Taste of Hungary

The Chicago Hungarian Society is excited to present The VII. Annual Taste of Hungary and would like to invite you and your family, friends to come and to join us on September 16 for this mouthwatering festival!

Hungary has a very rich and lively cultural heritage including a distinctive language, unique traditions of music and dance, and most importantly it is a country with a myriad of culinary traditions!

Our special guests are Péter Gerendás, the Török Testvérek from Hungary and the Hangulat Duo from Canada.

You can also enjoy the performance of our local performers Borozda Hungarian Ensemble.

Come and enjoy a multitude of traditional Hungarian dishes including the world renowned Gulyás (the famous Hungarian goulash - a rich meat stew). The goulash will be made by the winner of the 2015 Gulyás Festival - team MarhaJó.

We will also have Halászlé - fisherman's soup, and Meggyleves - chilled sour/tart cherry soup (which is actually sweet ...). There will also be Csirkepaprikás - chicken paprikash, and Töltött káposzta - stuffed cabage as well. Our new vegetarian dish will be the LECSO this year which is a vegetable stew with rice.

You'll also find plenty of options to satisfy your sweet (and salty) tooth including Lángos - deep fried flat bread - elephant ears, Kürtőskalács - chimney cake, Palacsinta - crêpes and more!

Entrance fee:
~ $20 - adults (ticket includes 2 meal tickets)
~ $7 - each additional meal ticket

Ria, ria, Hungária!
Dagadt malac nem ezt ríja,
Mikor éppen vágni viszik.
Aki magyar, erre iszik!

Jó sok étel által oson
Kanadai néptáncoson,
Énekesen, zenészeken,
S bélbolyhokat dús szaft beken!

Borozdások is jót esznek,
Megágyazva honi szesznek.
Vidáman zajlik e hecc itt,
My hungry friends, come on let’s eat!

Hogyha még ma élő lenne,
Liszt Ferenc is jókat enne,
Levest, kolbászt, lángost, rétest…
Sorolni is kevés hét est!

Chicago-ba kéne menni,
Magyar ételt kéne enni,
S mire múlik ez a hét el,
Elfogy minden magyar étel!

In Hungary no one’s hungry,
Ám itt már pár éhes hang rí:
Üres hassal vesztjük eszünk,
Sok a duma, mikor eszünk?!

Megértem e zúgást, na, ja,
Elhallgatok s jöjjön kaja!
