Koerner, A., Jewish Cuisine in Hungary - A Cultural History with 83 Authentic Recipes: [Review]

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Arts/Article review

Abstract

András Koerner's Jewish Cuisine in Hungary is a comprehensive account, including many visual images, of the foodways of Hungarian Jews from the mid nineteenth-century until 1945. The present English edition is a translation of Koerner's/Kӧrner's A Magyar zsidó kunyha: kultúrtӧrténet 77 autentikus recepttel (Budapest: Corvina, 2017). In its scope this work is related
to Koerner's previous publication, likewise by the Central European University Press, How They Lived – the Everyday Life of Hungarian Jews 1867-1949, published in two volumes (2015, 2016). Koerner is an architect who was born in Budapest in 1940 and who since 1967 lives in the United Sates. Following his retirement, Koerner has devoted his time to writing and curating
exhibitions about Hungarian-Jewish everyday life in the last two centuries, including HungarianJewish cookbooks and other gastronomical products and practices.
