This is my favorite set of cookbooks. These are like travel guides. Each region is carefully explained, and the food that region is known for is detailed. The pictures are exquisite. The books are so heavy that I have to get them down off the shelf for my mom and put her at the dining room table (as she's too little to hold these in her lap)! In Hungary, it's all about the spice, which Cameron loves and me...well not so much. So, I use this book for recipe ideas and then go and get more moderate ...more

This is the first one of the Culinaria books that I've read and I really like the format. It's got a ton of tradtional and current Hungarian recipes, but it's also got sections of cultural and historical sections on all things involving food and drink in this country - including paprika production, tokay wines, hog butchering, etc. It even has bits on famous resturants, coffee houses, and bakeries. Holidays and holiday food are also covered. I am very impressed.

The table of contents is somewhat nonsensical and the index is useless, but everything my mother and I have made from this book comes out tasting just like my grandmother used to make.

The best chicken paprika recipes! I got this book because it was on sale in a bookstore and it made me appreciate hungarian cuisine. You should also try langos and handmade dumplings.
