A variation of the plum dumplings, this is a great way to use apricots in a dish. These dumplings are a great idea for breakfast or dinner (with a glass of cold milk); they can also be served as dessert.
My grandmother used to make this dish pretty often, especially during lent. As a child I was not too found of it but now I like it and, to my surprise, my kids also enjoy eating cabbage and noodles, especially my three year old daughter.
A couple weeks ago I visited the International Home & Housewares Show in Chicago. I was happy to see few stands with Polish Pottery, hopefully we get to see more of these items in department stores.
Here are a couple of photos sent by our readers. One is from Hungary and one from Poland. Meat plays an important part in the Eastern European Cuisine and I believe these pictures capture this. Also using a wood plate makes food taste so much better and looks very appetizing.
Poland, Zakopane – a traditional restaurant with many kinds of meat dishes. It looks delicious!
Hungary, Budapest – a great assortment of meat dishes served with fries, vegetables, and pickled hot peppers.
We have a different doughnut in Eastern Europe than what people are familiar with in the US. I also think its much more delicious but you’ll have to try it to find out.
