Culinaria Hungary keeps to the high standards of all the books in the Culinaria series. But since my grandfather was a Hungarian sausage-maker, and my grandmother skilled in the intricacies of Hungarian pastires, I can vouch for the quality of this fine book. This is a fascinating book going through the backroads of Hungary. The food in the csardas is wonderful and the people are real and hospitable. It is good to see the culture of the country that was occupied by many nations and incorporated their food into it's traditions.

Beautiful photographs take you on a tour from the local villages to inside the kitchen where you will find the final product.Enormous variety of magnificent photographs and tempting recipes together with knowledgeable text that is easy for readers and cooks of all skill levels to understand.
Having just returned from living and teaching in Hungary near the Hortobagy for the past 5 months, I find this book to be invaluable. It provides essential information for understanding the Hungarian way of life in regards to the kitchen.

The traditional Hungarian food is very rich in paprika, cabbage, root vegetables, pork, soups, and of course, palinka and wine. They certainly love their sweets and breads.

I am returning to Hungary for another 12 months and will bring this with me. My Hungarian colleagues at the university will find this book very interesting. I will get their opinions on the recipes and see if there are changes or additions that they can recommend.
Just okay. Good broad overview of the country and the food from all regions of Hungary. I have the book on Germany that belongs to same Culinaria series and I thought this book would be the same. It's not. Kind of different. Not as many recipes. So if you want to read more about Hungary and its food, buy this book. If you want to learn to cook Hungarian food the right way, it's not very useful.
A excellent cookbook of Hungarian recipes. Is full of information about the country of Hungary, it's people, traditions and cuisine. Is very interesting reading and contains delicious main dishes and deserts. Liked it so well I had bought a second one for a family member as a gift.
I'm very happy with this book. The recipes I've made so far reminded me of home. I especially loved
the creamed spinach recipe (spenot), which turned out just perfect. (I followed the book's recipe to the
letter.) Not everyone will like this particular dish, but this is what I grew up with and I always loved it.
I have numerous Hungarian cookbooks--some from Hungary--but this is by far the best.

I'm also impressed that on one of the first few pages there's a picture of carp soup. I'm originally from Baja,
Hungary, where this soup is served at Christmas at many family's tables. There's nothing I've ever tasted in
the 50 years of my life that compares to a properly made carp soup--absolutely nothing. I'm so impressed
that this book gives this dish the attention it deserves.

If you think that carp soup is a joke, do a Google search using the following key words:
baja hungary fish soup festival

However, don't bother trying to make the soup...

Update: If you feel adventurous, I put together a web page which has the Engish version of the recipe:
My mother ordered 7 copies now through me to give as a gift to members of the family. With a Hungarian heritage, and a family that loves to cook and dine, this book provides that link back to my roots. My children use the recipes in the book to make different dishes and find the instructions easy to follow and understand. The range of recipes also provide for different tastes reflecting different regions of the country. Lots of authentic hungarian recipes which are truly delicious
"Hungaricum" means uniquely Hungarian, and Culinaria Hungary is a sampling of authentic Hungaricum.

Here is a book that is part cultural study of Hungary, part beautiful photographic extravaganza, and part recipe book. I think it is superb and recommend it to anyone who travels on a Storyfest Journey to Hungary with me. My favorite parts of the book are on the food traditions of the Hungarian Great Plain with its interesting sketches of Hungarian cowboys, outlaws, and gypsy musicians. I also love the section about the unique Budapest Cafés and their lovely litany of unique desserts -- Gundel Palacsinta, Dobos Torte, Flodni, and expecially Rigo Jancsi. Read the scandalous tale of how the Gypsy violinist ran off with an American heiress and brought fame to this delicious triple-chocolate dessert.

Culinaria Hungary keeps to the high standards of all the books in the Culinaria series. But since my grandfather was a Hungarian sausage-maker, and my grandmother skilled in the intricacies of Hungarian pastires, I can vouch for the quality of this fine book.
Beautiful cookbook. I enjoyed reading the history that's included. Great color pictures. I used this book exclusively when our Priest requested a Hungarian dinner. 'Even did the fish soup in the traditional way over a fire. This book and recipes did disappoint.
Great book - I have to loose the weight I put on in Hungary before I make anything out of it, but none the less I am thrilled with all the information it contains over the recipes, especially on holidays, traditions and so much more!
