Hungarian cuisine has long been one of the most savoury cuisines in Europe. With its world-famous paprikás, gulyás and pörkölt, it has earned a reputation for being abundant, spicy and rather heavy. Hungarian cuisine, however, is much more than paprika or gulyás: it also offers a huge variety of soups, cheese, poultry, fish and fruits. It is, in fact, one of the richest cuisines in the world.
The author of this book, Tamás Bereznay, has been the ambassador of Hungarian cuisine for many years. As the former chef of the state president, he knows exactly what foreign diplomats, royalty and aristocrats like about Hungarian cuisine. Bereznay has collected their favourite dishes in this beautiful cookbook, filled with mouth-watering photographs and easy-to-make recipes (and yes, gulyás is also included!).
Amrita Sondhi - The Tastes of Ayurveda
Ayurveda, the five thousand-year-old healing tradition from India linked to the development of yoga, is based on the concept that one's physical, mental, and spiritual well-being comes from a number of sources, including a healthful diet based on one's individual constitution. In this vegetarian cookbook, Amrita Sondhi, author of The Modern Ayurvedic Cookbook (now in its fourth printing), provides new twists on traditional Ayurvedic recipes that are also inspired by the growing popularity of whole grains (quinoa, spelt, and barley) and raw foods. The Ayurvedic diet is based on the concept of three "doshas": vata (air), pitta (fire), and kapha (earth). Each of us has a primary dosha that we can strive to maintain at a healthy balance, but which can cause problems if excessive. The book includes a questionnaire so readers can determine their own primary dosha and then look for recipes that will help them to maintain or reduce it for optimal health. Recipes include modern interpretations of Indian cuisine (spicy paneer zucchini kabobs and mango and coconut kulfi), and Ayurvedic spins on vegetarian fare (sprouted barley rainbow pilaf and raw zucchini hummus). The book also includes yoga and breathing exercises that one can easily do at home or at work, full-color recipe photos, and information on sprouting/fermenting techniques and backyard gardening. The Tastes of Ayurveda offers simple and delicious ways to achieve a more healthful and serene life. Amrita Sondhi is a yoga instructor, Ayurvedic cooking teacher, and the owner of Movement, a sustainable fiber clothing line.

Jack Czarnecki - A Cook's Book of Mushrooms
Portobello, Cremini, Shiitake, and Enoki mushrooms—and even morels and chanterelles—are commonly showing up in supermarkets and specialty stores these days. Advances in mushroom cultivation have made varieties that were once available only to experienced mushroom hunters now easy for all to find, and a number of mail-order sources provide more exotic kinds. But what should a cook do with all these mushroom varieties? How do you bring out their most distinctive characteristics in the kitchen? In A Cook's Book of Mushrooms, Jack Czarnecki, chief proprietor of Joe's Restaurant in Reading, Pennsylvania, provides the answers. Czarnecki gives an account of his life-long fascination with mushrooms—hunting them, cooking them, and eating them. He describes the characteristics of the principle edible mushrooms and provides 100 tasty recipes for both the widely available "wild" mushrooms as well as the more exotic varieties. Seven chapters cover the major mushroom families—Buttons and Saucers: The Genus Agaricus; Aristocrats of the Forest: Morels and Truffles; The King and Lesser Nobility: Cepes and Their Cousins; Flowers or Fungus?: Chanterelles; Mushrooms from Wood; From the East; and The Best of the Rest. The recipes include appetizers, main courses, salads, and even breakfast dishes that use mushrooms in starring and supporting roles, such as Morels with Ruffled Pasta, Wild Mushroom and Onion Soup, Barbecued Oysters and Shiitake Mushrooms, and Salmon with Chanterelles and Red Pepper Puree. The author—whose knowledge of wine rivals his knowledge of mushrooms—includes wine or beer suggestions for most dishes.

Mautner Zsófia - Gyere velem főzni
Különleges hozzávalókból izgalmasat főzni? Erre sokan képesek. De ahhoz Mautner Zsófia kell, hogy egészen hétköznapi hozzávalók lényegüljenek át mesterkonyhai fogásokká. Viszlát, homár – szervusz, karalábé! A Chili&Vanília blog szerzője könyvében vadonatúj receptek sokaságával hívja ízes és sikeres felfedezésekre olvasóit. Nyugodtan bízzák rá magukat! Ebből az új könyvből főzni olyan, mintha ott állna mellettünk egy segítőkész barátnő. Nem véletlen, hogy blogjának eddig több 3 millió látogatója volt: ő bizony tud valamit, amit senki más nem. Családi ebédek, Irány a piac!, Utazás – ez a három fejezet tagolja ezt a változatos receptgyűjteményt. Az első fejezet az emlékeké és a nosztalgiáé, olyan receptekkel, amelyeket a szerző gyermekkora ihletett, és amelyek a mai generációnak is izgalmasak. Töltött libanyak, vörösboros marhapofa, ropogós slambuc, egérke és Ferdinánd – mind csupa régi, újra felfedezésre váró étel. A második fejezet főszereplői a hazai piacok zöldségei és gyümölcsei. Mautner Zsófia nagyszerű, izgalmas receptekkel újítja meg a sokszor elfeledett vagy méltatlanul unalmasnak gondolt alapanyagokat – a karalábéból tüzes kókusztejes-gyömbéres krémlevest, a a vajbabból üde bodzás vajbabfőzeléket, a birsalmából pedig isteni, bő fél óra alatt elkészülő karamellizált hagymás-csirkés ragut készít. A harmadik részben utazásra hív a szerző, többek között török, arab, kínai, koreai, vietnami és olasz vidékekre. Hogy milyen egyszerű összedobni a tökéletes török bárányhúsos lepényt (lahmacun), hogy mennyire kényeztető a chilivel és vaníliával sült csirke, és hogy hogyan készül az igazi pho leves (vietnami marhahúsleves rizstésztával) vagy a török csicseriborsós rizs (nohutlu pilav), amelyhez szaftos báránycsülök dukál? Mindez kiderül a könyvből, melyben a precíz, többszörösen tesztelt recepteket olvasmányos élménybeszámolók foglalják hangulatos keretbe. Mautner Zsófia Magyarország egyik legolvasottabb, több mint 3 millió látogatót számláló gasztroblogjának, a Chili&Vaníliának a szerzője. 2009-ben brüsszeli diplomataéletét cserélte fel a gasztronómiai szakértő szabadúszó státuszával. Miután hazaköltözött, megjelent az első szakácskönyve, amely óriási sikert aratott. Ezután sorra jöttek a felkérések: éttermek, főzőiskolák, rádiós és televíziós műsorok, valamint számos nyomtatott és internetes magazin dicséri munkáját. Jelenleg Budapesten él.
