What on earth is Haluski? And I fail to see how the Latin speaking Romanians can possibly have stolen a Roman cheese from Serbs. What happened, did some ancient Serbian explorer visit Rome on an excursion from the steppes and teach them how to make cheese? Maybe you should think of writing a novel: The Cascaval Code? Anathema indeed!  ;)

It's derived from my all time favorite OC.net post here http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php?topic=6373.msg83558#msg83558

I thought Haluski was Romanian... ooops :-\

Good luck with the novel and the historical revisonism! Haluski is not Romanian (not even possible given the lack of a 'k'). From what I gather it seems to be the same as sarma? If that is the case and if sarma are stuffed cabbage leaves (usually sour, made like sauerkraut in Romania and stuffed with mince meat, rice, herbs etc.), then the word for one is also sarma and the plural (which is what you will usually hear) is sarmale. Personally, I think you stole those two, but I'd have to do further research.

I guess you're with me on the entirely Orthodox origins of baclava, though?

I thought Haluski was Carpo-Rus or Russian; the best Haluski dish I ever had came from a Carpatho-Rus priest.

Don't you guys know that the Srbs are slavicised Basques? Basques were the very first people in Europe, we're talking cro-magnon times..  ;)

Perhaps, but as galusti are dumplings that would mean that there was a fair change in meaning as well as pronunciation. Glad to see that my offhand remark about cheese has led to yet another discussion on Balkan food! It's always fun to rib the Serbs here :D (mainly because they all seem quite happy to take it as the joke it is intended for).
