Gulyásleves (Hungarian Goulash Soup) (Hungarische Gulaschsuppe)

> > As  I get older, I sadly realize that many of the dishes I took for granted and did not appreciate in my younger years only continue to exist in my memory and are forever gone in my daily life. Many dishes I remember from my years growing-up in Germany have vanished from my surroundings. Especially […]

Hungarian Beef Goulash

> > Today  I combined breakfast, lunch and dinner all into one fabulous meal. (I did however have a few fruits throughout the day). Goulash is one of the dishes which were a staple in the South of Germany when I grew up and it was enjoyed in most homes and simple and even fine restaurants frequently. Goulash is quite […]

Ungarischer Rinder Gulasch (Hungarian Beef Goulash)

(Pork is not typically used for goulash in classic Hungarian cuisine). The Austrian/German name Szegediner Gulasch is probably misleading since the Hungarian name for the (Austrian) dish does not connect to the city […]

Rösti With Mushrooms In Cream

> > Life  is all about the crispy bits………….. 🙂 Most folks would probably agree with this statement, especially when we’re talking food, and of course especially when we are talking fried, baked or sautéed  potatoes. And, in my own, humble opinion, of all the great potato dishes, the undisputed king is “Rösti”. Crispy on the […]

Crispy Noodle Cake & Ginger/Garlic Shrimp

> > I usually  shy away from crispy noodle cakes in asian restaurants because it can be a bit messy to eat when you are with company, but I love to prepare it at home, where I can use fork, knife, hands, chopsticks, or whatever else I need to pull it apart. I actually prefer […]
