Book Description

June 2 2009
These enticing Old World Hungarian recipes were brought to America by the author's grandparents, but they have been updated to accommodate today's dietary concerns and faster-paced lifestyles. The author also explores the seasonal and ceremonial observances still practiced by Hungarian Americans: bacon cookouts, fall grape festivals, weddings, Christmas, New Year's, and Easter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Authentic as they come! April 21 2001
As I read through this cookbook soon after purchase, I felt as though I was re-living my years growing up in a Second generation Hungarian Household in Northern Ohio. All of my grandparents were born in Hungary. The recipes are just as the ones I too learned first hand from my grandmother. I spent much of my time as a child in her kitchen. It also gives flexibility to the modern cook using ingredients that are available. The stories and traditions the author shares are ones that I have shared with my own children. This cookbook is one that I will definitely give copies of as gifts to family members! Thanks for the memories, Yolanda!

5.0 out of 5 stars Delicious recipes July 23 2001
By Silvia
I received the book as a gift. The meals I have made taste just like my mothers did. I never knew how to cook Hungarian food; the instructions are easy to follow and don't take very long to make. How wonderful to enjoy this delicious food again. Each time I use this cookbook I'm ready to plan the next meal. Thank you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Written with memories, traditions, and lore Jan. 12 2004
Now in a newly expanded edition, Hungarian Cookbook: Old World Recipes For New World Cooks by Yolanda Nagy Fintor (who learned cooking from her Hungarian mother) introduces the reader to a culinary wealth of truly great recipes that have been passed down through generations of Hungarian cooks via an oral family tradition. Featuring not only recipes with meticulous instructions, but also memories, traditions, and lore from those who have prepared and shared such dishes as New World Creamy Potato Soup, Sweet And Sour Cabbage, and Beer Bread Sticks, the Hungarian Cookbook is very highly recommended for anyone seeking to learn about, create, and taste the flavors and culinary traditions of Hungary.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great cookbook Feb. 16 2010
We thought this was a great cookbook. My boyfriend is of Hungarian descent and his parents were in their 40's when he was born. They are both deceased and there are no easy-to-access recipes from his growing up years. He has found, in this cookbook, memories of things long forgotten,because it is more than just a cookbook. It gives glimpses of heritage, and it suggests more modern ways to cook the dishes as well. We originally got this from the library, and were pleased to be able to get our own copy. Thanks!

1.0 out of 5 stars terrible cookbook Nov. 1 2002
By A Customer
DO NOT buy this book if you like Hungarian cooking. Its idea of a recipe is to cook something as bland as possible and add, mmm, sour cream, or maybe canned tomato juice, or maybe bacon. And a little bit of paprika. I only bought it based on the feedback.
