This was a great recipe swap idea, Conda! I've scrapped about Poteca in my family and community, but I've never done a recipe card. Here is Poteca p. 1 and Poteca p. 2.

This traditional nut bread was something that my grandmother's very good friends, the Petrovich Sisters, always made at Christmas and gifted to our family. My grandmother would make it as well. Today, we still make it in my family. If you went to church socials or bake sales in my hometown, there were always many, many versions of poteca, potica or povitica offered at St. Mary's. Our parish was filled with Croatian, Slovakian and Slovenian immigrant families who came to the area to work in the coal mines. We even had a Polka Mass to celebrate the heritage of the parish. Two of my great-grandparents immigrated as children from a village in what was Austria-Hungary, but is now known as Slovakia. Their village was located sort of in the middle of a triangle between Krakow, Budapest and Lviv. They immigrated years apart and came to two different states upon arriving, but they must have been tight knit as a resettled community to find each other all that time later and to have originally been baptized in the same small church in Austria-Hungary.

I might look for a German recipe as my grandmother was from there. 

I found this information on the internet:

What is an example of a ethnic food?
 
 
Broadly speaking, ethnic foods are defined by others outside of the respective ethnic groups as cuisines originating from the heritage and culture of specific ethnic groups. For example, Chinese food, Mexican food, Italian food, etc., are only considered to be ethnic foods outside of their respective countries

Here's my second card for the swap: Lebanese Lentil Pilaf

My good friend in high school was of Lebanese heritage and her mother (and her aunt) were wonderful cooks. I always enjoyed eating at their house! :) 

@A-M Almost all of us in the US have ancestors from other countries and, if we are lucky, many of those recipes have come down to us.  It's possibly the same in Australia. Call them "ethnic" or "heritage." In either case, I look forward to seeing your German recipe!
