Looking for the best authentic Hungarian cookbook
Any recommendations? Available in either English or French. I have read June's website and am considering purchasing that book but just looking for other ideas as well.
I have Gourmet Pot by Kálmán Tolnai, with such authentic recipes as (pork) "kidney and brains with mushroom." Is that what you're looking for?
This is in English, but with measures by weight (grams).
It's small and not terribly comprehensive, but Gundel's Hungarian Cookbook, a collection of recipes from Karoly Gundel of the Gundel Restaurant in Budapest, offers a very good selection of authentic Hungarian dishes prepared in the traditional manner, with some inevitable modern ones done in the Hungarian style - 124 recipes in all, plus historical notes and a short treatise on Hungarian cooking. Corvina Kiadó is the listed author, Ágnes Kádár the translator, published and printed in Hungary 1986. Got mine for $1 at an estate sale, apparently, but I've seen other copies. No ISBN #, sorry. Go talk to Amazon.
