I have used this book for over 20 years and it is still a favorite! The Hunter's Style Pot Roast can only be described as outstanding. I always use this recipe, and I've never looked back. The noodle side dishes are wonderful, tasting very homey and similar to your childhood favorites, even if you didn't grow up with them. I loved learning about about Hungarian wines and the anecdotes the author tells of traveling in Hungary and learning to cook Hungarian are delightful.

Central and Eastern Europ
This cookbook has some very good recipes. It was first published in 1972. This book probably can only be obtained at the library or a used bookstore. I would doubt it is currently in print. I loved the background on Hungarian wines and on Hungarian agriculture. If you can obtain one of these books it will be will worth hanging on to if you have a deep interest in Hungarian cuisine.
