Hungarian Cookbook based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
I own two and each of my two daughters own one copy of this excellent cookbook. Recipes are comprehensive, easy to do, connected with Hungarian folk-history. Personally I own at least 50 cookbooks, many of them Hungarian and/or eastern european, including one 99 years old! This cookbook - Hungarian Cookbook, by Susan Derecskey - is the basis of many of our Christmas/Easter baking, such as poppyseed and walnut rolls. Any one can follow these recipes and earn praises!
I have a well-worn 1972 edition of The Hungarian Cookbook. The recipes are authentic and the instructions easy to follow for beginners or those new to Hungarian cooking. I grew up on my Mom's wonderful Hungarian cuisine but like any good cook, she did not have recipes. Thanks to Susan Derecskey, I consider myself a passable Hungarian cook as I keep her cookbook close at hand.
