Hungarian Food

Hungarian food is the traditional cuisine of the Magyar or Hungarian people. Hungarian food typically includes dishes using meats, specific fruits and vegetables, bread and dairy products. Generally speaking, a large portion of Hungarian meals involve stews, casseroles and assortment of varieties and cuts of meats and sausages.

Somewhat uniquely, Hungarian dishes often combine several types of meat into one dish, such as Goulash, which combine beef, pork and possibly mutton. Hungarian cuisine is also popular for delicious desserts like a variety of crepes and pastries.
