I've never heard that CucumberMan - but it sounds mighty good. And I question whether something is TRULY Hungarian if it doesn't have sour cream in it? :P

And the more innards in goulash there was the better it was considered to be. (I'll stick with the "outtards")

Of course, but you don't add sour cream before goulash is completely cooked, do you? That's why I didn't mention it. Besides, some people don't put it at all but I think they're wrong because sour cream gives goulash both nice flavour and colour.

LOL the sour cream was said jokingly because sooooo many Hungarian recipes use it (hense the emoticons used) - I've never used it in Goulash but do use it in Paprikash.

I can't wait to try your addition of garlic, parsley, and bacon towards the end next time though!

Thanks for your recipes Kitchen Elf. My bestest friend in the whole wide world married a Hungarian chap. I went to his mother's house for lunch once with my then boyfirend, and she was so funny, a large, always smiling woman ladling out the richest of dishes saying "eat, eat!" over and over again, and we did, only to be faced with plates and plates of cakes and biscuits (oops cookies) :oops:

At their wedding, each Hungarian lady brought a plate of cakes or cookies, it was delightful.

My friend lived with her in-laws for a year, and nearly went crazy, my friend - not the most health concious person in the world, was craving salad and grilled chicken by then end, because as you say kithen elf, it is not the lightest cuisine in the world!

I am half Hungarian and half German. The foods are really delicious, but oh so heavy. I rarely cook either, but do enjoy a good ethnic meal occasionally. I really do love cucumbers and sour cream!!!!

Hi Essie,

not all of the german food is heavy. The problem is that poeple only know a few famous german dishes, and they are heavy, no doubt about that. 8) But there's a lot more than that. (I should know, because I'm German )

Think about that delicious german-bread variety. All those whole grain varieties and crusty baked rye breads. Much more healthy than fluffy white bread
And what about Quark??

I gonna post some of my bread recipes and other german recipes (also the making of good old quark) in the ethnic category these days.

German food

Hi,
I know you are correct when you say all German foods are not heavy.
I'm looking forward to trying your bread recipes when they are posted. I have wonderful memories of a trip to Germany in the 90's eating the wonderful breads for breakfast every day.

I really do enjoy German food. Although I never have had "light" German food.
