Hung(a)ry for Goulash

Hungarian GoulashIf you haven’t treated your taste buds to Goulash, you’re missing out. Commonly found in, among others, Germany, Austria, Croatia, Northern Italy and Hungary (where it originated,) this beefy meal is a mouthwatering delight that originated in Hungary.

Now, you’ll have noticed by now that a country or city will turn virtually anything into an event/festival (e.g. Matchmaking Festival in Ireland, “Thumb War” wrestling in Germany etc.)  Therefore, it should come to no surprise  that there is a festival dedicated to this famous beef stew, and it takes place annually in the Goulash-capital of Szolnok, Hungary.

Each year (for the past 11 years) up to 70,000 people attend this event and watch over 600 large kettles brew the meat.

The original recipe is usually made up of beef, onions, green peppers and paprika.

If you happen to be in the Hungarian area in the next days, don’t miss this traditional event that celebrates this world-famous dish.

Can’t make it to the real deal, why not have a go at testing your cooking skills by following this recipe from a fellow blogger, The Hungarian Girl.
