Hungarian recipe site

I was looking down the tree and I noticed that there is no skill for "food" until almost at the very bottom. I didn't want to wait that long to learn food names in Hungarian, so I went ahead and found this recipe site. It's called apróséf. The website itself is a little hard to look at, it's a bit cluttered, but I find the setup of the website very easy to navigate.

I just joined a few hours ago and I've already learned so many new words and food names!

how do you say food in Hungarian?


In any language, you should at least be able to buy the ingredients for pancakes after a month!
so, here you are: Liszt + tojas + cukor + tej (+ taj) = palacsinta


Hungarian food is the best. I might use this not even to learn Hungarian... just for the food.
