Taste of Hungary: typical Hungarian food you should try

The characteristic taste of Hungarian cuisine is the result of a development rooted in the history of the same people. The know-how is based on the climatic qualities, on the legacy of traditional breeding and on the manufacture of food products.

In Hungarian cuisine, the first course is almost always broth or some aromatic soup. This is followed by a meat dish that is often prepared together with side dishes such as stuffed sauerkraut, potato pie, baked shin, etc. The pickled vegetables in a sweet and sour blend well with the meat dishes.

Desserts are varied and often are prepared at home. Traditional Hungarian confectionery, as well as basic ingredients such as milk, flour, egg, uses ricotta, seasonal fruit, jams, walnuts, and poppy seeds.
