Hungarian Goulash & Paprikash
Hungarian Goulash (porkolt) in Hungarian, was cooked as early as 800 A.D. by Hungarians (magyars).
They used large cauldron (bogracs) and cooked over and open fire.
So Goulash is a meal with history...

You will realize how easy it is to cook a goulash and how delicious each recipe is. Hungarian Goulash should not be confused with Hungarian Goulash Soup (seen on photo). They are two different dishes.

Vegetable Main Dishes (Fozelek)
There are unique vegetable Main dishes called "Főzelék" in Hungary. They are very light, many of them appear "creamed" although there is no cream in them.
These dishes are being cooked every day during the week in Hungary. They only require minimal time to whip up and are a healthy alternative to heavy dinners.
You will fall in love with "fozelek" in no time and your family will wonder how you dreamed up such never seen dishes.

My Hungarian Meat dishes are very easy to prepare and a healthy alternative to your everyday meat dishes.
I do not use any of the fat or drippings from my oven-baked dishes, because I like to serve my friends and family a healthier version of everything I create.
There are no gravies in Hungary. People do not use the drippings of meats.
With dishes such as the leg of lamb seen on the photo, I drain the fat off and serve the fruit and veggies on the side. They still contain some minimal fat, but not enough to harm you.
