A slava is a commemoration, in some Orthodox Christian societies, in honor of a family's patron saint. In Cudahy, Wisconsin, Helga Nikolic and many of her friends from the Serbian Orthodox Church enjoy traditional food at these events.

From the article:
Quote
Over the years Nikolic learned to cook many traditional dishes and became so involved in the cuisine that she organized monthly cooking classes at St. Nikola Serbian Orthodox Church in Cudahy in about 2002. The classes, called the Serbian Heritage Workshops, led to the publication of two cookbooks that she helped spearhead. The most recent, "Cooking in the Serbian Tradition," is still available through the church for $15.
My only weakness is, well, never mind

And you'll sleep, but they'll find you

Come back my dream into my arms, into my arms

London is drowning, and I live by the river
