What's cookin, Hungarian?

As most of the members live far away from my country and I would be really interested, my question would be:

What comes to your mind if I say Hungarian food?

spaetzle: I thought it's something I don't know... it turned out that I do. I haven't heard this name yet. I thought their english name is noodles. :)
I'm still looking for what u mean with weinkraut. :)
and how did u get to know Hungarian food? do u have some acquaintances or relatives, or travelled somewhere to europe or how?
I checked the site, thanks... I haven't thought that there's such a site like that. I was amazed. :)

America consists of people from every part of the world, including Hungary. Most of us are mixes of various nationalities, what President Obama called "mongrels" (referring to himself). For example, my last name is of Irish origin. My mother was from Canada but her parents were from England, and she also had French ancestors (or so she said). My father was mostly English and German, but there's some Italian and Russian in there, too. That side of the family has been in the U.S. since before the Revolutionary War (1776). I'm white, but based on the family name and history, I'm sure I have a lot of black cousins.

My wife is Jewish, and her father's father and mother were Hungarian.

My son-in-law is half Austrian.

My niece and nephew are half Japanese.

All of this makes for some great food!

can they cook paprikáskrumpli? Or maybe lecsó or töltöttpaprika? These last two are hard to cook abroad, cause u need some kind of paprika/capsium that I've met only in Hungary. It's yellow and longer than than one we call Californian paprika/capsium. :)

I used to have Chicken Paprika with bread dumplings and Liver Dumpling Soup for lunch everyday when I lived in Chicago. I thought I had died and gone to Heaven. I can't find a great recipe for either dish. .

Yeah, I know these things, but still, as I haven't been to America, it's hard to imagine. Especially, as in Hungary there aren't many imigrants, as in western Europe. It's something different to know about it and to live in that culture. Sometimes I'm really jealous. And I was also surprised cause I thought there will be someone in a few days that will answer me something, but I didn't expect u to know that much.

I'll check out the site, thanks.
