage cheese, ground poppy seeds or walnuts, and rolled up similar to palacsinta.

Hungarian cottage cheese

This is what Hungarian túró looks like

You often ask me what kind of cottage cheese (or curd cheese or farmer's cheese - call it what you want) I use in the recipes. In Hungary the store-bought cottage cheese is dry and crumbly as you can see in the picture. So if a recipe calls for túró, I mean this type. If you can't obtain túró, you can try to make your own from whole milk. Click on the link below.

Metric system vs cup

In Hungary metric units are in use, all the recipes on this website are based on this system, so a kitchen scale is necessary. Since I’m not familiar with cup as a measurement unit, I convert grams to cups by using an online converter. The values in brackets, therefore, are only approximate volumes, so, please, double-check them before you start cooking.
