47 simple, tested recipes that can work in your home. Soups, main courses and desserts just like in Hungary. Cultural insights and tips for shopping. More than 500 photos to show you step by step. Gastronomy, cooking and food have always been quintessential elements of Hungarian culture and consequently Hungarian cuisine boasts a wide array of diverse, creative dishes and unique, characteristic flavours. Our cuisine is an evolution of a thousand-year-long history based on Hungary's favourable geographical conditions as well as on the heritage of traditional farming, smallscale food and crop production. Chefparade Cooking School operates three cooking studios in Budapest where you can master the basics of Hungarian cooking as well as other cuisines in a fun and interactive atmosphere. The hands-on courses provide the opportunity to cook and ask questions side-by-side with our chefs and enjoy the camaraderie that comes from preparing and sharing a meal together. This book is a collection of memories of all the work done so far in the school. It is a tribute to our food. We partly updated the recipes to modern times, but mostly kept to the way that our mothers and grandmothers have taught us. This book is a nice album. Get ready for meat stews, casseroles, steaks, roasted pork, beef, poultry and smoked sausages. Learn how to make goulash, paprikas, stuffed cabbage, or various kinds of noodles, dumplings and potato side dishes. We hope the recipes will work in your kitchen as well. We have paid special attention to talk about ingredients and give ideas on how to substitute them, if necessary. However, we also would like to please those who are only looking to enjoy the pictures or use the book like a CafÃ© House book. This is why we have included so many photos, cultural insights, hints and tips - just enjoy reading.
