After a bit of a hiatus, I am attempting to start the year off with a journey back to my kitchen. After completing my comprehensive exams last Saturday, I thought "I need a serious mental holiday"....cooking restores my sanity (or at least the amount of sanity I am capable of!).
In all of our wild European adventures, nothing compares to the food in Budapest. Such flavors and OH-My-GOD the wine and the music were divine! The stories we could tell (such as taking a huge risk and booking a room in remote, little recommended pension in the center of the old district.....turned out to be a 900 year old castle and the only place to sleep other than the communist-style Hilton!)
Always a rebel :-)
