These Old World recipes were brought to America by the author's grandparents, but they have been updated to accommodate today's faster-paced lifestyles. In many cases, the author presents a New World version of the recipe, in which low-fat and more readily available ingredients are substituted without compromising flavour. The new chapter on breads focuses on yeast breads, with a short section on quick breads. This is more than just a collection of 142 enticing Hungarian recipes. The author offers culinary tips, explains characteristics of the Hungarian language, and includes a glossary of terms used throughout the book.
