Hello friends! Long time no see, or should I say long time, no hear from me. More on that later, I promise a new post very soon.
I received an email from Dennis Ragan and Jim Ragan informing me that there is going to be a special broadcast of Jim Ragan’s documentary,“Flowers and Roots, Ambassador of the Arts,” on Sat. Nov 5 at 9 pm on “Filmmakers Corner.” Arina Films had chosen to document his life in the arts, including the influence his Duquesne upbringing and ethnic roots have had on his poetry, drama, and films, as well as his role on the international stage.
BE SURE TO TUNE INTO WQED ON SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 5th AT 9 PM.
Dennis, Jim’s nephew has also sent me some valuable Hunky information as we roll into the beginning of the holiday season! Learn how to make a REAL iconic Hunky dish…
“Real Potato” Halusky Class
For anyone interested in learning how to make “real” halusky like Baba (grandma) made it, I’ll be doing a cooking class at Westmoreland County Community College in Youngwood (on the Duquesne side of Greensburg). This is the real stuff made with potatoes and flour (not noodles), a real Slovak dish brought to this country by our grandparents and great-grandparents. The class is this Tuesday, Nov. 1, from 6 pm to 9 pm. I do a brief talk about halusky, then we proceed to the WCCC culinary kitchen to make it. Then we have a halusky meal afterward. I’m from Duquesne of course and have been teaching this course for about seven years. WCCC charges a tuition fee of $22 plus $5 material fee. To register, contact Sylvia Detar, director of Continuing Education, at WCCC. 800-262-2103 x 4190 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org
