Taste of Hungary

The Chicago Hungarian Society is excited to present The VI. Annual Taste of Hungary and would like to invite you and your family, friends to come and to join us on September 10 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 this year the Enyedi Salamon Quartet and one of Hungary's best dancers, István Berecz as well as the Kormorán, a famous band from Hungary with Ferenc Gulyás and Sándor Haáz.You can also enjoy performances from local performers such as Csaba Tamás and the Borozda Hungarian Ensemble, who guarantee live music throughout the day.

Come and enjoy a multitude of traditional Hungarian dishes including the world renowned Gulyás (the famous Hungarian goulash - a rich meat stew). TThe 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.

And this year's SPECIAL is a whole roasted ox on charcoal and can experience live sausage stuffing - which you can even taste afterwards!!!

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!

Kinek arcán szőr már hersen,
Lesz itt annak bajusz verseny!
Zajlik majd egy kutyagála
S leesik a jónép álla!

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!
