If you're at all into Hungarian cuisine, George Lang is an essential. If you don't think you're particularly interested in Hungarian food (and believe me you are missing A LOT) -- this is a great book to get just for the desserts, and specifically the cakes. I've baked many of them and they are to die for. Your guests will not stop talking.

This is slow food as it was meant to be. Same for the baking. Wholesome ingredients, hearty food, light fresh pastry. All are easily made as organic as well. It's also worth noting that the Hungarian stews (goulashes, paprikash, etc.) are extremely well-suited for a crockpot and freeze well. Just make sure you use good authentic paprika as your base.

I found an old copy in a library book sale. It is full of old recipes for authentic Hungarian food. In other words, it's a pretty rare bird in the US; no one cooks like this any more with the advent of fast food, takeout, and three-career families.
I have so far used two of the dessert recipes. They aren't difficult, just time consuming. One cake took me close to three hours, clean-up time included. A big stand mixer is almost required for several of the cakes in here; I would NOT recommend trying some of these by hand unless you have very strong arms and a copper egg bowl.
OTOH, the results are delicious, and vanish rapidly.

The Cuisine of Hungary, was in good condition and came in time to give it as a gift. I have enjoyed using this book myself and believe it is one of the best Hungarian cookbooks. I gave it to a newly wed that wishes to learn how to cook Hungarian dishes. This book also gives muchy insight to Hungarian culture. The condition of the book was not perfect but was very good.
