Handmade soup pasta has always been an essential component of Sunday’s bowl of soup. This pasta is made from dough cut into small diamond shapes that are rolled onto small slatted, wooden boards with a special stick. After the pasta is shaped, it is flicked (odfrkne sa) with the stick onto the pile with the rest of the pasta, which is where the name frkacule (say ferka-tsoole) comes from. The pasta is dried over the next day and is then stored.
Making frkacule is very time consuming and it is not a job for everyone – it takes a lot of perseverance and experience. This makes it difficult to come by, and you will mostly find it only in local shops in Modra–Kráľová.
