Gastronomy

The grandmothers of Bácsalmás, i.e. “omas” are incomparably skillful housewives. If they want to please their grandchildren, they make a troll noodle out of some cottage cheese and eggs, which the little and big favorites whip with a lettuce or grandma’s jam while waiting. And what makes this noodle “troll”? From the curd in it, the surface becomes bulging, which is why it was given this nickname.
