My Grandma Drake's maiden name was Lucanz, from Slovenia, and she worked in the auto fabrics industry in Cleveland, and our cousins on my dad's side are the Svrga's in Cleveland Ohio. She used to visit when I was a kid growing up in VA and bring a suitcase full of Slovenian sausages, including blood sausage and jalutiz (sp?)! We watched her with fascination, on Christmas visits, like Claudia above, as she took up the whole dining room table with a white cloth to roll out the potica dough. It was THE BEST, our favorite holiday treat of all time. Then a couple of decades after she passed away, I met my husband in California, who had 2 lively Hungarian aunts, and I was amazed and so excited to discover that they made potica for Christmas! Well, I came to find out it was called beigli... the Hungarian version, walnut.... they would make it in the same way at my grandma used to, and, so, I fell madly in love with my husband and his family after spending our first Christmas together at their houses. haha! Since they both recently passed, we have not had this amazing treat, and until I learn to pick up the tradition of making it, we are very much looking forward to trying your traditional Slovenian potica, to continue my Slovenian family tradition and pay homage to our Hungarian aunts as well, this Christmas season.

In Cleveland when I was young, I would work with my mother to make Potica. It was day long work - Saturdays. My mom made potica for my dad and his co-workers. during October-December and in March/April for holidays. My grandmother (Slovenian) was the first that I know of who trained my mom (Italian/Slovenian). As everyone says this is the best for holidays.

My ancestors are from Semic and Metlika, Slovenia. Since we have relatives in the Denver area, do you have a store we could visit and buy your potica in Evergreen? I was looking for an address on your website, but didn't see one. I look forward to hearing from you. Joe

Holidays in my youth meant family baking, and more baking. My sisters have made potica but I have not. (I can make spanakopita.) When my own kids were small we'd get a loaf on Christmas sent by Express mail from my mom or a sis. We moved away from NY to NM in 89 so holidays meant no potica w/o the mail. Your pictures look wonderful; I look forward to visiting your shop in Evergreen TO BUY some in person.

My Dad's family immigrated from Yugoslavia and his sisters taught me how to make Potica. One of my favorite memories growing up in in the Denver, Co area.

I am Croatian - but your Potica tastes just like the Potica my Grandmothers , Mother, and Aunt made. Thanks for reviving the memories of that great taste. My wife is Irish and German and she loves your Potica as well.
