Food Wine Budapest

Food Wine Budapest A publication written by Carolyn Banfalvi, an American expatriate living in Budapest. Covers pretty much everything related to food and beverages, coffee houses, restaurants, wine bars and wine shops in this exciting city. Excellent photography gives you a good flavor what to expect. Detailed addresses make it easy for you to explore the culinary wonders of this illustrious city at the Danube River or the Duna, as the Hungarians lovingly call the main geographic feature separating the hilly Buda-side from the flats of the Pest-side.

"Food Wine Budapest: A Terroir Guide, by Carolyn Banfalvi, concentrates on gastronomic pleasures. It is, quite simply, the best guide available today to the culinary renaissance of the city and region in the post-communist era. Banfalvi profiles some of the best restaurants and wine bars in Budapest, but also includes cafes, pastry shops, specialty food shops and markets, as well as the traditions behind their offerings. Helpfully, she includes extensive translations for the names of wines, foods and cooking methods as well. This is the first book in a new series called Terroir Guides, which promises to explore cities or regions, focusing on the way local influences are reflected in food and wine. The Budapest guide sets a high standard for those that follow." —Laszlo Buhasz, The Globe and Mail
