The Challenge

Hungarian & Vegan: Lecsó

In August a nice Hungarian couple visited us. They did surf our couch and of course as they were veggies – they also teached me how to make the most typical Hungarian dish you can find – yummy Lecsó!


The visit of Dora and Gabor was again a little bit like traveling ourselves. They told us a lot about what it means to live in Hungary. And we had a nice political discussion in the evening after our delicious dinner.


That´s indeed one of the many things I enjoy during my cooking challenge – to also learn a bit about the country my guests come from. Cultural exchange is one of the most exciting things in live which I can imagine.

Gabor was the cooking chief in my kitchen this evening because he knows how to make a really good Hungarian Lecsó.
