Pancake Hungarian style


Hungarian Cooking Course – Menu A


Sour Cherry Soup

The soups are very important part of Hungarian gastronomy. We eat different soups every day.

This soup stands out from the other soups because it is sweet and we eat it cool with whipped cream. In summer I cook it with fresh fruit from my mother’s garden, in winter I prefer the frozen sour cherry. I love this soup because at the same time it is present the sweet and sour.

On the cooking course I will tell the secret how you can make this soup with other fruits, for example apple, apricot, strawberry, raspberry, blueberry, plum, or pear.

Main ingredients: sour cherry, dairy product


Chicken Paprikash With Dumpling

The recipe of paprika chicken first appeared in 1830 in Istvan Czifray’s cookbook. The cookbook also included the recipes of gulyas and stew, which means the three different cooking processes were differentiated at this time already. Sour cream was also added to the paprikás and the dish was connected to the middle classes living of the city. The sour cream chicken paprikás started to spread to the lower classes from here. It first appeared on a restaurant menu in Szeged in 1825. By the middle of the 1800s the name paprikás had lost the stew/gulyas meaning used on the plains and started to be used exclusively to refer to the sour cream versions of the restaurant business. Usually it is served with small dumplings or pasta pellets and homemade pickles.

Main ingredients: chicken, dairy product, egg, flour.


Pancake Hungarian Style

(with sweet cottage cheese, homemade fruit jam, cocoa, poppy-seed, walnut)

The original pancake comes from ancient Roman times and was called in Latin placenta. This flat dough was baked on a round stone or on a bronze shield. Its ingredients were flour, water and a little salt. It had a very important role in feeding the Roman legions because it could be stored for a longer time. Nowadays it is made from milk and we also put eggs in it. We add homemade jams, cottage cheese, walnut, poppy-seed or cocoa powder and it is served for breakfast, lunch or dinner as well.

 Main ingredients: milk, flour, egg.
